Want a free trip on the London Eye after a meal with paired wines? Of course you do!

Are you planning an exclusive event in the next six months? A late summer party, say? Or even the office Christmas party? Or perhaps just a nice get-together for the office? You should definitively look out for this booking incentive from Skylon, then.

The British-leaning restaurant and venue on London’s South Bank (yeah, that means epic river views) is offering a meal paired with wine followed by a trip on the London Eye for you and up to three other people, four in total, if you book an exclusive hire of the restaurant before 31 December 2019.

The offer is only valid on new reservations and you have to quote ‘Iconic Views’ when you enquire.    

Skylon sits within the Royal Festival Hall and the entire north-facing side of the restaurant is covered in floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing for spectacular views of the river and the North Bank. The gigantic and airy dining room is minimal and stylish in that mid-century brutalist style we all love, which – furthermore – mirrors the architecture of the building it resides in.

Divided into three sections, an exclusive event at the restaurant is a breeze. The raised central bar separates the relaxed brasserie from the fine-dining area – use one as a reception area for pre-dinner drinks. Alternatively, the two spaces combined can make for a huge banquet.

The D&D-owned restaurant serves up modern British comfort food – uncomplicated cooking results in high-quality meals using the finest ingredients. It’s always seasonal, so as we’re moving into the autumn and winter, you might expect the likes of butternut squash veloute with chestnuts and crème fraiche; Jerusalem artichoke risotto; roast Pollock with crushed honeyed parsnips and mussel veloute; and spiced crème brulee with pistachio biscotti.

The sweet staff are also a huge plus, delivering reliable service and knowledgeable recommendations. The international wine list is a further draw.
