Off-Topic: London Eye “Lift London” Masterclass Upgrade

Written by:

London Eye Views
In the miserable month that is known as January, I was invited on to the London Eye for one of their “Lift London” masterclasses.  Every year, the London Eye closes for maintenance, and the Powers That Be decided to celebrate the reopening of the Eye with free upgrades for visitors on the reopening day.

The upgrades involved masterclasses with leading industry professionals, so you could enjoy a bit of learning with your sight-seeing during your half hour spin around the wheel.  There were various classes available including a rather impressive yoga class, but obviously that isn’t the one I attended (ha!), instead I spent half an hour talking all things blog with the fabulous Journalist-Come-Blogger, Zoe Griffin.

Zoe, me and Catrin.

Zoe and I were also joined by the fabulously fashionable Catrin from CatrinDarling, and all three of enjoyed a go around the London Eye on one of its first rotations of 2014.

I was surprised as it really wasn’t as scary as I expected it to be, as you barely feel it move and even though you’re extremely high up when you hit the top, you don’t end up overwhelmed with the sheer magnitude of the height as I anticipated might be the case, instead you just have time to take in the beautiful views in comfortable surroundings.

Catrin, Zoe and I.  I hope I'm not as short and fat as this picture suggests.

As you can see from my pictures it was a fairly miserable day – it was January after all – but I still managed to get a few shots that made me realise just how high up I was…thankfully it didn’t feel it at the time! On a sunny day this would be a glorious way to take in the sights, but even on a miserable day like the ones we’ve had recently, it’s still a great way to kick back and check out London from a whole new perspective.  For more info on the London Eye head here – link.
