    As London’s highest garden and boasting breathtaking views of the city, the verdant Sky Garden is a naturally romantic spot. Head to Frenchurch, the resident rooftop restaurant to propose, then celebrate with a bottle of bubbly at the City Garden Bar. skygarden.london

  • The Ivy Chelsea Garden

    See The Ivy Chelsea Garden’s brand-new Valentine’s-inspired installation which draws on French artist Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s enchanting 18th century ‘love swing’ painting. This, paired with romantic botanical-style interiors, romance-inducing cocktails – from the Rose Fizz to the Rose Petal Martini – and an amorous limited-edition dessert constitutes an ideal setting if you’re planning to propose this Valentine’s. theivychelseagarden.com

  • Kew Gardens

    Despite being a major attraction, Kew Gardens offers plenty of private and peaceful spots. Best for proposing on a balmy summers evening, the botanical garden’s multitude of picturesque and floral-filled spaces make the world-renowned garden an ideal spot to get down on one knee. kew.org

  • Planetarium

    The Peter Harrison Planetarium

    For an out-of-this-world experience, pop the question ‘under the stars’ at the Peter Harrison Planetarium. The Royal Museum’s digital star-gazing specialists will even be on hand to ensure everything goes to plan, from offering VIP access and a glass of bubbly to preparing the planetarium show and a complimentary visit to the Prime Meridian of the World where you’ll pose for your post-engagement photo against a spectacular backdrop of the city. rmg.co.uk
