It's ok but looking out to sea doesn't offer much. We went round in the day time, it might be prettier at night but the location of the wheel is not that great, it would be better in a higher place.

I went on the wheel in late September. I enjoyed a VIP Champagne experience, the capsule was spacious and had the added benefit of a see through glass bottom. The views were amazing over Brighton and the coastline. The added commentary was informative, it was also good that you could mute it once you had had enough. The staff were... More

We went on the wheel on the most glorious sunny day. the views over the Brighton Area are stunning and we thoroughly recommend it. The staff are great with taking your pictures etc, there is nothing bad to say about it, a great experience. Not expensive but family tickets are the best value.

As a local i have been on this once, the views are brilliant especially when the sun is setting but is expensive for a few 'spins'. Can't complain that it isn't a great place to bring family who want the tour of brighton.

We went on the Brighton Wheel in the summer and the views were great. The staff were very friendly and take a few photos of you. Pros: - Good for something different to do - Brilliant view of Brighton - Photos taken as you go round Cons: - Expensive for only going round three times. - Photos are expensive In... More

Well it's not London Eve by any stretch of the imagination but it's a great view of Brighton on a sunny day. The capsules are compact with seating, you can feel the elements a little more so it's a bit more exciting and fun especially when there's someone with you that doesn't really like heights. It's ok if you've got... More

I took my hubby up on the wheel as a birthday treat, so glad we did, the views from the top are fantastic! We decided to go late afternoon and the sunset was brilliant, well worth the £8 each adult and it was good value as far as I was concerned. The "on board" commentary was really helpful as well......would... More

We visited Brighton on a sunny day in August, and it was crowded with people. It was extremely hard to find parking sny where close to the pier. We took a ride on the Brighton Wheel which has a commentary on all the sights you can see as you go around. We were lucky enough to have a capsule to... More

A nice addition to our day out in Brighton and perhaps the highest view you can easily get to especially while at the seafront. Little queue and an easy trip with the minimum three rotations being a big plus and making it more worthwhile, we ended up getting four and stopping at the top as people got on and off... More

On a whim, we decided to go on the Brighton Wheel on a sunny late November day and were not disappointed. Very good value for money (it was £8 for an adult) with four slow rotations and spectacular views out to sea and back in towards Brighton. Good commentary explaining what was where and the capsules were clean and comfortable.
