The London Eye to mark Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day with poppy light up

Landmark London attraction, the London Eye, will be marking Remembrance Sunday (Nov 8) and Armistice Day (Nov 11) this year by lighting up the capital's skyline with a unique design from sunset until midnight on both days.

The lights on the iconic structure will be changed to red, with a small green segment at the 11 o'clock position, to represent a poppy.  With socially distanced outdoor remembrance events being given the green light to go ahead across the country, the London Eye joins those marking these important moments of remembrance.

“We're proud to be lighting up the city skyline with this special poppy design, throughout these uncertain times it’s more important than ever for everyone to come together and show our gratitude to those that gave so much for us. We hope all of you continue to stay safe and support each other where you can.”

Sunny Jouhal, General Manager at the London Eye

The London Eye has temporarily closed from Thursday November 5th, as a precautionary measure in line with the latest Government guidance and legislation.
