I have to say that for 25.00 family ticket the wheel was a bit of a disappointment. The view though was fantastic but I was not impressed by the movement of the pod itself. For anyone who is slightly nervous about heights but encouraged on this is the only thing u will remember. We went round 7 times and got... More

My husband and I visited Brighton for the bank holiday weekend and going on the wheel was a must for us. Lovely views of the city, beach and pier but I couldn't really make any of the places pointed out in the voiceover. The photos that were took at the wheel weren't amazing but we still bought them :-/

On a sunny day when you can see for miles the Brighton wheel offer an exciting view of Brighton. It was a busy Saturday so there was a lot of people waiting in line, however it only took around 20 minutes for us to get in. Staff were efficient and we had a great time .

For our honeymoon we wanted to do loads of silly touristy things in Brighton and thought the Brighton Wheel should be on that list. If you book online you can get 10% off the ticket too. What was surprising was that there is narration as you go around which is done by Steve Coogan and it's mostly factual stuff with... More

I really enjoyed the views that could be seen from the wheel. Lots of interesting facts commentated as we went round and some lovely photographic opportunities. Would definitely recommend.

My girlfriend and I went on this to pass some time before getting ready for dinner, we paid for the vip which was only £1 or £2 more but meant you got a free drink and to sit in the vip area which was nice on the sunny day and was well worth it, the staff were friendly and the... More

If you have time to kill and the weather's good, go on, be a proper tourist and ride the Brighton Wheel! If you're out with friends, invest in a £10 ticket and enjoy a drink before stepping into the pod. The plastic VIP tent feels a bit cheap, but a cold drink and not having to queue are worth the...

The eye was a great experience and the cost is reasonable. You get 3 revolutions and luckily we got 5. However, the we had this feeling of doom when we departed that we were going to be sold some awful photos, fridge magnet, key ring, post cards. Total cost £20.00. We had to stand and listen to the sales talk... More
