We bought our ticket as part of the Big Bus Tour and was told it would get us " fast tracked, no standing in line" this was not true, so don't believe that part of the sales pitch. We also bought about 5 tours. I liked the convenience of that, but be sure you have time to use them all.... More

Must visit site in London. Especially in the evening, when city lights are on. Took home some very impressive pictures of London skyline. Cabins are quite big, and London Eye staff limit number of people per cabin, so there's quite enough space to find right spot to take pics. "Smile" cameras automatically take pictures of people in the cabins while... More

We booked a trip on the Eye for my daughter's 10th Birthday and we travelling with a 4 month old baby. We had a fantastic experience and found the boarding staff extremely friendly and helpful. The domes are miles bigger that I expected allowing everyone on board to have a great view of the city. The only issue was the... More

I took family from overseas onto the London Eye. It was a sunny clear day so the views were excellent. There is a recorded guide and touch screens on each side so you know what you are looking at as you go round. I would definitely advise booking in advance and be prepared to queue for around 20mins when you... More

Nice to do once, great family day for all the family. Take the camera and have a bit of knowledge to point things out to the kids. I recommend you book on line as tickets are cheaper and you will get better deals to include other attractions and avoid the long queue. Avoid the shop as a bit expensive. Take... More

I wasn't that impressed, views were ok but was more wowed by the shear size and engineering feat. Queues were long but were continually moving, so not too bad. Thankfully, air conditioned pods but everyone was fighting to take photos.

This is a nice thing to do one time. There were great views once you got to the top half of the ride. Something everyone should do once.
