This is a must do for first time visitors to London. Excellent views of the Thames river and surrounding area.

Avoid. The queues are ridiculous and you often get locked into a pod with lots of squalling tourists/children/babies/other people for a claustrophobic twenty minutes. It is a glorified Ferris wheel without very much ventilation and generally sucks.

Our hotel leads right to the eye. While we didn't go on it sure is massive and grand. Has 32 cars that very slowly go 360 degrees.

Lovely trip in the eye seeing all the sights in the area not bad value for money. Can see a load of sites of London. You have enough time for pictures taking. Also the eye gives you loads of information

Really not much to say. Well known and loved attraction. You need to see it at least once. Tickets could be a problem but if you come prepared you will be fine.

It will safe a lot of time. The line is long but moving fast. A different way to enjoy London view. Come before morning is best.

We loved the Eye! It was a great time, and fortunately we had great weather as well. The skip-the-line ticket was definitely money very well spent, as the other line was atrocious. We maybe had to wait a total of 10 minutes from the time...More

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

You go to County Hall (building near the Eye) to collect your attraction tickets. The staff can direct you to which queue to join to collect pre-booked tickets. Early morning and late afternoon are the best times to go to... More

Yes, but I would rather take a hop on hop off trip through the city because it brings you closer to the attractions and if you buy a 24 hour ticket I believe there is a Thames river cruise included which is fantastic! Enjoy... More
