A bit pricey, but you get a fantastic view, so I am really glad I did it anyway. The staffs are super friendly. A must do when in Brighton.

Have ridden several of these wheels now and all are pretty much the same. We were given extra rotations but the standout for this was the views. Excellent positioning of this wheel.

Had a lovely ride in the wheel, my husband and I had our own pod, not sure if that's normal or because it wasn't very busy. The pod was clean and we had 5 revolutions. The commentary is humorous and informative.

Fortunatley the weather this April morning was great! Staff very helpful and professional. Short queue, so got straight on with a pod to ourselves, and we had at least 5 rotations. The views are stunning, and I would have been annoyed if we hadn't done this trip. Well worth it.

We visited Sunday morning around 10 o clock and we were the only people on the rotation, staff were very friendly and pleasant. There is commentary by Steve Coogan playing whilst going round but you can turn this off by pressing a button on the ceiling of the capsule should you not want to listen. We enjoyed it, it is...

A group of friends and myself decided to go on the wheel on a rather dull April day just so we could say we have been (!). There was no queue so we got straight on and enjoyed 4 rotations. The wheel offers good views of Brighton and we enjoyed spotting places we had been/stayed in. The views were excellent,... More

The self styled 'wheel of excellence' was a nice enough way to spend some time. We were lucky it was quiet when we went so we got a pod just to the two of us. When it's busy I'd imagine there's a long wait to get on due to the fact each pod has to be manually opened/closed by one... More

There is nothing to see. You either look out at the sea which doesn't change for four rotations; or the Brighton skyline. Oh wait we have no skyline. Brighton is flat with no buildings that are of any interest to look at.

Great view of Brighton from this wonderful wheel. Not good if you suffer from vertigo but worth the price. The pod went round three times so you get to see wonderful views of the beach.
