At 135 metres, The London Eye is the world's tallest observation wheel, with 40 kilometre panoramic views on a clear day. The gradual flight (ride) in one of the 32 high-tech and fully enclosed glass capsules takes approximately 30 minutes offering spectacular views of London and its famous landmarks such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and St Paul's Cathedral. Combine your flight with a 40 minute sightseeing cruise down the River Thames taking in the sights of the riverside landmarks with fascinating live commentary.
Kids on the Eye: The London Eye welcomes children of all ages. Buggies and pushchairs must be folded completely flat and all items removed before taking them on board the London Eye and when waiting on the boarding ramps. Facilities are available inside the ticket office for buggies which are fixed and can not be folded down. Baby changing facilities are available in the ticket office.
