Last visit to London with the kids we decided we didn't have enough time, but regretted it for years as we saw glimpses of it in the news, etc. so we were SURE to include it in an even shorter trip this year even though we went without the kids. The good: very organized, esp in an area that's heavily... More

The London Eye is slow moving ferris wheel (takes 30 minutes to go around) that offers great views of London. That's the good part. What you really get for 20 plus pounds per person is a half hour with the whinest, bratiest children, incompetent parents, and rudest tourists in London. Trapped for 30 long minutes with the scourge of humanity... More

This was a great experience, I only wish you could take a few extra runs for the ticket:) Beautiful place to observe the city and take photographs. The line at around 5pm was just a couple of people. I will go there again if I could.

Was very nervous but determined to take in the views of London at night time. I was not disappointed! What an excellent way to get your bearings and see the city lit up. Helpful staff at every stage of the process from collecting tickets to embarking on the pods.

Took my three kids to the London eye today. Queued in the fast track ticket office. Ticket prices were on show and my maths worked out it would be £65 for the four of us based on the prices quoted. Turned out price was £128 with adult and child prices the same. I regret not walking away immediately. Felt completely... More

I'm sure I am not the first to say go on a clear day. Luckily for us our 6 visits in the Eye were good clear days. You can really have your breath removed from your body with the gorgeous views. It's money well spent and it doesn't seem to take long to queue up. Plenty to keep you occupied... More

Having purchased our tickets online, we still had to queue for about 20 mins to collect them. We went to see the short 4D film before we went on the London eye. As its shown every 5 mins, there was no queuing and we went straight in. It was very good, we enjoyed it. Then we queued outside to go... More

We were undecided whether we wanted to go on the London Eye, fearing it was a "tourist trap". We've been on the "Wheel" in Myrtle Beach and found it pretty tame and unexciting. After reading the mostly positive reviews on Trip Advisor, my husband asked a co-worker who is a native of England, expecting him to tell us to skip... More
