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.

  1. Really? They really eliminated the number 13 from the capsules? Who says only folks in the east are superstitious! LOL

  2. Hmmm, we’ll have to think about that. We are just wondering about places like HK and all where 14 sounds bad…do they then eliminate 13 and 14? LOL

  3. Hahaha! I didn’t know that – not been to HK. (-yet….) Maybe it’s only western speaking countries that are superstitious about 13! Will have to research that fact!
