Best Places To Propose In The UK

Finding the best proposal spot to pop the question to your partner can be tricky. We've listed some of the best places to propose in the UK.

When you plan an engagement proposal, there are plenty of things you need to consider. Choosing the right location to propose to your partner is just as important as what you’re going to say and the engagement ring itself. Having a perfect backdrop to pop the question will ensure they say yes to your proposal.

As there are plenty of romantic spots in the UK, finding the perfect location to propose to your partner can be difficult. You’ve spent a considerable amount of time looking for a spot to propose to, but you’re struggling to find one that you want to make the proposal to your partner. 

Diamond Heaven has listed five of the best places to propose in the UK to make that perfect proposal to the love of your life.

London Eye, London

The London Eye in London provides a stunning backdrop to make that proposal day unforgettable. You can hire a private capsule, which enables you and your partner to soak in the panoramic views of the London skyline.

When it comes to finding a location that won’t break the bank, the London Eye is a great spot to propose to her. Once you’re at the top of the London Eye, why not get down to one knee, pop the question and create a moment that you and your partner will never forget.

Lake District 

While the UK has plenty of beautiful places to visit, the Lake District is a stunning place to propose to your partner. The landscape of lakes, forests and mountains makes it an incredible proposal spot for her to say yes to your engagement proposal.

It’s worth considering the time of year to make the proposal in the Lake District as it can get very cold during the winter months. You won’t be short of many spots to propose in private, such as Derwentwater or Scafell Pike to get down on one knee and pop your partner the question. 

St Michael’s Mount, Cornwall

Cornwall is filled with plenty of picturesque locations. The island of St Michael’s Mount is by far the most incredible spot to propose to your partner in the region. There is a causeway that’s connected to the mainland that can only be accessed at low tide to get to the island.

For a picturesque location such as St Michael’s Mount, it’s worth proposing next to the castle. The view across the Cornish coast once you’ve popped the question will make it a day she’ll remember for the rest of her life.

Llanddwyn Island, Wales 

Named after the 4th-century princess St Dwynwen, Llanddwyn Island allows you and your partner to soak in the sights of what the island has to offer. With views of Snowdonia, mixed in with scenic walks along the coast makes it a truly stunning place to propose in Wales.

In terms of proposal locations, the ruins of St Dwynwen’s Church or with a view across the Menai Strait to Snowdonia are worth considering. As far as proposal spots go in the UK, proposing in a location that’s named after Wales’ patron saint of lovers will ensure she says yes to your proposal.

Isle of Skye 

There is no shortage of locations to choose from on the Isle of Skye. From the Fairy Pools to Sligachan Bridge, whatever spot you choose to propose to your partner will create a unique and magical backdrop for your proposal.

When it comes to a location we recommend on the Isle of Skye, it’s Talisker Bay Beach. Why not capture your proposal on camera by proposing to her with a shot of the towering cliffs? The visual backdrop of the island as you propose to your partner will make that day one that’s etched in both of your minds forever.


Picking a place to propose to your partner can be difficult, but at the same time be the start of a long and happy marriage. We hope these five places will give you some options for choosing a proposal spot that will make that day one that will stick with you and your partners for the rest of your lives.
