To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the lastminute.com London Eye is offering guests the unique opportunity to step back in time to the 1950s and experience Coronation Day, while enjoying the Queen’s favourite tipple 135m in the air.
Honouring Her Majesty, the exclusive pod takes the form of a classic British pub. Dubbed ‘The Queen’s Head’, the time capsule places guests inside a 1950s pub on the day Elizabeth II ascended to the throne. The sky-high pub will be bedecked with vintage bunting and decor, authentic royal memorabilia from the big day, a photo gallery showcasing the Queen’s years in service and a traditional pub dartboard.
To ensure the celebrations are fit for the Queen herself, guests will be served a choice of Beefeater Gin and Dubonnet-based cocktails, widely known to be our monarch’s tipple of choice. The menu features the aptly-named Regal Spritz – a strawberry pink gin, Dubonnet and prosecco-infused glass of bubbles – and Royal Delight – a full-bodied signature serve featuring gin, Dubonnet and Italian Bitter Aperitivo, with a twist of orange. Both expertly crafted drinks make for the perfect accompaniment to the Jubilee celebrations and breath-taking views.
Imran Tauqir, General Manager at the lastminute.com London Eye, said: “We’re inviting people to step back in time to Coronation Day and party like it’s the 1950s again this Jubilee! From one iconic London institution to another, we’ve pulled out all the stops to pay homage to our longest reigning monarch. Guests will be transported back to the 1950s with a glass of HRH’s favourite drink in hand, raising a toast as they sail 443ft above her Buckingham Palace home.”
‘The Queen’s Head’ Jubilee time capsule will run from 27th May until 4th September, from 12pm-5pm on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets cost £60 per person and include two drinks plus fast track boarding. For further information and to book tickets*, visit https://www.londoneye.com/
