The famous 450-foot ferris wheel on the South Bank of the London Thames known as the London Eye or the Millennium Wheel, gives a fabulous bird's eye view of London to visitors who are brave enough to ride. The views stretch for 25 miles on a clear day and include views of Windsor and Tunbridge Wells. Up to 25 people can fit in each of the wheel's "capsules." The wheel turns surprisingly slowly - it takes thirty minutes to go round, so there's plenty of time to spot landmarks and take photos. Hours vary by season. Check the website for more details.
I really didnt want to do this, but my group went and I decided to go with them. I am scared of heights, and of course it stopped when we were on the top. But started back up in 2 minutes.
Was glad I went, the most amazing views of the City, would love to do this at night.
Everytime I come to London (which is about every 2 yrs) I "always" ride the Eye! It is never fails to leave me in awe of the beautiful city of London from up in the air! If I couldn't live in the USA I would live in London!
Both the London Eye and the Millennium Wheel, this huge 443-foot wheel on the South Bank of river Thames gives a fabulous bird's eye view of London. The views are simply great and the 4D demonstration before riding the wheel is spectacular. Yes, it was pricey, but the view was amazing! The day we chose was fantastic and the view unbelievable and Credit must be given to those who designed it. - Liton
This next spring will be my third trip to London, and I absolutely plan on taking a ride on the London eye again. So far I've only done it at night time, which was absolutely beautiful seeing Parliament and the city all lit up, but I would definitely like to try it during the day. Price is very affordable, especially considering it takes about 30 minutes to get all the way around. Definitely a must-do in London!
