London Eye – See London from the Clouds


The London Eye is one of London’s most iconic attractions, standing an impressive 135 metres tall, giving you 360 degree panoramic views of the City of London.

Now more formally known as the EDF Energy London Eye, it’s yet another attraction in the City which offers unrivalled views of landmarks from Big Ben, The Shard, Gherkin as far as Wembley and Canary Wharf.

Tickets include a sublime 4D experience which gives breathtaking aerial footage of London, taking you through a magical journey around the city. If you weren’t fortunate enough to catch the London New Year Eve Firework display, you’ll be shown a truly amazing 4D experience.

Each London Eye capsule is complete with state of the art Samsung Galaxy Tabs. These act as interactive touch screen guides of the city, as well as offering even more impressive sights of some of London’s spectacular landmarks.

The London Eye takes approximately 30 minutes to complete one full rotation, and you are guaranteed amazing views of the Capital City.
