In honour of the Queen's Coronation, the London Eye will be hosting a Right Royal Day Out. Renaming one of its capsules in honour of Queen Elizabeth II, the day will start with a naming ceremony that will see a plaque fixed to the capsule. This will be followed by a celebratory picnic on the gardens, renamed the 'Coronation Gardens' for the day. There will also be face painting and a brass band. All you need is a picnic and a blanket to join in the fun.

About London Eye

The London Eye elbowed its way onto the capital's tourist scene as one of the statement pieces to mark the turn of the century (see also The Millennium Bridge) and quickly became a definitive part of the London experience. This spectacularly streamlined riverside wheel stands an impressive 135 meters tall and its sleek, modern, totally see-through glass-pods offer an unrivalled 360-degree view of London and beyond.
