The Most Romantic Places To Propose in Surrey

We’ve rounded up some of the most romantic places to propose in Surrey to your loved one – from areas of outstanding natural beauty to divine hotels, here is some inspiration if you’re ready to make your move…

Painshill Park

Walk hand-in-hand and discover the delightful grounds of Painshill Park in Cobham. Set across a stunning 158 acres of woodland and gardens, why not meander through the winding paths around the sparkling Serpentine Lake and its gorgeous views or discover the Gothic Temple or even the vineyards. There is much to explore and plenty of secret romantic spots to pop the question – from the seclusion of the Crystal Grotto to the hidden hermitage.

Beaverbrook Hotel & Spa

Beaverbrook Hotel in Leatherhead is synonymous with luxury. Steeped in history, the likes of Rudyard Kipling and Winston Churchill have graced Beaverbrook’s vast grounds which have magnificent views across Surrey. Perhaps take a stroll across the estate, and then indulge in his-and-her massages at the superb spa. Head back to your decadent room and share a glass or two of champagne before heading to dinner at The Dining Room to enjoy a sumptuous Japanese gourmet meal. Now perhaps this is the perfect time to get down on one knee?

Polesden Lacey

Back in its heyday, Polesden Lacey was the talk of society. Dame Margaret Greville entertained politicians, royalty and celebrities – throwing lavish parties in her impressive Edwardian home. And it can once again become part of history if you should decide to find a gorgeous nook to propose in. Pack a picnic with champagne and strawberries and head down to the lawn and marvel at the vistas across the vale. Afterwards stroll through the woodland or explore the walled gardens bursting with colour – and where you’ll be sure to find some privacy…

Pennyhill Park and Spa

If you and your partner are looking for the ultimate in relaxation and pampering then Pennyhill Park and Spa really is a must. The award-winning spa is a special retreat that offers up a plethora of gasp-inducing sensory treats from thermal treatments to several pools both inside and out. Their plush rooms offer up true luxury, while Michelin-star dining or an opulent afternoon tea will give you ample opportunity to make your romantic gesture.

Box Hill

For the ultimate views across Surrey Hills – a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, why not take your beloved on a walk across Box Hill? Starting at the pretty Stepping Stones across the Mole River before heading up across open heathland and to the top where you can drink in the countryside across the North Downs. There are so many spots where you can set up a champagne picnic and make your move! And afterwards, celebrate at one of the many local pubs nearby.


Shere in Guilford has a chocolate box tranquility that has earned the quaint village quite a reputation. Not only has it featured in a raft of big blockbuster movies including The Holiday, but it draws in visitors from all around the world because it’s so darn pretty. Wander the winding streets and peruse the shops before heading off to The William Bray Pub or The White Horse for a bite to eat – or if you’re looking for a something a bit more fancy and intimate, then dinner at Kinghams will be perfect for your proposal. Just ask for champagne on ice…
