3 Perfect Proposal Places in Cardiff
If you feel Cardiff would be a beautiful place for the occasion, here are some of the most iconic settings where you could propose!
Whether you're Welsh or simply feel that its historic landmarks and gorgeous views would be an idyllic place to propose, we've listed three of our preferred places where you could pop the question in Cardiff. Of course, we'll leave it to you to pick your favourite location from this impressive shortlist!
1. Cardiff Castle
A leading heritage attraction, Cardiff Castle is located within the heart of the capital city. With its own proposal package now available, this romantic destination is rich in history and pride.
The Roman Fort is believed to be the first of four forts to occupy the present site. Despite dating back to an estimated late 50s AD, remains of the Roman wall can still be seen today. Rebuilt after the Norman conquest on the same site, Cardiff Castle went on to be passed through many noble families. In 1766, it passed by marriage to the Bute family. Following the death of the 4th Marquess of Bute in 1947, the family decided to give the Castle to the city of Cardiff. As Cardiff Castle was also home to the National College of Music and Drama for a quarter of a century, this may be the ideal place to propose if you and your loved one share an affinity towards history, creativity and the performing arts.
2. National Museum Cardiff
If you'd prefer to propose while surrounded by famous artwork rather than within a significant venue for performing arts, then National Museum Cardiff may be the perfect location for you. The Museum is considered to be a romantic location, which features the work of Impressionist artists, including Van Gogh, Monet and Renoir.
The gallery within the Museum also frequently hosts exhibitions of masterpieces. With some exhibitions and events aimed at entertaining the whole family, this could be the perfect venue to propose if you have your own children or wish to be with close family when you propose.
3. Cardiff Bay
If you would like an idyllic view for your proposal, then Cardiff Bay, Europe's largest waterfront development, maybe the right location for you.
From restaurants and bars to boat trips, this Bay offers a variety of options for a proposal with a view to remember. If you opt for the sightseeing tour, you could choose whichever destination your partner seems to love or feels right at the time, for a more spontaneous proposal.
Whether you think the ideal location for you to pop the question to your loved one is listed above or not, there are plenty of other incredible attractions within Cardiff. Perhaps a more adventurous proposal could take place at the Ice Arena Wales, or the Pierhead, a Grade 1 listed building, may be more appropriate for you and your loved one. Regardless of where you choose to propose, Cardiff can always be relied upon for a romantic setting that will not disappoint and offers something enjoyable for everyone.
