The London Eye Review:

The London Eye is a truly unique and colossal attraction that was originally meant to be temporary but has transformed into one of the most popular attractions in London. This popular attraction is an amazing way to see London from a completely different perspective. The capsules move slowly all the way around the wheel so you can see everything in just enough detail. Your journey takes 30 minutes to complete a full rotation. Look out for all the major sights of London as most are clearly visible. This is suitable for everyone and can kids can be seen watching in amazement as they get 135 metres up in the sky.

All the capsules are fitted with seating as well as air conditioning inside which is especially brilliant if it’s a hot day. There are also two brilliant photo opportunities, you can have a picture in the queue and inside the capsule towards the end of the ride. In the capsule be sure to stand in the designated photo zone to get a good picture.

London Eye Review

Also included in your ticket is the 4D cinema experience. It involves a live-action 3D film combined with immersive sensory effects to amaze everyone. You can visit this either before or after your London Eye experience. The Eye itself is a spectacular and mesmerising sight. Around the London Eye is a pleasant place to walk along and the small park area is great for a few minutes to relax. The London Eye generally opens daily at 10 or 11 am which is the best time to visit as its less busy. Closing times vary but generally, it closes 6 or 8 pm. Ticket prices start from £23.40 online, on the day tickets start at £27. At peak times queues can be really long so be sure to get Fast Track tickets to skip the lines and reduce your wait time significantly. So if you don’t want to spend a long time waiting in the queue, you can book at the Fast Track tickets for a small extra price but it is definitely worth it. There are also different VIP experiences and private capsule hiring if you fancy a bit of luxury.

Book your tickets here to visit one of the best attractions in the UK!
