Take Your Vows 135 Metres Above London
Every wedding day is special, and the London Eye provides a spectacular setting for your celebration, can you imagine taking your vows 135 metres above London surrounded by all of your friends and family, with the stunning views of the London skyline as your backdrop.
Many people think of the London Eye as a tourist attraction, a lovely place to visit with your family to enjoy a view of London whilst accompanied by 30 other tourists. But make no mistake about it, this iconic wheel is actually a very popular place to engaged and married too!
Love is in the Air
The London Eye has been voted the most romantic location in London, and indeed the UK. Second only in the world to the Eiffel Tower, in fact. Of course, the stately glide through the sky and the breath-taking views play their part, but what else puts this iconic London landmark on top of the list for lovers?
You could just imagine a classic British rom-com reaching its climax in one of the capsules, couldn’t you? But you don’t need any movie magic to add the romance on the London Eye, where the real magic is the experience itself.
Did you know that over 5,000 couples have proposed on the London Eye since it opened in March 2000, and there have been 529 weddings and civil partnership ceremonies? And where there’s romance there are bubbles: on February 14 each year the number of bottles of champagne consumed on the London Eye increases by a whopping 500%.
What is the London Eye?
The London Eye may look like a giant Ferris wheel, but it is, in fact, the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel, which means it’s supported on one side only.
Located on the banks of the River Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, the London Eye dominates London’s skyline, offering visitors 360 degrees of spectacular panoramic views across the capital and beyond from their custom-designed glass capsules.
The views stretch for over 40 kilometres. On a clear day, you can even see Windsor Castle in Berkshire. The sleek, contemporary and simply designed wheel towers over historic landmarks, symbolising everything London is today: a seamless blend of history and modernity.
