About
Located along the Thames River, this iconic observation wheel offers unobstructed views from its glass pods. During the 30-minute ride, you'll be able to see London's well-known buildings like Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and The Shard. On a clear day, you can see up to 25 miles from the top—where Windsor Castle is. Sunset views here are otherworldly, but nightfall views of the twinkling lights are great too. London Eye can be reached easily by taking the Tube to Waterloo station. You might want to buy fast-track passes online in advance to skip the queues. – Tripadvisor

    Amazing tourist attraction
    i went with my grandmother who has lived in london for over ten years and we had an amazing time going on the london eye. if you aren't a fan of heights i wouldn't recommend. it takes around 45 minutes for it to go round once. the pods are very big and you can book one out for yourself but if you don't then you will share the pod with other people. if you have a wheelchair, the staff are more than happy to assist. one thing that i didn't like was this one staff lady who pushed me in the pod and almost trapped my foot in the door! apart from that it was a lovely experience and i would go again.
    Thanks for the review. We hope to see you again soon! Kind Regards, Jasmine Customer Services Team The lastminute.com London Eye

    One of the best views
    The whole experience takes about 30 minutes. I viewed the city from the Shard, Skyview Garden, and the London Eye. The due to the location, the London eye provided the best views of London's attractions.
    Wow, thanks for the 5* review! We’re so glad you were moved by our iconic 360° views of London. Kind Regards, Jasmine Customer Services Team The lastminute.com London Eye

    Great time
    I had booked 2 adults tickets using the kellogs snack pack voucher where you buy one ticket and get another ticket free. I was told to bring the packaging with me when I present the tickets. Anyway when we were on the way we had some issues with the tubes and got there an hour late. Luckily we did manage to get on the London Eye which was great. We nearly didn't bother going as we got really late but glad we did. The only thing was nobody asked us about the packaging so I thought that was annoying because I brought it all the way from Manchester but i don't think its a big deal. Other than that we had a great time.
    Thanks so much for the 5* review. Sounds like you really made the most of your trip to London, soaring through the heart of the city! We really hope you can come and visit us again soon. Don’t forget to book on our official website to guarantee entry. Kind Regards, Helga Customer Services Team The lastminute.com London Eye

    Arnie for the VIP experience win
    We booked the VIP experience earlier this week. Unfortunately, it was the same day as an underground strike. Because of all the traffic , we were 7 minutes late and missed our 3:30 time. When we arrived Arnie was generous enough to rebook us on the next experience at 4:30. He went with us and made everyone feel comfortable and welcomed!it was a very nice experience. We were up there for 30 minutes and saw all the major sights around while enjoying champagne. Thanks Arnie!
    Thanks for leaving a review about your trip to the lastminute.com London Eye. We agree – the Champagne Experience is totally the way to go to make your flight extra special. Sometimes a little bit of bubbly makes all the difference! Arnie will be so pleased to hear that they made your trip all the more memorable. Browse our official website to plan your next treat.

    Loved the views
    We had a great time on our London Eye Champagne Experience. Arnie, the VIP concierge was super helpful in explaining what we were to expect in the capsule, helping us bypass the long line, and explaining what we were seeing throughout the beautiful city and it’s views. Those views! Cannot imagine a better place to get pictures and a 360 degree vista of London. We were in the capsule with approx 12 people and enjoyed the champagne and conversation. Arnie even gave me hints on how to take portrait photos on my iPhone and on how to edit them. I believe that all those aboard enjoyed themselves and the champagne experience. My only complaint is that we only had enough champagne for one glass per person which seems to be a company policy. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience and we highly recommend this tour.

    Go early in the morning to beat the crowds
    A wonderful way to take London in and appreciate the views of all of London's spectacular sites. The staff is friendly and we felt very safe the whole time. The ticket booth is across the path from the eye so don't stand in line until you have your ticket.

    Birthday Surprise. wonderful experience
    What a fabulous day. Dennis from Iconic whom we met in the gift shop was a wonderful kind man. As it was a birthday present he went out of his way to make sure we were looked after and spoilt. Well done to him and the rest of the staff for making this trip so memorable. Thank you

    Easy iconic London experience
    We had a great experience with the London eye. Booking online was easy and its allowed to change your time booking if your plans change. We were very lucky that the day we went we had clear blue skys so very good views. We booked Tuesday at 11.15am and despite it being half term only had to que for 13mins before getting on. Process is very efficient. We were on the eye for 25mins.

We all had a great time on this river cruise, despite it being a bit chilly.

The views were fantastic and were great for taking pictures of the landmarks.

The commentary was both informative and funny - we would recommend this to anyone.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Given London prices, this was not too expensive for a special occasion and worth the money. The sunset made it even more special. 🥰

This is a great way to see London and the sights. We did this after doing a river cruise and it was nice to see the sites from a different point of view. The pods are very spacious so we were able to wander about inside. The group photo we had done was not the best as there was glare form the low autumn sun but other than that it was a great experience

Parking situation was shocking. They’ve clearly oversold the spaces so we hunted around for about 30min looking for a space. Eventually then opened up the gravel area at the back.

REALLY REALLY EXPENSIVE. Not worth it. All you do is go round a wheel once. And it is like £198 for my family to go on it.
NEVER GOING TO PAY THAT PRICE!

Many thanks 🙏 ANYWAY!

The cue was efficient and we got there in no time. We were offered to have our photo taken then were promptly on our carriage. The views were brilliant. We saw Big Ben, the Shard, the BT Tower and Westminster Abby. There was plenty of space to move around and we were at the top before we knew it. When we were nearly finished there was a photo opportunity with a camera. Overall, great views, lots of fun and worth the price.

The river cruise was an add on to our London eye tickets and myself and the kids loved it! They never sit and listen but listened to every word Jordan had to say! Even recalling the information later on. Jordan was absolutely brilliant so funny and engaging not boring or monotone. Thankyou so much. I wasn't really too fussed on the river cruise but absolutely changed my mind. The views were amazing aswell

It's one of the symbols of London and of course we had to visit it. Maybe the line was that small but what would you expect from such an iconic place! It's better to come on sunny day to have the best view. Very nice!

Better than I expected although over priced & their queuing system is very cheeky as VIPs constantly jump the queue. There a lot more places now to get high views of London & some are even free like The Garden at 120
