Time was when you would wait hours to go on. These days you can pretty well turn up during the week and you are on within 20 minutes. Views are spectacular especially on a clear day and the staff are affable,

It's an experience that has to be done at least once in a lifetime but make sure you check the weather conditions to get the best view possible from the top

Had visited this attraction a few years ago also and loved it, this time I got to experience it at nightfall - about 6.30PM on a dark winter evening. Magical, the view of city all lit up is awesome and the queue was less than 10 mins long. Definitely recommend.

Great revolving unobstructed view of London. Lots of room in each eye. Takes about 30 minutes for one revolution. A bit unnerving for those who do not like heights. Well worth the price.

This may be one of the best sites in all of London if you can catch a sunny day. We happened to be in the area and decided last minute to ride the eye. Tickets are not that cheap but worth the view as long as the sky is clear. Once you get your ticket, you get into the pod... More

We went at night so the view is different to what you would see during the day, lovely to see over the city. We had to queue for a while but it didn't take too long. The trip isn't that long but still worth it

The London Eye is a fantastic way to gain your bearings in London. Set on the South Bank, it's a great stop to soak in the views before carrying on to one of the many restaurants or bars. Personally, this is great to double up with a visit to Skylon and if you are in London during when the stalls... More

I really enjoyed coming here and it is good value for money and in all fairness they do move the queues along quite quickly so don't be put off by the queues.

I wouldn't recommend doing it if your... More

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.
