The best places to propose in London
London has a lot to offer if you’re planning on proposing to your partner. It’s a city rich in history, the home of London’s theatre scene, and boasts some of the most romantic spots to propose.
Whether your partner loves soaking up pop culture, prefers sampling delicious food at a fine dining establishment, or enjoys nothing more than taking a stroll through the city’s many gardens and public parks, there’s something for everyone here.
1. Clos Maggiore
Clos Maggiore is often touted as one of London’s most romantic restaurants and it sees its fair share of proposals a week. But once you take a peek inside, you’ll understand why this is such a popular spot for getting engaged. Featuring contemporary French cuisine, a glowing fireplace, and a conservatory positively dripping with hanging flowers, this restaurant is an oasis of calm in the heart of Covent Garden. Throw in an impeccable wine list, and some of the best service in London, and you’ve got the recipe for a guaranteed “yes!”
2. The British Library
The creak of wooden floors. The hushed reverence of people browsing the shelves. The unmistakable scent of books and their pages. There honestly is nothing like a good library. If your partner is a fan of reading and literature, The British Library is an excellent place to get down on one knee. Pop the question in one of the many quiet nooks of the library for the perfect, intimate proposal. Just make sure you keep as quiet as possible - silence isn’t just golden here, it’s regulation. Once they’ve accepted, pop next door to the Champagne bar and celebrate in style.
3. Kew Gardens
The opulent charm of Kew Gardens makes for a truly romantic proposal. Take a stroll through the expansive gardens and wind your way through the steamy atmosphere of the famous greenhouses together. You’ve got 37 acres of woodland to play with, a multitude of different buildings, and countless different gardens to choose from to make your proposal perfect.
Browse through our guide to the best places to propose in London to find more recommendations for getting down on one knee.
Is it safe to travel on the tube with an expensive jewellery item?
Although the London Underground is considered fairly safe, and you will most likely be fine taking your shopping on the tube with you, we still recommend being discreet with your shopping. Pickpocketing does happen so if you feel uncertain whether your jewellery will be safe, store your Austen & Blake bag inside a zipped pocket in your backpack, handbag or other, opaque bag to keep your valuables as safe as possible.
