Top sights in London
Originally built as a temporary structure to mark the millennium, London's magnificent ferris wheel remains one of the city's best-loved attractions to this day. Here are a few other top landmarks to try spotting from its 135-meter peak!
Look north to see Christopher Wren's crowning achievement. St. Paul's Cathedral was the city's tallest building from 1710 to as recently as 1962!
London's sights mostly lie north of the river, but some of its more humble are to the south, such as the iconic Battersea Power Station and the Oval Cricket Ground.
On a clear day you can see as far as Windsor Castle. It's the longest-occupied palace in Europe, and for good reason, too, if it's grand enough to be spotted from 40km away!
"Check the weather forecast before booking your tickets as the best time of day to visit is when London is least foggy. If you're not too bothered about picking out individual sights, then nighttime offers a completely different spectacle!
On most days of the year the ticket office opens at 9:30AM, with the first rotation beginning at 10:00AM. Closing times vary depending on the season, so be sure to check londoneye.com first!"
One full rotation lasts half an hour.
The London Eye is just a short walk from Embankment tube station, and Waterloo and Charing Cross tube and overground stations. It can also be accessed via the number 77, 211, and 381 bus routes.

What people are saying about The London Eye
Really enjoyed our trip to London and our package we purchased. We wanted to do the London Eye and hop on hop off bus - the river cruise was an additional extra thrown in and ended up being the highlight. We ended up walking most of the way around the city, only using the bus twice - both times to go just one stop. Magnificent views from the London Eye - but the cruise was just wonderful. We went from Tower Bridge to Westminster. The guy speaking was really funny and the facts super interesting. The baileys hot chocolate on board also delicious. Would absolutely recommend.
Good tour both the recorded guide and the live guide were informative. Currently not all of the stops are stopped at and the bus is intermittent. We weren't told this on booking. We ended up missing out on some of the things we wanted to see and couldn't get to the stops for pickup in the afternoon so walked back and got the tube to places we wanted.
Good day fellow Globetrotters, I would like to give commendation to London tour and to our guide Chris. The tour guide (Chris) is well knowledgeable about the place and its history. He is also very caring for its clients during the tour. By and large, the rating I could give is 5 out 5. Keep up the good work. Thanks, Patrick
Great value for 11 of us and not one had a negative word to say, we thoroughly enjoyed every moment, Joe the pilot was very capable and friendly and Bill, what can we say, a huge character and genuine and knowledgeable with a great sense of humour. Good luck guys and we will be back again
Was fun, wasnt sure what to expect but was nicely Surprised. I took my 8 year old son and I did think some jokes were a little crude, he on the other hand found them hilarious! My fiancé also enjoyed the dad jokes so it worked out pretty well for us. Defo a fun way to sight see :)
