Measuring as 135m tall and wheel diameter of 120m, The London Eye is Europe’s tallest Ferris wheel, (fourth-tallest Ferris wheel in the world). Each capsule weighs 10 tonnes and can carry 25 people.

The gradual ride takes roughly 30 minutes to complete, as a result you will have more than enough time to see magnificent views across London and also get to see some of London’s most famous landmarks such as Big Ben, Houses of Parliament and St Paul’s Cathedral.  

The London Eye is a fantastic day out for everyone. Families, Couples, Tourists and Locals.

Before going onboard all buggies and pushchairs must be folded completely flat with all items removed.
