Live in London and not been on the London Eye? Tourist looking for hints on how to make the most of your time here? Then read on as we give five handy tips to help you maximise your London Eye experience.
1.Look out for special events – Why ride on a normal day when there’s so much more on offer. Red Bull’s held events with DJ’s in each pod and there’s been dating events for singles. Currently there’s summer lates which run until 11.30pm on Friday’s until 22nd August.
2.Tasting Capsule – You could spend half an hour in a capsule and amuse yourself with nothing more than the sights of London, which is great. But do you know what’s better? Eating chocolate whilst you’re at it. Do you know what’s even better? Drinking Champagne, yep you heard right. So the next time you need to book a staff party or corporate event why not fill a pod of twenty and get sipping!
3.Pick the right time of day – This is a crucial point. You don’t want to spend time and money and end up getting a mediocre experience. Obviously a clear day is best, but in my mind timing your ride for sunset is a must for perfect #nofilter photos.
4.Book ahead – Although booking ahead removes the ability to pick a perfect clear day, it will save you time and money. No brainer!
5.Combine with a river cruise – If you’re only in London for a short time, or if you’re looking for an immersive tourist day out (cos let’s face it, us Londoner’s take a lot for granted), then why not take advantage of the combined London Eye and River Cruise packages. You may even learn a thing or two from the specialist guides along the way.
