Ready to pop that big question? Here are some romantic places to do so in Sussex

Glyndebourne, near Lewes

A post shared by Glyndebourne (@glyndebourne) on

If music be the food of love… then world-standard opera in a beautiful rural setting, possibly accompanied by a Champagne picnic, can’t fail to win the heart of your beloved.

Brighton Bandstand

Get down on one knee in this gorgeous Art Deco landmark on the seafront. Whether you’re looking over a placid expanse of blue or stamping your feet to ward off the chill, what a great place to start your life as a betrothed couple.

Bodiam Castle, near Robertsbridge

Be the Lord to her Lady at this wonderful moated 14th century castle at the heart of 1066 country.

West Wittering, near Chichester

One of our most beautiful beaches whatever the weather, going down on one knee on the sand should ensure an amazing proposal.

Goodwood, near Chichester

If you’ve picked a winner, a proposal over Champagne and strawberries in the Richmond enclosure should ensure that your horse comes in.
