London Eye experience

If you’ve got a head for heights then this thrilling experience rotating upwards to 135 metres (443ft) on board London’s tallest ferris wheel will prove entirely memorable for the outstanding views you’ll enjoy across London’s fine buildings and architectural landmarks.

It’s a ‘must do’ on at least one visit to the capital, enabling you to admire close up this breathtaking feat of design and engineering.

Passengers inside each of the London Eye’s capsules can appreciate a bird’s eye view perspective, with far reaching panoramas up to 40kms in every direction! After the Shard, it is the highest public viewing point in the city.

The EDF Energy London Eye, with a diameter of 120 metres (394ft), is the world’s largest cantilevered observation wheel.

It was conceived and designed by Marks Barfield Architects, a husband and wife team. Launched in 2000 as the Millennium Wheel – marking the turn of the century – it has garnered over 85 awards for national and international tourism, outstanding architectural quality and engineering achievement.

London Eye is the UK’s most popular paid for attraction and a symbol of modern Britain.
