We were here for Valentines day (The couple with the cheesy "best girlfriend/boyfriend" sashes), we saved a bit of money by booking the Sea Life Centre and Madame Tussauds too.

We didn't have a particularly long wait considering the occasion, but the price is a bit much. The view is great.

All in all it's what you expect really. They just need a staff member in each pod to take everyone's pictures, as ours was mainly filled with foreign tourists and kids.

Great view of London and the surrounding area, even on our bleak & damp day. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Plenty of time and space to move around for photos etc. All very clean. Tip is to pre-book tickets on line....saves time queueing which can be torturous!!! Down side of pre-booking is that you cannot rely on the weather being good!

A great view of the city. We crammed this attraction after Buckingham Palace just the day before we left to go back home. We paid thru the Fast Track line, expensive but worth it. I have no patience for extremely long line ups and we were pressed for time. We bypassed the long entry line to get on the ride so in a way, it paid off. It looks beautiful at night but we went during the day.

Incredible views. We thought about buying fast track tickets but the price was way too much. Instead we bought standard tickets on line and collected them at the venue this saved a considerable amount of time as the queue to buy tickets was very long. There was a separate vey short queue to collect tickets bought on line. Then over to the queue for the ride and we waited no more than 20mins so for nearly 1/2 the price of fast track tickets we had a little longer to wait looking at all that was going on on the South bank, well worth it

What an amazing experience. The views were simply wonderful. We pre booked our ticket which is something I would recommend everyong does. Certainly saved time. Loved the 3D experience also.
