Beth-rai said: “We chose the Heights of Abraham to get engaged because we’re both outdoorsy people and the Heights has a mixture of everything; beautiful views, places to eat, and something fun.

“It was lovely to be invited back, and we really enjoyed our return visit. We’ll be back again soon.”

The two love birds have set a wedding date for May 2023.

Despite this, the attraction announced that it will be closed due to an amber weather warning put in place by the Met Office this Friday (18 February) because of Storm Eunice.

The Heights of Abraham plans to open as normal on Saturday, February 19.
