Have a fascinating first date on the London Eye!

Need a unique idea for a romantic rendezvous? The London Eye could be perfect for you!

Looking for an enchanting day out? Fancy doing something you’ve seen every day but never done? Need a unique idea for a romantic rendezvous? The London Eye could be perfect for you!

It’s difficult to imagine the London skyline without the EDF Energy London Eye gracefully turning its 32 pods in continuous rotation. It is also challenging to remember a time before the London Eye but still it turns, in 30 minute rotations, a magnificent feat of engineering that now ranks amongst the best of London’s attractions.

The 32 capsules, one for every London borough, each weigh 10 tons and can carry 25 passengers whilst travelling at a leisurely pace of 26cm per second, which is twice as fast as a tortoise sprinting. The capsules are air-conditioned and seats are provided, although passengers are able to walk around and get a unique view of London, the second highest view point in the entire city. At its zenith, 135 meters from the Southbank floor, passengers can see over 40km in each direction which is as far as Windsor Castle.

Enhancing the experience further this year is the introduction of state of the art Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 devices as interactive touch screen guides designed to enhance the passenger experience as they take in the views. Features include key information on landmarks that can be seen from the London Eye as well as a 3D view of each sight, further bringing it to life before the visitors’ eyes. Innovative, 360 degree non-stop-24-hour filming has granted EDF Energy London Eye guests the first ever multi-dimensional views of the spectacular sights.

Oh, and if we are being politically correct, The London Eye is not a Ferris wheel, it’s the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel! Who cares! It’s a great day out and a great opportunity to see this wonderful city!
