I was expecting this to be a waste of money, but I actually really enjoyed it. I'm scared of heights so the first time round did nearly give me a panic attack, but the views even on a gray day are stunning. The optional photo package that you can buy is also surprisingly good and includes a fridge magnet, a... More

Remembrance Sunday was a blustery affair on Madeira Drive, in Brighton this year, but we ventured out anyway, as the parade was due to finish or commence from there, so we got our scarves and arms interlocked, battled against the wind. By the time we reached what used to be Terraces, the weather had taken an absolute turn for the... More

the wheel had great views, 3 revolutions gave plenty of time to look around, it charged a decent family rate

some may think you pay a lot but you get great views and go around a few times. air conditioning is especially great in the summer. the only downfall is they try to sell you pictures and books on the history of brighton for stupid money

A bit scary, but gives you a good overview of Brighton and Hove. I prefer to watch it at night when it's lit up with colourful lights. A bit costly as well at eight pounds for 4 turns around. I know some people love this, but for me it was just an average experience.

Luckily I was able to watch my 12 and 14 year old daughters go on the wheel whilst on our day trip to Brighton. I was too scared! They loved it and at £6.50 I thought great value. They went around 4 times and got great views over land and sea. They thoroughly enjoyed it. No queue either considering it... More

Absolutely great views! Price was okay, not too cheap but still reasonable. What annoyed me was the audio guide; it went automatically on and you couldn't turn it off. That is fine, but the annoying part was that it started all over again once it got to the end! So I must've heard the same audio guide like 3 times... More
