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.
