Views From the London Eye

View from the London Eye

SOAS University of London


The London Eye, known as the Coca-Cola London Eye since 2015, is a huge Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the Thames towering over one of the world's greatest cities from 443 feet above the ground.

Besides usual booking, you can also reserve a private capsule for a half an hour for a group of friends or family and ooh and ahh to your heart's content with no crowd of strangers around. A private capsule is a great place to celebrate an anniversary or birthday. And for a knock-your-socks-off marriage proposal, check out the Proposal Capsule. On bended knee to your honey surrounded by glass and one of the world's spectacular views is an A-list experience and one that can't be forgotten. London Eye's photographer will record the moment for history, and you'll each get a glass of Champagne and a box of pink Champagne truffles.

Here is a collection of views and the special ways you can enjoy the Eye, such as a Champagne flight, as your wedding venue, with a chocolate experience or a river cruise.
