A visit to London is not complete without a ride on the breathtaking London Eye, which offers an exhilarating 360 view of the city high above the Thames. The ride in the glass capsule lasts 30 minutes. The capsules hold up to 25 people, and is still spacious enough for people to move around. I went with a friend who is scared of heights, but he still managed to really enjoy his experience. Buy tickets online and you'll save 10%. They also offer special packages and you can even rent a private capsule - perfect for popping the question!Recommended for:Family Travelers

Europe’s largest Ferris wheel delivers an unobstructed 360-degree view of London. The wheel was built in celebration of the millennium and has become the world’s most famous. More than 3 million tourists annually take a slow spin inside one of the giant glass observation spheres high above the Thames. Each sphere holds up to 28 people. You can ditch the crowds by booking a private capsule in advance.

The London Eye is a really big Ferris wheel at the banks of the River Thames. If you take a ride, you'll have a really great view of London, especially the Houses of Parliament. But I think for a 30 minutes ride it's pretty expensive and there's a huge queue of waiting tourists.

An iconic landmark and a symbol of modern Britain. The London Eye is the UK's most popular paid for visitor attraction, visited by over 3.5 million people a year - A 5 minute walk from the apartment.

Slightly touristy, but the views from the London Eye are incredible! I can't even begin to estimate the numbers of photos I was snapping to map out my walk from the day before. I'd even say it is the modern version of what the Eiffel Tour is to Paris.

A last-minute decision to take the London Eye was very much worth the long wait. It was a beautiful day out and once inside the large capsule, furnished with a bench that my acrophobic mother had to be pulled off of, the ride starts. The wheel turns slowly but once you're higher up, the view is magnificent. It stretches out in all directions and you have a relatively good amount of time to look at it all. A pre-ordered ticket is handy for escaping lines and private capsule ride is a must if you want to really absorb everything with your loved one(s). Night rides are especially gorgeous.
