London: The London Eye Ticket with Fast-Track Option
- Duration: 30 minutes
Originally built as a temporary structure to mark the millennium, London's magnificent ferris wheel remains one of the city's best-loved attractions to this day. Here are a few other top landmarks to try spotting from its 135-meter peak!
London's sights mostly lie north of the river, but some of its more humble are to the south, such as the iconic Battersea Power Station and the Oval Cricket Ground.
"Check the weather forecast before booking your tickets as the best time of day to visit is when London is least foggy. If you're not too bothered about picking out individual sights, then nighttime offers a completely different spectacle!
On most days of the year the ticket office opens at 9:30AM, with the first rotation beginning at 10:00AM. Closing times vary depending on the season, so be sure to check londoneye.com first!"
One full rotation lasts half an hour.
The London Eye is just a short walk from Embankment tube station, and Waterloo and Charing Cross tube and overground stations. It can also be accessed via the number 77, 211, and 381 bus routes.

Very impressive. Excellently organised we got a table in the window as it was my husbands 60th birthday and the taff were very accommodating. Tea was lovely and the time spent was also excellent really enjoyed the whole experience
It was very easy to get our tickets scanned and board. The views from the eye were spectacular, you could see so mich of the city.
Ask for a window seat and prey for good weather - excellent trip! We loved it!
Best way to see sights in comfort with lunch provided. Great value
