Sip on a glass of Pommery Brut Royal champagne as you admire London’s most-famous architecture with an unobstructed, 360° view of the city. The next day, take in a performance of Wicked, the hit musical that repurposes the story of The Wizard of Oz from the perspective of the Wicked Witch of the West. Spend the rest of your time in London shopping along Oxford Street and Bond Street and visiting the famous department store of Harrods. At the end of your stay, head to the airport to connect back home.

To really make your London Eye flight sparkle, enjoy a glass of Pommery Brut Royal champagne (non-alcoholic alternative available) served by your host while you relax and enjoy the sublime views of London. Children (18 and under) will also enjoy the experience, and receive a goodie-bag and plus a glass of juice instead of a glass of champagne. Numbers are maximum 25 people per capsule and you'll appreciate the personalized attention from your champagne host. You will also receive a mini guide to help you spot the famous London landmarks including Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. Having a Fast Track ticket allows you to skip the majority of the queue and check in at the Priority desk at County Hall just 15 minutes prior to the visit time booked.

The flight on the London Eye lasts for approximately 30 minutes, the time it takes for the London Eye to revolve completely. All capsules are fully air-conditioned and rotate on a special device designed to keep everyone upright as the wheel makes a slow but progressive revolution. If you wish to see the 4D Experience before your visit, we recommend you arrive 30-40 minutes before your visit time. You will need to return to the Priority Desk 15 minutes before the scheduled visit time. Alternatively visit at your leisure afterwards.

Theatre Ticket - Wicked

Wicked is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, an alternative telling of the 1939 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film The Wizard of Oz and L. Frank Baum's classic 1900 novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The musical is told from the perspective of the witches of the Land of Oz; its plot begins before and continues after Dorothy Gale's arrival in Oz from Kansas.
Wicked tells the story of two unlikely friends, Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Galinda (whose name later changes to Glinda the Good Witch), who struggle through opposing personalities and viewpoints, rivalry over the same love-interest, reactions to the Wizard's corrupt government, and, ultimately, Elphaba's public fall from grace.
