Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
There are three things you can guarantee every Londoner has done. 1) Huffed at a tourist for being a nano-second too slow navigating a tube barrier. 2) Missed their bus stop due to excessive daydreaming, and 3) Been on the London Eye. And while we’ll leave the reasoning behind the first two for you to work out (hint: get more sleep), point three is obvious – living in London and not going on the London Eye would be like living in Antarctica and not owning a coat.
So, been there, done that, right? Nuh-uh. You may have seen the sights, but we at Time Out have got a very good reason for you to give the London Eye another spin. We’ve created Time Out’s Eye-Openers – a series of events taking place on the London Eye designed to bring you even closer to the city. Here’s what’s coming up when the programme kicks off in June.
Yoga and barre
Face it – nobody has ever found their zen sitting in the lotus position while their flatmate noisily made pasta with ‘EastEnders’ turned up to 11. We’re bringing in the peeps from Hackney gym The Refinery to turn a London Eye capsule into a blissful haven of stretchy relaxation, so you can do your sun salutation while admiring the skyline.
Talks and performances
Have you heard the one about the comedian locked in a capsule 135 metres above the Thames? You just might if you head along to one of our talks and performance hosted by genuine London legends. Expect everything from comedy performances and drag acts to serious, life-affirming discussions.
Small caveat here – we take no responsibility for children subsequently demanding all future bedtime stories be delivered within a London landmark. If you’re cool with that, head along for interactive tales steeped in the folklore of the city from master storyteller Vanessa Woolf, among others.
