Yes it's an expensive tourist trap but we were lucky to go on a clear, sunny day and the views were spectacular.

Hi, I have visited the attraction (tried to) last saturday 22nd April. My friend and I have booked online. Little did we know that we had to wait in long queues to collect the tickets. I have showed the security guy my disability cards and has been very helpful in giving me priority within this queue. Then off to another... More

One of londons major tourist attractions... this massive Ferris wheel or big wheel if you like has been ever popular since it was built for the millennium,at £23 for a standard ride on the eye... or £32 for a day & night pass which gives you a wonderful look down on the lights of london for a 30 minute journey......

Really good, very busy and quite expensive. I would recommend the fast track tickets so you don't wait to long

We were surprised with how quickly the line moved. While we did upgrade to fast pass because the length of the line was intimidating-there was probably no need to. Very efficient in getting people on and off. A great way to see all of London.

We booked this as a cluster ticket (wouldn't recommend). The queues is long but moves fairly fast. Staff are not as helpful or friendly as in most other attraction location but that doesn't detract from the attraction. There is a fast pass entrance were you can pay (a lot) more to get express entry but the views are the same... More

We wanted to skip the queue so got the fast track tickets, 36 pounds per person. Great views from the cabins. Everything went smoothly and they do not pack the cabins too full so there's room to move around and take pictures.

Went on it years ago when it first opened but weather then wasnt good. Massive difference to experience when weather was fine like this. Have a glass of the bubbly stuff at Pommery bar beforehand as well to make it memorable.

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
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.
