RomanceExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Lines peak for sunset flights, but try to avoid stepping into an Eye pod with antsy children.
  • Although each of the 32 capsules can hold up to 25 people, splash out and book a private Cupid's Capsule. You'll have the pod to yourselves, with a host who uncorks a bottle of Pommery Brut Royal Champagne and serves Charbonnel et Walker pink truffles, plus you'll skip any line with priority boarding.
  • Take the plunge from high above the Thames. You and your mate can get married in a private Eye ceremony, for you and up to 19 of your friends, in a capsule trimmed with flowers, champagne, and canapés.
Built for London's millennial celebrations, this immense "observation wheel" quickly emerged as an iconic addition to the city's skyline. A single loop around the 443-foot-high structure takes a leisurely 30 minutes, and on a clear day you'll be rewarded with CinemaScope panoramas up and down the River Thames—London's finest view.
