Set against the backdrop of the Pier the Brighton wheel commands a good position. You get three revolutions for your money, and people come off amazed at how far you can see from the highest point. The cars are warm and clean, and the staff don't overcrowd them, so the ride is quite private. The engineering is quite something when... More

It has a lovely view of the city and the sea and very beautiful but it's overpriced for such a short time on the wheel

Nice touch to light it up with the french flag. Otherwise, a nice thing to do if it's not too windy!

A very good experience for 12 pounds and you get 4 or 5 revolutions. Good views of the city and coast line and interesting commentary of the history of Brighton while in the capsule.

Although it was a very windy day the pods hardly rocked in the wind. When we went on the wheel we were the only 2 people in a pod. There are great views form the wheel along to the East, North and West. Good value for money as you get 3 revolutions of the wheel.

Me and my brother had a great time on the wheel. Clear day and very good views. Very good price at only £8 each on the day. It's a fun novelty just like seaside piers. Dont know why some people dont like the wheel but i can only speak from experience. Nice photo opp to boot.

Went on the Brighton Wheel which was silly as my partner and I suffer from vertigo! It seemed like we were on there forever! If you like heights then it's well worth it and the voice over is by Steve Coogan which is a nice touch. Quiet in November but not so quiet in the summer. Give it a go... More
