With a wealth of upcoming Christmas and New Year proposal plans set to get underway, online pawnbroker H&T has revealed the most popular destinations to propose.

Based on Instagram hashtags and most liked images, the research sheds light on the places most couples choose to mark their engagement  – or indeed, the places to avoid if you're looking for somewhere more unique.

Following almost two years of lockdowns, rules and restrictions associated with the pandemic, there has been a surge in people looking to pledge their commitment to their significant other.
