This winter the EDF Energy London Eye is bringing back Eyeskate, and it promises to be bigger and better than last year. Guests are invited to glide across the ice under the silhouette of London’s most iconic landmark, where they can also opt to experience the London Eye or the London Eye River Cruise to enjoy the best of London’s Christmas offerings.
The Eyeskate rink will open with a breathtaking, free performance of the well-renowned Nutcracker on Ice on Friday 18th November at 4pm. Choreographed and performed by the National Ice Skating Association, this enchanting display will bring a sprinkle of festive charm upon guests to the London Eye and passers-by on the South Bank. As the skaters expertly dazzle the audience to the Sugarplum songs, spectators won’t be able to resist the magical mood.
For an additional flutter of festive frolicking the EDF Energy London Eye will host a Spectacular Skate-Off on Sunday 4th December at 11am. This free-to-enter, open-to-all competition, judged by the head choreographers at the National Ice Skating Association, will see budding ice-skaters competing to win. All those who take part in the challenge will receive a complimentary ticket to the London Eye, but the real prize for the winner is being named the London Eye’s ice-skating champion.
Further in-season indulgences will abound at the EDF Energy London Eye this Christmas, as guests are invited to toast the winter cheer and embrace that festive feeling.
New for this Christmas is the Vinopolis Pommery Champagne Tasting Experience. Guests are invited to sample five elegant Champagnes, as experts from Vinopolis, the top London wine and Champagne tasting venue, guide them through the selection. Take-home notes are also provided, to ensure visitors can impress friends at their own Christmas parties.
Individual Mulled Wine Experiences are also on offer, ideal for small groups, couples or families to enjoy a cosy winter warmer. Alternatively, the Mulled Wine and Mince Pies Private Capsule, allows guests to sip on a warming glass of the season’s favourite beverage and devour delicious mince pies, all in their own private capsule.
For those who like to add a touch of glamour to their Christmas celebrations, the Champagne Capsule is the perfect way to indulge. Guests can relax and enjoy feeling spoiled as the host serves chilled Pommery Brut Royale Champagne with the option to add canapés, nibbles or mince pies.
Perfect for amorous couples, the Mistletoe Cupid’s Capsule provides the ultimate romantic opportunity to take in the stunning skyline and indulge that special someone. This charming treat is made complete with mistletoe, a bottle of Pommery Brut Royal Champagne and a box of luxury Charbonnel et Walker pink Champagne truffles.
