Good place to go and can see many tourists from all over the world. An experienc on the London Eye will lift you high enough to see up to 40 kilometers on a clear day and keep you close enough to see the spectacular details of the city unfolding beneath you.Recommended for:

I didn't go up because I heard it was very expensive and the line was insanely long. It's probably a really good view of the city, but not one I'm willing to wait an hour for.Recommended for:

I highly recommend this to anyone who's visiting London or to anyone who already lives there and hasn't tried going onto the large wheel. The sights you'll see up high are amazing and well worth the amount you pay for the ticket. The ticket is a day pass, so you can buy it early morning and then come back later in the evening to catch what London looks like at sundown (the ride stops at 9PM). It's very beautiful!Recommended for:

The EDF Energy London Eye (commonly the London Eye, or Millennium Wheel, formerly the Merlin Entertainments London Eye and before that, the British Airways London Eye) is a giant 135-metre tall Ferris wheel situated on the South Bank of the River Thames in the English capital. It is also described as "the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel". The site is adjacent to that of the former Dome of Discovery, which was built for the Festival of Britain in 1951.
It's expensive, it seems architecturally out-of-place, and the wait can be insufferable. However, the payoff is outstanding, and with a view that the British would call "Lovely". I was in the pod with around 15 other folks and at times I was conflicted on which view I should be paying attention as we spun around for 30 minutes or so.Recommended for:

I walked along the river at night near the London Eye. Though I did not go on it-- it's a nice thing to look at. If you feel like taking a stroll at night (and not going out and getting piss drunk, which is your other option), this is a great option. Take a few photos. It's beautiful during the day, but my vote is a night shot.Recommended for:

This is the first attraction that I visited in London. I cannot forget my first day in London. I had booked a taxi for a day with a company called Totally Driven and the driver who came to pick me was the one who suggested me this attraction. He also suggested Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Madame Tussauds. At the beginning I was not much interested in London Eye, since I need to wait for long to collect the ticket and moreover it's just a giant wheel. Once it started moving, I started enjoying with full of excitement to reach the top. It was an amazing experience and I suggest London Eye for all the first time visitors. Worth visiting!Recommended for:

The London Eye is one of the tallest Ferris Wheels in the world. It's prominent location along the Thames is a nod to the old cities thriving culture and modernity. Personally, my fear of heights precludes me from ever going in so tall and precarious-seeming a contraption, but it's nice to look at.Recommended for:

I thought it was kind of overrated. The views were gorgeous of course, as you would expect, but the huge queues and crowded capsules really take away from that. If you can secure some kind of ticket online that exempts you from queuing, go for it.

The Yuppie is terrified of heights, so a trip to the top was out of the question. But stopped by to see the landmark just the same. It's brilliant for photographers, either shooting from the top, or just as a subject!Recommended for:

One of the major London monuments and is just next to the London Aquarium, which would be perfect to visit as well. The Southbank unfurls just a couple of hundred yards away - a truly great batch of places to visit - you'll be spoiled for choice!Recommended for:

I went on a clear, sunny day. It's about 30 pounds for a fast track London Eye ticket. You can buy online to get it cheaper, and I'd suggest doing this is you for sure know you're doing this. I wasn't for sure and did it last minute so I just paid there.
Overpriced? I think so. Amazing? Not so much. But it IS the London Eye and when in Rome....
I think I didn't go at the best time, in the afternoon. I think earlier in the morning might be better when there's not a huge crowd or perhaps closer to sunset. I'd say it's worth doing at least once to cross it off your list. :)

While this is one of the things to do while you are visiting London, I didn't find it as exciting as I thought. The view you get is spectacular, but you're on the eye for 30 minutes. You can only see so far and it does not take that long to see what you do. I went in the morning. I think nighttime would be better.

No trip to London is complete without a ride on the London Eye. At one point, the world's largest Ferris wheel, the Eye offers views for 25 miles in every direction on a clear day. There are 32 large glass pods that take you on an amazing 30 minute ride. An absolute must see during the day, and a stroll around the base at night is almost as amazing, offering views of big ben and the houses of parliament across the river.Recommended for:
