Ryanair have revealed the London Eye as the most popular marriage proposal location in Europe.

Juliet’s Balcony in Verona, home of Shakespeare’s tragic love story, took second place while Seville’s Plaza De Espana, where movies such as Star Wars and Lawrence of Arabia were shot, took third place in the list of most popular spots in Europe to pop the question. The list featured some old favourite spots such as the Eiffel Tower and the Spanish Steps in Rome but also some new and emerging locations such as Germany’s Schwerin Castle and the Charles Bridge in Prague.
