"It's worth booking this one in advance..."

Just book, walk ups are too random. Could get lucky, could wait ages.


Kyrstin says

"Sneak up at opening if you don't have a booking"

Get there before it opens and you'll get on instantly if you haven't booked a timed slot

What to expect at The London Eye

Enjoy the London high life with views from 135m up

This iconic part of London’s skyline is located on the South Bank of the river Thames and is the go-to for 360-degree views of the capital. You’ll spot all the big sights – Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s, to name a few – and can see as far as Windsor Castle on a clear day. And provided you’ve got your specs on.

Want a fun fact to impress your companions (or get you points at a pub quiz one day)? The London Eye’s got 32 capsules in total. They’re numbered 1 to 12 and 14 to 33 – so no unlucky 13.

If you're wanting to save a few quid (and see more London hotspots) discover Merlin’s Magical London Pass.

Champagne Experience includes fast-track entry and a chilled glass of bubbly. Want to pop the question in style? Choose the Cupid Pod package in a private pod, complete with a bottle of champers and box of posh chocs – and a guaranteed ‘yes’, if you ask us.
