    You can look up and down the Thames River from your vantage point above the city in this oversized Ferris Wheel. The best time to go is at sunset for a glowing overview of a fantastic vibrant city. Be sure your camera battery is charged and you have space in your memory card, you'll be sure to take lots of photos.

    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.

    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.

    Simon Burrell of Our Man on the Ground recommends the London Eye. "a visit to The London Eye on a clear summer’s evening as the sun goes down is a must, but book in advance if you want to avoid the lines."

    Great views of the city all the way up and over the loop. The cars are large enough that there is plenty of personal space even when filled to capacity.

    It took a work outing to get me on the London Eye, but I can now say it's actually worth it. In a city that's more horizontal than vertical, the view from the London Eye is, simply, unmatched. The cars are much larger than I was expecting, so I didn't feel at all claustrophobic.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    London eye is a huge observation wheel with glass capsules. It is visible from a lot of places in London. From the wheel you will be able to see the whole center of the city. Very recommended to start or finish the trip.

    Cool place to visit at night, but the ride is pretty expensive.

    We get a really cloudy day (ow really?!), so we couldnt see most of the city. But its a iconic ride, to see the Parlament and the river.

Description

Known as both the London Eye and the Millennium Wheel, this huge 450-foot ferris wheel on the South Bank gives a fabulous bird's eye view of London, if your stomach is strong enough. Its inception in the beginning of 2000 honoured the Millenium; and the spectacular views stretch for 25 miles on a clear day to include views of Windsor and Tunbridge Wells. Up to 25 people can fit in each of the wheel's "capsules." The wheel turns surprisingly slowly-it takes thirty minutes to go round, so there's plenty of time to spot landmarks and take photos. There's a menace looming high above the River Thames, across from Big Ben and the House of Parliament. I kid, I kid. It's just the London Eye, a giant ferris wheel that offers the best views in London. The lines may be long, but the entire ride around the wheel takes about 30 minutes, so you'll get plenty of time to enjoy the view when you finally make it to the front. ... read more
