Eggsellent Easter at The London Eye
09 Mar 2012
This Easter, The London Eye is inviting guests to London’s most iconic landmark to join in the fun with this year’s free* on-site Easter arts and crafts activities.
From Friday 6th to Monday 9th April, families can don their creative caps and get involved in the London Eye’s Easter activities.
Children can get busy with a number of crafts from decorating papier mache eggs, Easter animal masks, flowers or chicks. A host of arts materials and a splash of imagination will ensure the Easter creations are brought to life to be taken home and cherished as Easter keepsakes.
In addition, families can join in the ultimate egg decorating egg-stravaganza at The London Eye. Five giant white eggs will be installed on the London Eye’s landscape from Friday 31st March to Sunday 15th April when everyone will be invited to take part in transforming them into egg-stravagant and colourful Easter eggs.
All guests to the South Bank and the London Eye landscape can pick up free multi-coloured stickers in a range of sizes to fix onto the enormous eggs, so that they can enjoy being part of the London Eye’s first collective egg decoration.
For those who wish to steer clear of glue and glitter, visitors can sit on the top deck of the London Eye River Cruise and appreciate the spring sunshine whilst on the 40 minute cruise on the River Thames. With fascinating live commentary that brings the city to life, guests can enjoy the warm Easter breeze, which offers the opportunity to experience London’s South Bank from a different perspective.
Having taken in the spectacular views of London on the river cruise, guests can also indulge in some springtime splendour with the Afternoon Tea Capsule on The London Eye. A perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the capital, the Afternoon Tea Capsule is ideal for families and groups of friends who want to grasp London’s panoramic views from 135 metres above the city.
The Afternoon Tea Capsule includes a variety of delicious sandwiches, freshly baked scones and scrumptious cakes, served by the host with a selection of teas, coffee and fruit juices.
For those who have yet to visit The London Eye in 2012, they will find a new in-capsule experience aboard the London Eye. Capsules are now complete with state of the art Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 devices, displaying bespoke content.
The new interactive touch screen guides enhance the guest experience as they take in the crisp springtime views from the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel. It provides a more interactive way to take in the capital’s best sights and is available as part of the standard ticket price.
Features include key information on landmarks that can be seen from the London Eye as well as a 3D view of each sight, further bringing it to life before the visitors’ eyes. Innovative, 360 degree non-stop-24-hour filming has granted The London Eye and its guests the first ever multi-dimensional views of the spectacular sights of the capital.
