About this experience

Are you looking to take your London experience to new heights? Take a ride on Europe’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel in the heart of the city a must-do on your London vacation.

Originally constructed as a temporary exhibit to celebrate the new millennium, the London Eye offers panoramic views of the city’s skyline that stretches as far as 25 miles on a clear day. That’s to Windsor Castle!

Standing at an impressive 135 metres (443ft) high, the London Eye boasts 32 glass pods that represent each one of London’s boroughs. Step into the spacious capsule, that’s completely enclosed and climate-controlled, and be transported to the heights of the city.

Spot the grandeur of Buckingham Palace, the clock tower housing Big Ben, and the gothic structures of the Houses of Parliament. Gaze out at other famous silhouettes such as the Shard, the winding River Thames, and the majestic dome of St. Paul's Cathedral. These sights become even more magical at sunset or when night falls, and the city lights begin to twinkle.
