I thought it would be pointless as the sea is on the left and little old Brighton on the right but, actually, it was quite thrilling seeing Brighton from up high looking at the mini Pavilion and all the little people on the beach. A bit pricey but worth a go for the thrills.

I only went on this as it was free through work, don't pay to go on it. There's not a lot to see that you won;t see on the new tower anyway!

Not bad. I thought it was cheap and fun. My toddler was quite bored. The audio was a bit annoying, and we had 5 revolutions. We didn't buy the photos they took, as we had better ones. Overall, it was a good experience. Nothing out of this world, but it was fun.

This is great for anyone wanting to get a birds eye view of Brighton. The day was sunny, with no clouds and I took some amazing photos of the beach, pier and city from all heights of the wheel. 3 revolutions are needed as there are lots of things to look out for. The commentary is very informative. Would definitely... More

I am not keen on heights, my friend thinks the higher the better but we both decided it would be silly if we did not go on it. The kids were keen and so a family ticket later we were in the (very short) queue. We got our own little pod and we all agreed that it was a really... More

I attended Brighton Wheel as a VIP corporate guest. It was disappointing. On arrival we were presented, but not really served, with some fizz in the VIP tent. The uninterested bar attendant filled all the glasses up and left them to warm up on one of the hottest days of the year. There was also a mysterious black VIP pod,... More

We were on a four day stay of Brighton and decided while we were doing the whole ocean prominade thing we may as well take a ride. We used the ride on the wheel to take some pictures up and down the beach as well as overlooking the city. They advertise a minimum of 3 revolutions and that is exactly... More

Too expensive at £8 per head. Three revolutions of the same horizon - sea one side and a limited Brighton view on the other. Dirty pod windows which spoil any photographs Plus, pesky photographers who nag to have your photo taken for the print/photo key fob combo. Save your money and see the coastal views just as well from Marine... More
