The London Eye Celebrates a practically perfect moment

The Coca-Cola London Eye celebrated the eagerly awaited return of the world’s most iconic super-nanny to the capital city, ahead of the Mary Poppins Returns European film premiere in London.

The nation’s favourite nanny made a pit stop on top of London’s most iconic landmark - before gliding through the clouds and down to the streets of the nation’s bustling capital city.

The images, captured first thing in the morning, show the film icon’s unmistakable silhouette complete with her trademark umbrella and carpet bag, taking in the London skyline from 135m high above the capital, atop of the London Eye.

Sunny Jouhal, General Manager at the Coca-Cola London Eye said: “With the new film opening next week, we felt this was a fantastic moment for the London Eye to embrace the excitement that this film institution has created for generations past and present. What better way to arrive in London than from London’s best view of the capital…".

Did you know, at 135m, the London Eye is the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel? A feat of design and engineering, it has become the modern symbol representing the capital and a global icon. The experience showcases breath-taking 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. An experience on the London Eye will lift you high enough to see up to 40km and keep you close enough to see the spectacular details of London unfolding below you.
