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.
The London Eye has become a "must do" much like going up the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Empire State Building in New York or the CN Tower in Toronto. As such, I didn't really worry too much about the cost but I certainly didn't think it was a rip off even though I went up with my wife and 4 kids. The views are simply spectacular and there's plenty of time to get lots of good photos. The kids (aged 8 to 15) all thought it was great. I booked online and collected our tickets by swiping my credit card at a ticket machine inside the ticket office - that was very convenient. I'm glad I did it and would definitely recommend it.
It was enjoyable but not worth 15 pound they seriously make their money. You see a lot like westminster etc. however I just thought what a rip off for the tourists we had to wait for longer than expected because soon sad person was getting married. i might have seemed like a good idea at the time but i bet they will look back and think what was the point
Decided to go on the London eye and it was OK. it costs £15 per adult for 30 mins. you can buy a map for £3 so you know what you are looking at! there were no queues and we walked ( jumped) straight on.
It's nice to say we have done it but would probably have been better had we gone at night. Two of our party felt a bit queezy for the entire journey and having to jump on and off while it was moving was a little daunting
I would recommend people to go if they can spare £15, otherwise spend it on the bus tour. i would imagine it is quite expensive for a family.
While being a little on the expensive side it certainly was a real thrill. The day we chose was fantastic and the view unbeleiveable and Credit must be given to those who designed it. they even gave discount for an Australian pensioner card .
I have nothing to dilike about this place. It was a nice sunny day when I went there. That was lucky. You can see almost all of London. It was worth the 10 minute wait. You can't feel it move. It was a very long fun ride. I give it a 10 out of 10!
