With 2016 being a leap year, the minds of many may be turning to romance and potentially popping the big question in the near future. An increasingly popular way of proposing to the one you love is to combine it with a getaway – making the big moment even more unforgettable. Take a look through Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s destinations page for some inspiration and read on for some of our favourite romantic proposal locations.

New York

The Big Apple is home to dozens of world famous landmarks, making the possibilities for proposals virtually endless. Fancy getting down on one knee at the top of the Empire State Building? Or how about during a romantic picnic or horse-drawn ride in Central Park? If you want to combine your proposal with the purchase of an engagement ring then there are few places more iconic than Tiffany’s, and what could be more romantic than to pop the question surrounded by the stunning views on the Staten Island Ferry? You can fly to New York from Liverpool with Aer Lingus, and take advantage of the US Customs Pre-Clearance facility during your short stopover at Dublin.

Belfast

Another destination increasing in popularity as a short romantic getaway is Belfast. This beautiful city really does have something for everyone, with beautiful and historical sights to see, a thriving nightlife and of course, Belfast and surrounding areas are the stunning setting for much of the hit TV show, Game of Thrones. As a setting for a romantic proposal, Belfast offers a young and vibrant feel, with an impressive array of high quality restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs, or lush and striking countryside if that is more your style.
