Took a trip on the wheel which was a great way to see extensive views across the city, it was really great going on the wheel at sunset. You get three relatively quick rotations which although meant we saw a lot it felt like quite a short experience for the money

We went for the VIP champagne experience. The wheel ride gives you three rotations so doesn't last long but the views of Brighton and the coast are excellent on a good day.

took my family on the wheel on a day out, 7 of us in the same pod and had our photo taken together before going up. The ride was slow and smooth and an informative voice over telling you about the sights as we rotated. For the cost of a ticket i thought it really good value and a memorable... More

Myself, my wife and our two year old son came down to Brighton beach for a nice walk and a look around. We had a nice walk along the seafront looking in the little shops on the lower promenade, then I decided we should all do something to celebrate my birthday sp we decided to go on the Brighton wheel,...

Had to try out the wheel on our first trip to Brighton. It was an overcast and rainy day but it didn't quash our enthusiasm to take a look at the views. As stated by previous reviewers, the rotation of the wheel could have been a bit slower but saying that, we did go round 4 times. Although we did... More

Family of four = £24 for three rotations - and eaxh rotation is like a trip round Brands Hatch! A great idea - but clearly being used as a cash cow to suck money out of tourists. Sorry - but true.

The views from the wheel are fantastic and they give you a real feel for Brighton with excellent views of the Pier, the Pavilion and the Volks railway. Its about £8 each but we went round 4 times which made is quite fed up with the Steve Coogan commentary!

Went on the wheel on a lovely sunny day, was ok but not really much to look at, quite expensive , although we did go round three times, only thing was grateful for was that we had a sit down, chance to rest our feet having walked all around Brighton,

We were visiting Brighton for a couple of days and couldn't leave without having a ride on the Brighton Wheel, it was a bit pricey but we had lots of fun and enjoyed the commentary. There is a lovely pack of photos available at the end but again a bit pricey.

Its a big wheel. Don't expect fireworks, you get a good view all around Brighton which is nice on a clear day. £8 per adult is less than 2 pints of beer so ok price just do not buy the souvenir pack for £20.00!! For basically a key ring and fridge magnet.
