Events & Hotels Near The London Eye

One of the best things about London is its dramatic skyline, with buildings such as St. Paul’s, the Shard and the Gherkin towering over the bustling city. The London Eye enables you to see all these incredible sights with its unrivalled 360 degree views of the city.

On a clear day, you can see as far as 40 kilometres into the distance. Sitting directly over the River Thames and opposite the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, the London Eye is one of the world's tallest observation wheels and is known across the world as an impressive feat of design and engineering.

In terms of footfall, it gets more visitors than the Taj Mahal or the Great Pyramids of Giza. Supermodel Kate Moss loves the London Eye so much she’s gone on it 25 times! A rotation in one of the beautiful glass pods takes around 30 minutes and inside you can explore interactive guides to key landmarks.

The 32 pods represent the 32 London boroughs, with each one weighing as much as 1,052,631 pound coins. There are plenty of places in London to get a good static view of the city, but the London Eye is the only attraction where the outstanding views adapt as the wheel rotates.

Things To Do Near London Eye


Big Ben
Westminister Abbey
The National Theatre

Big Ben

Westminster Abbey

The National Theatre

Big Ben - the nickname for the Great Bell of the famous clock at the north end of the Houses of Parliament - is possibly the most recognisable ‘British’ landmark in the whole of London. The 96-metre high structure was built in the Gothic Revival architectural style and, coupled with the neighbouring Houses of Parliament, is one of the best photo opportunities in the city.

Built in the 13th century by Henry III, Westminster Abbey is one of the most important Gothic buildings in England and certainly one of the most famous. Its history is intriguing, being first the home of Benedictine monks, then the coronation church and final resting place for countless monarchs. It also offers a treasury of art, stained glass, textiles, books and the most extensive collection of monumental sculptures in the UK.

There are 4 different auditoriums showcasing up to 25 different shows a year at the National Theatre, a place that has become a haven for theatre lovers from across the world. Situated centrally along the Southbank riverside, the theatre is also a learning and community centre, hosting tours, broadcasts and exhibitions throughout the year.
