Romantic destinations for a proposal

You’ve got The One, you’ve picked the perfect engagement ring, so the next step is finding the perfect location to get down on one knee.

Getting engaged is a huge milestone in a person’s life, so finding the perfect location is important. Picking the right place to pop the question can enhance the romance and make it even more memorable. Why not make your proposal the holiday of a lifetime? Here are some destinations around the world that you should consider for your big moment.

New York

Known as The City That Never Sleeps, New York is a bustling hub of breath-taking culture, sights and history so there is something for all couples.

There are many iconic locations across the city so avid film fans will be able to recreate their favourite rom-com. Start by going for a stroll through Central Park and find your way to Bow Bridge. This bridge has been featured in many films and TV shows, so it is the perfect place to pop the question.


Another city with a fitting nickname is Paris. Also known as the City of Love, Paris is full of romantic corners perfect for a proposal.

Whilst going up the Eiffel Tower is the obvious one, it can be a bit crowded up there. Instead, head to the 7th floor of Terrass Hotel located in Montmartre. The views are stunning, and the Eiffel Tower is in the distance. With a menu to die for, it can’t get much more romantic than this.


Greece’s islands truly encompass a level of beauty that is hard to find anywhere else. Between the glittering blue Aegean Sea and the bright white houses, this island would make a swoon-worthy backdrop for a proposal.

If you are an outdoorsy couple, a slightly challenging walk up the peak of Skaros Rock you can watch the sunset together over some incredible views. This is the perfect time to pop the question and start the celebrations in a bar in nearby Imerovigli.


Bruges might not be the first place that springs to mind when thinking about romantic places to propose, but the city has a fairytale look with its architecture and canals.

Southern Bruges has the idyllic Minnewater for you to stroll around. Plan your walk so that you end up on the bridge when you are ready to propose. You could regale your loved one with the legend of Minna which says that your love will be eternal if you cross the bridge. Popping the question after that doesn’t get much more eternal!


Seeing the Northern Lights in person is something on a lot of bucket lists. It is hard to imagine anything more perfect than starting an engagement underneath the stunning colours.

During the day, visit the Blue Lagoon and spend the day relaxing and covering each other in the world-famous mud that is said to have regenerative properties. With restaurants and cafes on-site, you can really make a day of it and feel your best before summoning the courage to propose.
