Good but altogether too short trip. Got four or five revolutions and they only guarantee three, so happy with that. Thought we could have had more revolutions as the sun went down because people had started to think out and not many cars were occupied. The commentary was good, if somewhat competitive. Views were impressive. One tip to the operators... More

At £8 a go, I thought it was a little expensive but the views from the wheel are amazing. The commentary is both informative and amusing. I've learnt a few historical surroundings thanks to Steve. The pod itself is well air conditioned and clean, and 3 or 4 turns round is enough time to soak up every angle. Extra beautiful... More

An enjoyable ride giving views over Brighton and its surrounds. Unfortunately our capsule didn't get the commentary so that took away some of the interest, but we still found it worth doing.

As it was our first visit to Brighton we thought we'd go on the wheel so we could see more of the city as we were only around for 3 days and i'm glad we did! It was one of the highlights to our trip. The staff were alright, the photographer guy was really friendly and welcoming though. We went... More

One of the best value for money rides I've been on! Terrific ride with at least three revolutions and a wonderful commentary! Friendly staff and clean and comfortable. Excellent views across Brighton and the Pier.

Brighton from a different perspective - and you get to see the view three times round. The staff were friendly. On an October Sunday morning there was no queue. it costs £8 per adult. The commentary is good. Well worth a visit.

Although the wheel is enjoyable it is not as good as we had hoped. The pods seat 4, we had a VIP pod which is quite nice with leather seats, cup holders and a table. The floor is clear Perspex but you can't really see through it as its all scuffed up. If you pay for the VIP experience you... More

I booked a VIP Experience for my boyfriend and I. After booking online I called to check timings and I was advised that we can turn up any time as long as it is by the last rotation. I checked at it said 11pm. I thought great we can go for dinner and then go on the wheel. We turned... More
