A great way to see Brighton, the beaches and the town.

We enjoyed our visit to the Brighton Wheel, having also done the London eye a couple of times, and the Singapore flyer. It was not too expensive for tickets, the queue was short... read more

8£ is a little much for this somewhat dull ride. Not only do you not see much but the narration of the ride is cheesy. I'm sure there is a lot of interesting history in Brighton that would make this ride a lot more informative and entertaining. I actually had more fun after the ride drinking a super gross coffee...

We enjoyed our visit to the Brighton Wheel, having also done the London eye a couple of times, and the Singapore flyer. It was not too expensive for tickets, the queue was short and fast moving (on a saturday), the capsules seat about 6 people, all seated, no standing, and it acts much like a ferris wheel but enclosed.

We went on a really clear day. The views either side of the wheel were amazing. The staff were helpful. The commentary by Steve Coogan was great, the first time we heard it, but it went on and on all through the trip , we could nearly recite it ourselves by the time we got off the ride! Got lots...

We were in brighton for the day and had never been on this since it was launched.however, as the local council have announced that they will not extend the planning permission for this attraction past May 2016, this seemed a good time to ride. The ride lasts 10 minutes and you get 3 revolutions or turns of the wheel. As... More

One of the most underwhelming, uninteresting and unsatisfying experiences I've ever paid for. It is a very cheap looking thing indeed, inside and out. I feel so sorry for the people who live opposite having to see this pile of metal rotating around their front rooms. I only went on to go with my friends but I didn't think it... More

The speed of the wheel is a little faster than others, so if you are nervous about that kind of thing then maybe take a miss, but otherwise it was very enjoyable. We got to take a lot of great photos and weren't bugged too much by the professional photo people at the end. In the end we had about... More

The pods were quite small but air conditioned which was good. Didn't have to wait too long to get on and got 4 revolutions ( approximately 15 mins) with a commentary from Steve Coogan included. The obligatory photo pack coming off the end was a little overpriced at £20.

I always like looking at buildings and water-bodies from a height, so I make it a point to avail of all such opportunities. The view from Brighton wheel is especially good because of the surrounding sea; looking at blue sparkling water from way above is always a pleasure!

You get some good views from the wheel and the price isn't too bad. They do the usual of trying to get you to buy photos but otherwise no hassles. Wouldn't pay the VIP prices which is nothing more really than having a glass of wine before going on the ride! Enjoyable ride so worth going on.

Enjoyed a ride on the wheel, it is pricey for what it is though. No point going on a foggy, muggy day but nice views on a clear sunny day. Not for those with fear of heights and for the faint hearted.
