And with Christmas literally around the corner, it is as we know, the most romantic time of the year.

We have teamed up with The Proposers, the most successful wedding proposal events company in the world who have arranged over 1200 proposals, with a 100% “YES” rate to that all-important question!

Owner and founder Daisy Amodio tell us “It is the most popular time of year to propose, we love creating magical proposals in the London Eye because it has the best views over London! Imagine being serenaded in your own private capsule, what could be more magical?”


One of the most sought out venues on offer is the iconic London Eye with its stunning 360 degree views inside your very own private capsule. To enhance your experience, the Proposers can offer an array of varied packages which can be tailor made to suit anyone looking to propose! Singers, dancers, magicians and decorations are on offer during your 30 minute rotation that will have you falling in love with London all over again.


You can also bring romance onto the UK’s biggest ice-skating rink at The Natural History Museum or Canary Wharf for some city lights! Glide around with your loved one feeling that festive spirit; and from first note of that Christmas song being played, you will suddenly realise all you DO want for Christmas is your partner. The Proposers can offer skating dancers with personalised signs and will guide you all the way along the ice to your proposal; it’s time to get your skates on!


Madame Tussauds may be an unusual proposal space, but providing the couple in question love anything to do with the movies, music or the world entertainment, they can be immersed into the land of celebrities! There is no other option for venue hire in London quite like it.
The exclusive packages include everything you need to create and deliver an amazing experience for your partner when you propose over this Christmas period, Madame Tussauds is a “One off” experience. And The Proposers décor and a themed treasure hunt hidden in those celebrates pockets you love, finding personal memories or photos guiding you to your destination of a wedding proposal, you can’t get more bespoke than that!



Entering the buzzing world of pop up Christmas markets, feeling like you really are in Lap Land, you can enjoy the famous wooden cabins, and German food stools and mulled wine. Winter Wonderland is one of London’s largest Christmas markets where you can find the perfect gifts for your loved one or you can try the dazzling South Bank Centre Winter Market where you can savour plenty of eggnog and live entertainment throughout this festive season. !
