The London Eye, Central London


Champagne date on the London Eye

Since it first popped up in 1999 and opened to the public in 2000, this 443ft tall ferris wheel has had an estimated 30 million people come on board for spectacular 360-degree views of the capital. What was once something that bemused Londoners has now become an important part of London’s skyline. It’s not just a popular tourist attraction, but also a place that celebrates all things love and romance. Not only is the the London Eye one of London’s most popular places for proposing marriage, it’s now fully licensed for weddings too.

Throughout the year there’s a calendar of events ideal for special dates. You can book places on chocolate or wine tastings, have dinner in a capsule, or book the Cupid Capsule, a very romantic (if pricey) option that’s just you and your date, and your own private capsule with champagne and chocolates. Plus there are fun events at Halloween and Christmas, and other organisations like A Curious Invitation run events on the Eye, it’s good to look out for unique experiences on such a London landmark.

Based on London’s South Bank, a place often cited as one of London’s most romantic date locations, it’s been the backdrop for several rom-coms including Four Weddings and a Funeral, Man Up, and About Time. You’ll be in the perfect place after your London Eye date to stroll along the Thames at night, head across Waterloo Bridge for more amazing views, and see where the night takes you.
