What people are saying about The London Eye

Be sure to book online beforehand, everything worked perfectly. An insider tip: Pay attention to high and low tide when booking, this is not mentioned anywhere, but can be very relevant, because at high tide you can see the sights better. Small drawback, we had booked German, but it was ultimately in English. Otherwise really great.

Great deal. The eye was shut down but they were able to give us tickets for the next day without any issues at all. So glad that I bought them together.
