I just happened to be passing on a cold evening, needing a little cheering up and thought I'd hop on. 5 or 6 revolutions, you had a good chance to see the lit up streets of Brighton and the beach, just lovely. At £8.00, what a bargain. So sad that the council are not going to allow it to continue... More

A good opportunity to see Brighton from above, especially on a clear, sunny day. However, if you are like me and are scared of heights and suffer vertigo, you might think twice! I spent the first revolution with my eyes closed but soon became a bit braver. the three revolutions turned into five though! There is an emergency bell you... More

Just because every town thinks they need their own wheel to show some greatness doesnt mean its actually great. Annoyingly high prices, mediocre view and annoying staff. Keep your fingers off the VIP experience, its a terrible rip-off with cheap wine from plastic cups and a trip as short as any other. Just dont do it. Better spend your money... More

We popped into Brighton on an errand but made enough time to go up on the wheel as it was a bright sunny day. The £8 ticket price wasn't too bad for Brighton and TBH I was expecting it to be more expensive.You get a minimum of 3 revolutions are views are amazing. Make sure you pick a clear day.... More

Got back from brighton today. The eye was good you couldn't feel you were so high up. Book all tickets online first as you save 10%

We visited Brighton at Christmas, we decided to go on the wheel at night. I pre-booked online and the whole process was very easy. The staff were friendly and our trip on the wheel was very enjoyable. At the end I wanted to buy the souvenir photo, I was ambushed with a whole photo pack, including snow globe and key-rings...

Beware of so called 'professional' photographers before getting into wheel pods. They are unable to fit a group into a shot & are unable to communicate simple words like "move closer". Very disappointing to be given a photo by a member of our group to find that one member was missing & one was cut in half!! Extortionate charges for... More

Visited the Brighton Wheel / Eye / big round thing on the seafront over the Bank Holiday and was extremely impressed! Being an original London Eye veteran, plus a Weymouth Tower and various others around the country, I found this attraction excellent in many ways. Firstly, the price - for a family ticket we paid £25 which was very decent... More

We decided to go the Brighton wheel in the evening instead of during the day and I'm glad we did!! The views were lovely, all the lights around the town were amazing especially the pier it looked great!! It's a bit pricey but I recommend while in Brighton. You do get to go 3/4 times round.
