As good as you think

Everyone know what it is, so nothing to add! On this visit the queues were terrible, views were absolutely incredible. Worth doing again however many times you've been on.

I think is really expensive for what it's. I didn't enjoy much, the view is spectacular but you can't appreciate because you don't have time to know were the other important buildings are. Staff not friendly, busy line, they push you like a sheep inside each capsules. The ticket office is pack, we bought the tickets online, but are vouchers,... More

There are better views, and more interesting things to do in London, but the eye is quick and easy for all. This isn't something to build a day around, or to make sure you don't miss. Tip: spread your group among pods so you can take pictures of each other

Went to the London Eye at 7pm in the middle of the week in August. Was expecting to queue, but we were in our pod within 10 minutes. The staff were very helpful and seemed well organised. The ride was faultless and looking at all of the fantastic buildings and the history below us, made you understand why so many... More

Although it is a fact that it will be crowded, it is worth every minute! Stunning views of the city below.

The London eye is the one of the paces where everyone should go when they visit London. I did it last year and it costed me £25 per person. We visited during the week when it is less busy! The most suitable time is from Monday to Thursday when there are less tourists. The view is amazing and we spent... More

The london eye experience was really good- amazing views etc. The only criticism I can provide from my experience, was that people working at entry points were rude- people working in the tourism industry need to have more tolerance.

The view of London and Champagne too, on the London Eye. The view is fantastic. U able to see the major tourist attraction up in air. On the Champagne Experience U have a personal host who accompanies U on the fast track entry and receive a chilled glass of champagne on your 30 minute ride.

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
