The Basics

A 30-minute ride in one of the 32 glass capsules offers panoramic views, so travelers can spot London highlights such as St Paul's Cathedral and Buckingham Palace from every angle. One rotation takes 30 minutes, with the structure rotating at a fairly slow speed, meaning visitors are free to walk about their capsule and take photos from all sides.

With more than 3.5 million annual visitors, lines for the London Eye's capsules can get quite long. Pre-booking a fast-track ticket is the best way to maximize your time in England's capital. Travelers with a penchant for luxury can opt to sip champagne while they ride. Many tours combine a rotation on the wheel with other popular London activities such as afternoon tea, a Thames River cruise, a hop-on, hop-off bus tour, or a city tour that covers top sites, including the Tower of London and London Dungeon.

London Eye Fast-Track Ticket with Hop-On Hop-Off Tour and River Cruise
The view from the london eye are amazing, you could see Buckingham palace and all over London very clearly. We had a hop on hop off 48 hour bus ticket for the big bus company. We thought that this was fantastic you get to go around all of the sights with an audio guide it is really worth the money. We are coming back next year and bringing more family.

Big Bus London Hop-On Hop-Off Tour and River Cruise
The only thing that I was not made aware of was once they have printed your ticket, you must not lose them otherwise you will be stuck, even if you show them your detail and emails of confirmation. Otherwise the big bus tour was amazing and friendly.

Must See London: Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour and River Cruise
Great fun, the tour was so convenient due to the hop on hop off facility. Had the opportunity to have a closer look at attractions at own pace. Buses came frequently. 48hr use of the tickets was perfect as we did the boat tour the next day also a fab experience. Only downfall some of the buses didn’t have a tour guide on them but the ones that did were excellent!

London Eye River Cruise
The guy doing the guide made it a really good experience! His name was Mick Tilling as I made an effort to take a pic of his name badge. He was not only a credit to the company but also this great city! A true Londoner with a great sense of humour!

Fabulous views we went on the warmest day of the year with blue skies. We could see for miles well worth a visit. Booking was easy and will recommend the site.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Take a spin on the London Eye at the start of your London vacation to orient yourself and grasp the layout of the capital city's seemingly endless sprawl.

  • On a clear day, it may be possible to spy Windsor Castle on the horizon from one of the capsules.

  • If gray skies threaten rain, nearby indoor activities abound: the SEA LIFE London Aquarium, the BFI IMAX cinema, Madame Tussauds London, and Shrek's Adventure ensure kids and adults stay entertained during a storm.

Unlucky 13

It's no accident that the London Eye has 32 capsules—each one represents one of the city's 32 boroughs. However, observant visitors will notice that the last capsule is actually No. 33—the creators skipped pod No. 13, deeming it unlucky.
