I do not get a giant ferris wheel in the middle of London. I only half-way got the one in Chicago's World's Fair when the ferris wheel was innovative.
That said, younger people seem to enjoy seeing London while taking a ferris wheel spin.
This is something that you would either love or hate to do - no middle ground.Recommended for:

The London Eye is the giant Ferris wheel that lets you look at London without bothering to climb a church like all the other cities make you do. Also it has giant pods that made me think/really, really hope that at the end they would just pop us off and plunk us down in the river where we would then have a good old-fashioned 007 chase scene.

London Eye is Europe's tallest Ferris wheel, there is always long line to get on the London Eye, the view on top is amazing. We waited night time and the line was much shorter, if you want to go during the day, be sure to get the fast pass!Recommended for:

The ride to the top of the London Eye is well worth the time and money. Make sure you pick a good day and you will be rewarded with fantastic views. I would recommend a evening ascent to take advantage of the beautifully illuminated city.Recommended for:

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:
