Indeed, several pairs of eyes will be captivated upon entering the capsule that will enable passengers to savour London’s landscape and legacy. London Eye stands at 135 metres high and is the tallest cantilevered observation wheel in the world.


The experience starts in the queue as you have a photo taken by staff and are handed a ticket that could potentially result in you winning a prize. All is revealed at the photo counter upon completion of your London Eye experience.

There are several information ports within each capsule, should you wish to verify a point of interest or even improve your London fact file with key points about the said landmarks. Furthermore you can experience London Eye whilst sitting down in total relaxation or opt to stand up and walk the rounds to find the perfect moment for a detailed panoramic photo shot. As your capsule reaches optimum altitude, the wheel pauses for a few minutes so you never feel in a rush to take your desired photos to create your own London collage.

Indeed, London need not to be lit up at night to create dazzling captures. Instead the plethora of historical buildings can be admired throughout the day with many viewers opting for selfies whilst ‘holding’ onto their favourite landmark in the backdrop. Elsewhere tourists furiously point at the famous sites of London that define its rich history, such as The Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Wembley Stadium and St Paul’s Cathedral.

Should you wish to compare and contrast the views of London at day and night, you can purchase a dual entry ticket for just an additional £10. This seasonal promotion is available between October and March. Be sure to book your tickets in advance to take advantage of the discounted prices available online. By way of example, a Standard ticket can be purchased online from £23.45, which is a saving of 10% on the prices at the door. Therefore on arriving at the London Eye you should only have your eyes focused on what you are going to witness, rather than having to keep an ‘eye’ out for the queue for tickets!

About Ranjit Shergill

I love opinions whether I agree or disagree with them and as such writing presents me with the golden opportunity to share my views across a large landscape of readers. My aspiration is to draw viewership from all backgrounds, thereby reaching out to a worldwide audience. Whilst on a flight to India when I was seven years old I sang jingle bells for the whole duration of the flight. This subsequently led to my growing interests in aviation and indeed travelling. I currently work in Sports Analytics and see my job as a privilege getting to watch sport which most followers would do for free! It is safe to say that I am addicted to travelling, whether it be going on off the beaten track experiences that I endured during my trip through the backroads of Central America or going on city bike tours in glamorous settings such as the River Danube. I embrace cultural hotspots and feel that travelling combines exciting adventures with humbling life experiences. I currently reside in my hometown of Harrow in London, United Kingdom. Given that London is one of the most visited and storied cities in the world, I feel very privileged to have grown up in such an environment. !
