London Eye

For the best views of the London cityscape, climb aboard this impressive observation wheel and view the great British capital in all its glory.

The London Eye is a great way to view all the sights of the city from one single standpoint. As you ascend this enormous rotating wheel, watch the city unfold at your feet. On a clear day visitors can see as far as Winsor Castle, almost 40 kilometres away.

As the sun sets behind the London skyline, catch some of the best aerial views from the comfort of one of the London eye’s many observation capsules. A standard ticket equates to one full revolution of the wheel. The 30-minute trip gives visitors enough time to savour the sights of London from various angles. Perfect for romantics, sightseers and visitors of all ages.

Since it first opened its doors to the public in 2000, the London eye has become synonymous with the London skyline, featuring in many popular films such as “Harry Potter” and “The Fantastic Four”. Situated on the banks of the River Thames, its futuristic appearance and its ideal location have made it the focus of the city’s New Year celebrations with its magnificent fireworks display.

This attraction still holds the title as Europe’s largest observation wheel, measuring a staggering 135 metres to the highest point. Around 3.5 million visitors step into the comfortable, air conditioned pods each year to view the sights, making it the most popular paid attraction in the whole of the United Kingdom.

Situated on the banks of the River Thames in Jubilee Gardens, the London Eye is a 5 minute walk from Waterloo Underground station and can be accessed on most inner city bus lines. To avoid the long queues, visitors are advised to purchase tickets in advance.
