The Coca-Cola London Eye


Eye Pod

Situated on London’s South Bank, it is within easy walking distance from several London Underground stations: Waterloo, Embankment, Charing Cross and Westminster. 

The 32 capsules of the Eye are symbolic of London’s 32 boroughs and are numbered 1 to 33, eliminating the thirteenth carriage for good luck.  The wheel offers some of the greatest panoramic views of the city, on a good day stretching as far as 40 kilometres. 

It stands 135 metres high and is now the Coca-Cola London Eye and is the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel. The experience showcases breathtaking 360-degree views of the capital and its famous landmarks and has been the number one visitor experience in the city for the past decade.
