Make time to visit this one. huge gigantic wheel and once u are in it you get to see the entire landscape of London. We stood inside the coaches but would have been better if there were seats inside the coaches. There is just another same thing a shortened form in Derby where we sat and saw the entire Derbyshire...

Had to go on the London Eye, a trip to London would be wasted without having a glimpse of the historic buildings from a higher standpoint! Lots of fun too, not too scary - the carriages move very slowly!

A must do London attraction! We booked our tickets previous to the trip and selected the time we wanted to go. Tickets are cheaper when you buy online prior to visiting. Staff efficient and friendly was barely in the que for long. Amazing views!

Pre booked tickets online to pick up on day, saved time and few pound. Although it was great views and pleasant ride round I definitely found it slightly overpriced even for a standard ticket. Your picture was on offer which I would normally have purchased but at £15 for one print it was a definite no no. On a positive... More

We visited the London Eye in November 2014, and enjoyed the experience so much that we wnet twice (once in daylight, once at night!) Unfortunately, I can't comment on the price as we used the Merlin Annual Pass (however, I doubt we would have gone on twice otherwise!) When we visited, the longest we had to wait was less than...

While London Eye is one of the newest must to see attractions it does not offer that great view you may expect. London is packed with large buildings what block the view even to see things what are nearby. If you are not lucky enough fog or clouds come down below top of the weel, so you really think you...

We queued for around 20 minutes, the staff were pleasant but we didn't have much interaction with them. It was a beautiful clear day so we could see for miles all over London. Definitely the best way to see it all! We spotted Buckingham Palace which we didn't realise was so close so walked over to it afterwards. 4D experience... More

Did this with the grandchildren, it was a clear day I had to sit down while it went over the highest part as I am scared of heights. Excellent experience lovely to see London from above. gave you a better perspective of how big London is Done this once doubt if I would do it again but well worth the... More

decided to take a trip on the London eye. Catch the underground to Waterloo station and it's a short walk. We went during half term so was quite busy. We wish we'd bought our tickets online, probably would have saved us some money. In the end we bought a couple of fast track tickets which included a trip on the... More
