I’d use the lesser known for about half. The people who are really curious will be interested, and the others will be satisfied that they know what’s going on.

I say it’s your wedding and you should use what is significant to the two of you – it’s not about what is significant or easy for the guests.

I mean, would you choose your first song based on weather or not most people there will know it?

Eat a meal only because you’re sure most have had it?

I say make them the way you wanted, people will love it! No one will say "You know I really liked the reception but I just don’t get that photo thing"

You’ll have the word "London Eye" on it so they can find it if they don’t actually know what it is. 

Plus I think he’s underestimating your guests – I know the london Eye, Lombard Street, Arch….Pier 39 even….I haven’t been to all of these places and I would still call them "common" or "well known"

I say it sounds like a great idea because it will get people moving and asking questions about sights they may not immediately recognize.  And of course the best part is that it is significant for you.  Love it!

I agree with Sweeney2Be.  Plus you will have a photo of the location to help if they haven’t heard of it.  Maybe add a description/fact about the place on the back of the card?  Or on the table? 

i.e. "The Arc de Triomphe is a monument in Paris, France that stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle, also known as the Place de l’Étoile (Star Square). It is at the western end of the Champs-Élysées. The arch honours those who fought for France, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars. On the inside and the top of the arc there are all of the names of generals and wars fought. Underneath there is the tomb of the unknown soldier."  -From Wikipedia

Maybe you can put a little outline/stencil/silhouette on the place card that can be matched with the table card. Just a thought.
