The London Eye, a colossal Ferris wheel that graces many iconic London vistas, offers an exceptional opportunity to take in breathtaking views rather than delivering a heart-pounding thrill. It revolves slowly, providing an unparalleled bird’s-eye view of London’s South Bank. However, if you have a fear of heights, be forewarned: Once you ascend over 400 feet, the 360-degree panoramic views can be a tad unsettling.
Opinions about the London Eye vary among travelers. Some consider it an absolute must-visit attraction, while others find it somewhat overhyped. Some recent visitors have voiced complaints about the long lines, which can extend to a couple of hours, and the relatively high ticket prices. Nevertheless, many are left in awe of the vistas, particularly those of Parliament and Buckingham Palace. It’s important to note that this ride is not a fast-paced one; a full rotation of the wheel takes at least 30 minutes. Additionally, you have the option to combine a London Eye ride with a guided boat tour.
Standard admission for adults starts at £25.50 (approximately $32), with discounted tickets available for children. There are also various packages available, which may include a boat tour, London Eye ride, or even a private pod experience with sparkling wine, and these come with higher fees. To view the complete range of ticket options or to make online bookings, visit the official London Eye website. Also, be sure to check the website for opening hours, which can vary by season. The London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel, is conveniently located near the Waterloo Tube station, and other nearby stations include Embankment, Westminster, Lambeth North, and Charing Cross.
