With Valentine's Day fast approaching and love well and truly in the air, we've selected a few of the most romantic spots in the UK perfect for a proposal. Whether your ideal setting would be paddling down the river in Richmond, sitting under a canopy of twinkly lights in the World's Most Romantic Restaurant, or flying high across the Sussex countryside, these hotspots are sure to tug on your heart strings and make for the perfect proposal.
A boat ride in Richmond
If your kind of proposal is Hugh Grant inspired, then hitch yourself a boat on the Thames in Richmond. Complete with picnic, champagne and basic rowing skills, you can pop the question whilst floating down the river in the beautiful suburb. Lined with trees and parks, you'll forget you're only a short train ride from urban life.
London's most romantic restaurant
Nestled under a canopy of flowers and twinkling fairy lights, Clos Maggiore has won a number of romantic restaurant awards, with Architectural Digest naming it The Most Romantic Restaurant in the World in 2016. Surrounded by the cobbled streets of London's Covent Garden, this would be the perfect proposal spot for a real foodie, as you make your way through the delicious menu gazing at the beautiful décor.
Hot air balloon in Sussex
Soar over the Sussex countryside and outskirts of London as you float through the sky with British Balloon Flights. You'll be sure to get hearts racing with a romantic private hot air balloon flight, witnessing stunning panoramic views as you get down on one knee - how could they say no?
Log cabin with a hot tub
What could be more romantic than being tucked away in the forest with a roaring fire, glass of wine in hand and a hot tub ready to slip in to on the balcony? For a more secluded proposal book a night away at one of the UK's increasingly popular log cabin breaks complete with hot tub and beautiful surrounding woodland.
Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh
Head up North for a historic proposal in one of the UK's most beautiful cities. Edinburgh is bursting with culture and the perfect spot for a proposal at the castle with views across the whole of the city. Timing it just as the sun starts to set will cast romantic long shadows across the cobbles and make the moment extra special.
The Shard, London
With exquisite views of London, and even more incredible at sunset, The Shard is the ultimate location for a sky-high proposal. In addition to the stunning 360 views, you can book a night at one of the world's most iconic buildings in the Shangri-La Hotel which boasts panoramic skyline views from 4 restaurants and bars, and the highest infinity Sky Pool in London.
