Time Out Eye-Opener: Storytime on the London Eye

Hands up if you’re a Londoner and not been on the Coca-Cola London Eye. Chances are, if you’re a Londoner, you would most probably have been there, done that. However, my husband, S is one of them. He’s been living in London for over 20 years! That’s longer than the London eye has been around, which co-incidently also celebrates it’s 20th anniversary this year. Yesterday, we were invited to experience the London Eye like no other!

Time Out Eye-Opener on the London Eye. Experience The Coca-Cola London Eye like never before! Time Out arranged some unique activities in this iconic London attraction to celebrate our city and we were there to experience it.

Time Out Eye-Opener experience for little ones

In collaboration with Time Out, the team brought out a series of events in June aptly named “Time Out’s Eye-opener”. So if you visited London this month and happened to pass by clocking people in downward dog (yoga), or dressed up in drag, then let me re-assure you that this doesn’t happen very often. I, of course had to accompany my little boy there as the first attraction he recognised in London was The Eye. Yoga and drag didn’t seem too fitting for a 3 year old. So it was brilliant that the team at Time Out lined up amazing storytellers and performers especially for 0-3 year olds! The story time session by Vanessa Woolf and George Hoyle was based around music and sensory interaction combined with interesting tales inspired by London legends.

Our Special Journey

Our journey started at the London Eye VIP section, where there was a dedicated space to park our strollers. Personally, I think the best part of any parent’s experience at tourist attarctions is queue jumping! The lines for the London Eye are ridiculously long on any given day. Therefore I was super grateful our experience meant we didn’t have to queue for longer than 5 minutes. As we entered our private pod, we were invited to sit around our story teller or just enjoy the ride with our little ones. Our story of the day was the adorable Town Mouse and Country Mouse. There were puppets, bubbles, squeaky toys and drums coupled with sing-a-longs and the beautiful landscape of London around us.

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The face on #JasperBean when I told him the session had finished:
