Why is Manchester a great place to propose?
Manchester has a lot to offer if you’re planning on proposing. It’s a city rich in history and has recently become a hub of culture, shopping, and dining with plenty of high-end restaurants and shops to visit.
It also features some beautiful architecture and stunning waterscapes - ideal for getting down on one knee. Here are our top 3 spots for proposing in Manchester.
1. Cloud 23
Located on the roof of the Hilton Hotel, one of Manchester’s most iconic buildings, Cloud 23 is a beautiful bar looking over the bustling city centre. Sip on a champagne cocktail in a tranquil atmosphere before declaring your love in front of some of the most stunning views of Manchester.
2. John Rylands Library
For those looking for a quieter and more intimate proposal, we’d recommend giving the John Rylands Library a visit. Opened in 1900, and belonging to the University of Manchester, the secretive-feeling staircases and corridors of this neo-gothic building offers plenty of opportunities to get down on one knee without attracting a lot of attention. Perfect for bookworms or those who don’t want an overly public proposal.
3. Chorlton Water Park
Ideal for couples who love to be active and go on walks together, why not explore the Chorlton Water Park and have a picnic before popping the question? Surrounded by serene nature scenes and the tranquillity of the great outdoors, they’ll have no choice but to say ‘yes’!
Is it safe to travel on the trams with an expensive jewellery item in Manchester?
Just like in any other location, if you have an expensive item on you, it’s best to be discreet. If you feel uncertain, store your Austen & Blake bag inside a backpack or other, opaque shopping bag to keep your valuables as safe as possible.
