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!

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!

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. :)

Very touristy, but not to be missed! The line is always long but it's worth it. This is the best view of the city and overall a very unique experience.

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.

The London Eye is not just a ferris wheel. It is a great piece of engineering. It allows you to walk around and see the city from every angle. Drawings inside help you identify points of interest. At the end of the ride, they take a picture of you in it, which you can buy later. Do buy your tickets in advance in order to avoid huge lines.

This is overpriced and over touristed, but great with kids or to get your bearings in London. On a clear day, this is worth it for the views alone but otherwise don't bother.Recommended for:Family Travelers
