London Eye Highlights
Choose between standard or fast track entry and climb aboard one of the London Eye's 32 glass capsules – you'll take a turn over the Thames for stunning views of London and its remarkable Landmarks. Tell the time by Big Ben, see the devilish detail in the extravagant Houses of Parliament, and perhaps even hear the chimes at St Paul's. Moving at a speed of 26 cm per second, a full revolution of the London Eye lasts about 30 minutes. While on board, you'll be able to enjoy an ever-changing perspective of London, with interactive digital guides available in 7 languages. From the very top, you can see for up to 40 km on a clear day.More Info Read Less

Examine the glorious detail in the gothic gradeur of the Houses of Parliament. Tell the time by Big Ben, and check to see whether Parliament is sitting for a night session by the light atop Elizabeth Tower. See the white dome of St. Paul's, spot the bascules rising on Tower Bridge, and try to find all of London's growing collection of curiously shaped skyscrapers. On a clear day, you'll even be able to see Windsor Palace, 40 km away to the east.
The London Eye is the third highest observation wheel in the world. At the very top, you'll be 135 metres (443 feet) above the city. The Eye has 32 glass-lined capsules, which represent the 32 boroughs of London. Like the Eiffel Tower, the Eye was originally meant to be a temporary structure. It opened in 2000 to commemorate the Millennium, but soon proved so popular that it became a mainstay (and icon) of London.
As London's most popular attraction, there's often a queue. Go for a fast-track entry ticket and you'll get to skip the majority of the lines. At your chosen time, you can board the London Eye via the fast-track entrance, bypassing the biggest queues!
Save money with the London Eye Standard Entry ticket. This allows you entry to the London Eye via the standard entrance. Please note that queues are common for the standard entrance, especially on weekends or during school holidays.
