  • At the London Eye, you experience a mesmerizing city view just as the sun is setting. Soar into the sky in one of its spacious glass capsules, leaving the hustle and bustle of the city below. The magnificent look of awe on your partner's face as you crest the apex, the city's jewel-like lights twinkling beneath, will surely be worth every surprise you've planned.

Preparation steps:

  • Firstly, purchase your London Eye tickets in advance online. This will ensure that you will have a capsule ready when you arrive.
  • Ensure to check the gig timings at the Underworld bar so you can time your arrival and departure perfectly. Also, it would be a nice touch to learn about a few rock bands and casually showcase your knowledge to your partner.
  • Ensure you leave the bar in time to get to the London Eye. You wouldn’t want to miss out on the breathtaking views the Eye offers as the sun is setting.

Some tips:

  • As this plan involves a few surprises along the way, make sure your partner enjoys surprises and is not prone to vertigo.
  • Opt for a comfortable and casual outfit. You will be spending time at a rock bar and on the London Eye. Heels are not advisable as walking from the bar to the London Eye might be uncomfortable.
  • If possible, try to get a Capsule on the London Eye just as the sun is beginning to set. The views at this time are truly breathtaking.
