Where to propose in Edinburgh
Edinburgh is a city rich in history and is Scotland’s capital. It features a mediaeval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings beneath the hill upon which the castle sits.
With so much history to absorb, restaurants to enjoy, and beautiful sights to see, Edinburgh is the perfect place to pop the question. Here are our top three spots to propose in Edinburgh.
1. Old Town
For history buffs and fantasy fans alike, the picturesque streets of Edinburgh’s Old Town make the perfect place to go down on one knee. Whether they’re a fan of a certain boy wizard or just love to soak in the culture, the ancient streets ooze charm and romance. Head up to Edinburgh Castle’s Esplanade for gorgeous views over the city or Jean Brodies Steps at The Vennel for some Instagram-worthy photos before popping the question.
2. Dunbar’s Close
This quiet garden off of the Royal Mile is the perfect quiet spot for couples looking for a proposal on the quiet side. This serene 17th-century-style garden allows you to leave behind the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile and enjoy a canopy of lush trees and an elegant garden divided into eight distinct sections. Take a moment to soak in the tranquillity before getting down on one knee.
3. The Pompadour restaurant
Boasting a range of delectable dishes in a fine dining atmosphere, treat your loved one to a meal like no other at The Pompadour. This upscale restaurant with views of Edinburgh Castle offers unique fare that showcases the best of land and sea in a sensory experience.
Pop the bubbly before popping the question during a sensational meal like no other.
Is travelling in Edinburgh with an expensive jewellery item safe?
Just like when you are shopping in any other large city, carrying an expensive item can pose a certain level of risk, so it’s best to be discreet. Never leave valuables visible to pickpockets and don’t leave bags unattended anywhere. If you feel uncertain about how safe your purchase is, store your Austen & Blake bag inside a backpack or other, opaque bag to keep your valuables as safe as possible.
