So, I’ve been to London three times. As my title alluded to, the third time must really be the charm because I finally went on the London Eye this time. This was even the best time to do it! Not only did I finally get to go, but we were able to rent a private capsule for just our group! They usually pack the capsules with 20+ people who pay for individual tickets, but we were able to get just one for the 14 of us interns plus our leaders and a plus one.
Depending on the kind of view you want, you can choose what time you want to rent your capsule. We went at 9:30 pm and I loved it! We got to watch the sunset and see London light up as the sun went down. I thought the time was perfect.
When we finished, it was completely dark outside. There must have also been a prom-like functin going on, because there were girls in gowns everywhere. It was a little annoying to have such big crowds everywhere we went. However, the girls looked like total stunners in their dresses. Those boys have better taken them on some nice dates.
Anyway… Even with all the buildup, this was totally worth it. Everything was better than I could have imagined and I am so happy that I was finally able to go!
