Where to propose in Newcastle

If you’re looking for places to pop the question in the North East of England, look no further than Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Famous for its industrial heritage, eponymous brown ale, popular nightlife and distinct regional ‘Geordie’ dialect, Newcastle is a lively and diverse city known for its nightlife, art, music, and sports.

The city has transformed itself from an industrial district into a cultural landmark and is now renowned for being the business and social hub of the North East. Here are our top three places to propose in Newcastle.

The Planetarium
1. The Planetarium

Newcastle is home to the North’s biggest planetarium. For those who love nothing more than stargazing, proposing beneath the night sky can be done at any time of year. Take a trip to the Life Science Centre to learn a thing or two about science before popping the question under the night sky during one of the real-time space shows.

2. Dine at Blackfriars

For history buffs, having a meal at the oldest purpose-built dining hall in Britain might just be the thing to make them say “yes”.

Established in the 1200s, Blackfriars restaurant plays host to all sorts of events and can even be booked out for weddings and other occasions. The delightful food and historical atmosphere make the perfect intimate space to get down on one knee.

3. The Alnwick Garden and The Treehouse restaurant

Less than an hour outside of the central city of Newcastle you will find The Alnwick Garden. 12 acres of multi-award-winning, gorgeous gardens boast some of the best walks in the North East of England and are the perfect day out with your love. When you’re done with your stroll, head to the magical Treehouse restaurant - an eatery suspended between the trees - for some delicious food and a proposal they can’t say no to.

Is travelling in Newcastle with an expensive jewellery item safe?

Newcastle is considered a fairly safe place but, just like if you are shopping in any other large city, when carrying an expensive item, it’s best to be discreet. Never leave valuables visible to pickpockets and don’t leave bags unattended anywhere. If you feel uncertain about how safe your purchase is, store your Austen & Blake bag inside a backpack or other, opaque bag to keep your valuables as safe as possible.
