With the VIP capsule, we were able to access the VIP lounge where we were offered complimentary drinks prior to boarding the wheel. The view was good, the introduction was clear and comprehensive, and the staff were friendly and professional. It is definitely worth a visit when in Brighton.

We watched so many people going on this wheel. I did not go because I have a fear of heights. But this looked so good. Everybody enjoying themselves. Such a laugh. Watching people faces and enjoying themselves.

We were in Brighton for the Saturday,the sun was shining,the sea was looking like it was the Mediteranean sea,ok the beach would be a bit of a giveaway.But people were enjoying the chance to be beside the sea etc. So we decided as it was my birthday treat we would have a trip on this iconic piece of the Sussex...

Well worth a visit. I booked on the internet and just showed them a code so didn't even have to print anything out. For that for the same price I got a glass of wine and escorted to the "VIP Room" nothing amazingly special but who doesn't like a free upgrade. On to the ride, they say a minimum of... More

Very average ride. Having been on a few now, there is nothing spectacular about this ride. £25 for a capsule i think is a bit steep. Commentary is poor. Was expecting great things from steve coogan but disappointed :(

Until the i360 is built this remains the only Brighton Eye. It does give you great views of the seafront all the way to the Marina and the other way out to Hove. The VIP carriage has a glass floor, but not sure if that's a good thing or not. It's pretty popular at night funnily enough as you can... More

A great attraction for visitors to Brighton. After a romantic stay at the Brighton Hotel my boyfriend and I viewed the Brighton Wheel right opposite the sea. He went up but I decided to watch. It was supervised by a guard and you get allocated a numbered pod which moves slowly all throughout the ride. For just under a tenner... More

I boarded with my Grandson. It was really good. You are guaranteed at least three revolutions...which means you see more. Don't get me wrong It doesn't necessarily have a massive wow factor or be thrilling or exhilarating but it's definitely worth a go. My Grandson enjoyed it. We did it at dusk and the sunset along the beach towards the... More
