Are you going to be proposing to your Lancashire lass or lad? Or thinking of proposing when you’re visiting our beautiful county? We love to see it.
Lancashire is a great place to propose marriage because there’s so much choice. Striking scenes and historical landmarks are dotted all over the Red Rose county, making it a splendid place to confess your all consuming, unwavering love for your special person.
When you’re considering proposing, you’re going to have a lot running through your mind. To take some of the pressure from your shoulders, we’re going to be talking you through 5 excellent engagement spots in Lancashire.
A Morecambe Bay proposal is devilishly romantic.
Morecambe Bay offers the most gorgeous sunsets at any time of the year. You can choose to propose on the promenade, or go down a little further to the Heysham cliffs where it’s quieter.
This would be a truly beautiful place for a Lancashire proposal. Plus, you can share a romantic chippy tea at the prom after they say yes. What’s more brilliantly Lancastrian than that?
Tip: Aim for a clear day with little wind.
The Singing Ringing Tree
Have you heard of the Singing Ringing Tree? You’ll find it in Burnley.
It’s a sound sculpture made by Mike Tonkin and Anna Liu. The sculpture itself is made of metal tubes, arranged to look like a tree. When the wind blows through the tubes, it creates a lovely melody.
The Singing Ringing Tree is in the Pennine hill range and from there you’ll get gorgeous views of Burnley and the surrounding countryside.
This would be a lovely place to ask that all-important question. But be aware that The Singing Ringing Tree does attract crowds, so you might want to go earlier or later in the day – unless you don’t mind an audience!
Address: Crown Point Rd, Burnley BB11 3RL
Restaurant proposals aren’t for everyone, we get that. But if your partner might like more of a public display of affection, there’s no better restaurant to pop the question in than the award-winning Northcote.
Northcote sits right on the edge of the Ribble Valley in Blackburn. It’s a Michelin Star restaurant run by Lisa Goodwin-Allen and her team. The restaurant offers a phenomenal, changing menu and you can expect excellent food and service every time.
There’s also a luxury hotel at Northcote where you can treat your love to a romantic overnight stay.
Address: Northcote Rd, Langho, Blackburn BB6 8BE
If you want to get engaged in Lancashire, this one really hits the mark.
An oldie but a goodie, pulling off a Blackpool Tower proposal could be epic. This iconic venue opened in 1894 and has since been a classic Lancashire landmark, perfect for the scene of a romantic gesture.
There are two ways you can go about this: outside or inside. Outside, you can have Blackpool Tower as a charming backdrop to your proposal. Inside, you can choose to ask your partner to marry you while sharing afternoon tea in the ballroom.
Tip: Blackpool Tower is also a great wedding venue. 😉
Address: Blackpool Tower, Bank Hey Street, Blackpool, GB FY1 4BJ
Another historic building on our list, Lancaster Castle is a striking sight in the heart of Lancaster’s city centre.
Lancaster Castle (a.k.a. John O’Gaunt’s Castle) dates back to 79 AD and has had a fascinating history ever since, from being the home to the Pendle witch trials to being the birthplace of pilates (strange, we know!).
Above all, this is a picturesque building and would make a lovely place to propose. Especially if your partner is a culture vulture.
In 2019, Lancaster Castle was tastefully refurbished, and there’s now a café on-site, so you can fuel yourself up for the big day!
Address: Castle Grove, Lancaster LA1 1YN
