Places to Propose
If you are planning on popping the question in Bath, take a look at our suggestions below for the perfect place to propose to your loved one.
From the Sky
Hot air balloons take off throughout the summer months and glide gracefully over the honey coloured stone buildings of Georgian Bath. Launch from Royal Victoria Park and fly over the rooftops of the Royal Crescent and the Circus before drifting out to the surrounding countryside. With a bottle of Champagne on board to toast your future together, what could be more romantic?
On the Palladian Bridge at Prior Park Landscape Garden
Created by entrepreneur and philanthropist Ralph Allen to complement his magnificent mansion on the Bath skyline, the eighteenth-century Prior Park Landscape Garden is set in a sweeping valley with panoramic views across the city. Laid out by Capability Brown the gardens include a stunning Palladian bridge, one of only four in the world, and a series of lakes. Prior Park is a National Trust property and has links to the Bath Skyline Walk, a six-mile circular walk around Bath.
Aboard a Bath Narrowboat
Experience the magic of the Kennet and Avon Canal by hiring a Bath Narrowboat. Privately charter a boat for the day, or book a bed and breakfast stay, and pop the question as you enjoy an intimate journey along the picturesque canal.
In an Open-Air Thermal Pool
Thermae Bath Spa is one of the most romantic settings in Bath. Open into the evening, you can enjoy a moonlit dip in the open-air rooftop pool overlooking the beautiful city. For total intimacy, the stand-alone Cross Bath, fed by its own natural hot spring, can be hired for exclusive use.
At the Top of Bath Abbey's Tower
Bath Abbey is the last of the medieval churches of England and is situated in the heart of the city centre next to the Roman Baths. Climb over 200 steps to the top of the tower and be rewarded with breathtaking views of Bath. Why not plan a private tour and organise for a bottle of Champagne to be waiting for you at the top of the tower?
Over Afternoon Tea in the Pump Room
Pop the question over afternoon tea in the Pump Room and be transported back to an era of elegance and social intrigue. The Pump Room played a pivotal part in Georgian Bath. Mentioned on several occasions in Jane Austen's novels, this was the place to see and be seen. Even today, it is a genteel meeting place where visitors can enjoy an afternoon tea or Bath Bun accompanied by the Pump Room Trio.
