These are the top places to propose in Liverpool in 2019

Whether you’re waiting for Valentine’s Day, NYE or a stunning scouse sunset, these are the most romantic places to propose on Merseyside.

When it comes to popping the question you’ve got to get the setting right and if you live in Merseyside, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to romantic locations. The region enjoys stunning sunsets over on the Wirral, views as far as North Wales from our beaches and an entire, bustling city lit up with twinkly lights, how’s that for the perfect backdrop?

If you’re planning to surprise the one you love this year, take a look at our top 12 most romantic places to ask ‘Will You Marry Me’ in 2019. Ps – if he/she says yes, send us your proposal pics @TheGuideLpool, we love a good soppy story!

Liverpool Waterfront

Views across the river, the calm waters of the Royal Albert Dock and thousands of declarations of love, what better destination to pop the questions than on the waterfront surrounded by love locks. Albert Dock event listings here.

4 – All Aboard, Mersey Ferries

We’re all about the setting when it comes to your memorable moment, and with the city standing tall and graceful behind you, why not choose a Mersey Ferry cruise to propose? You might even get to honk the Ferry horn in celebration! Ferry schedules here.

Pick a fine weather day and stroll hand in hand to the end of Southport Pier for a beautiful spot to get down on bended knee. Ask a mate to hang back a little while and capture the moment with a picture (if that’s not too creepy). More info on visiting Southport in 2019 here. 

8 – Aintree Racecourse

We hear on the grapevine that the team at The Jockey Club at Aintree Racecourse are a soppy bunch too and love a good personalised message on the big screens. Why not back a winner and get your proposal on the course or the days race card? Find out more here. 

9 – With the Power of Gospel, Alma De Cuba

Former St Peter’s Church, Alma De Cuba runs a Gospel Sunday Lunch every week and we can’t think of a more fitting soundtrack to being in love. Fabulous food, beautiful setting and love is in the air. Bookings here. 

10 – St. George’s Hall

Pop the question with our most iconic and stunning building behind you? Lit up beautifully at night or you could even take your fiancee to be inside the Great Hall and have your big moment surrounded by utter beauty. More info here.

11 – The Wild Card, Bongo’s Bingo

If you’re a pair of mad heads who love nothing more than dancing on the tables, showering each other in Coco Pops and having a ball, why not swap your diamond for a Henry Hoover, ask Slutty Sue to be bridesmaid and get Johnny himself to help you pop the question!? Bongo’s Bingo event listing for 2019 here.
