About
Located along the Thames River, this iconic observation wheel offers unobstructed views from its glass pods. During the 30-minute ride, you'll be able to see London's well-known buildings like Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and The Shard. On a clear day, you can see up to 25 miles from the top—where Windsor Castle is. Sunset views here are otherworldly, but nightfall views of the twinkling lights are great too. London Eye can be reached easily by taking the Tube to Waterloo station. You might want to buy fast-track passes online in advance to skip the queues. – Tripadvisor

    Eyeing the Capital
    We pre-booked tickets online and were a few minutes early for our time slot, but the staff were happy to let us on following security checks. The views were stunning, and the weather was kind enough to let us see for miles. This is well worth the experience.
    Wow, thanks for the 5* review! We’re so glad you were moved by our iconic 360° views of London. Kind Regards, Jasmine Customer Services Team The lastminute.com London Eye

    Good experience but pod seemed like too many people
    The queue was extremely long, but as my sons have a nimbus card we were allowed to use the accessibility line which really helped. The staff members we met were all friendly, helpful and polite. I do think they put too many people into a pod, (but can understand why) as wasn't able to move freely round as everyone was crowded in the same area and my children couldn't always see out. However it was a good experience and they enjoyed going so high up.

    Must do, must do in London. What a view.
    We didn't have to queue for too long as pre-booked. Staff were kind and helpful. It was busy but ok. The view from the eye is pretty amazing and this is one of those must do attractions in the United Kingdom. I find the price pretty good for what it is.

    1st trip!
    Ist time on the eye, fast queuing system, around 10 people in capsule, Air con, plenty of room. Around 20 mins trip, great views of London. Recommended if you haven't done it.
    Thanks for spending time flying with us. Glad you had fun soaking up the sights of London from the most unique point of view! Please come back again soon! Kind Regards, Helga Customer Services Team The lastminute.com London Eye

    Well worth doing once
    Well worth doing when the weather cooperates. We were there on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon and had a great view. It was very crowded, but they did a pretty good job of organizing the lines. As others have mentioned, the time on your ticket is the time you are "allowed" to get in line. Because it was so crowded, they were sending different time groups to separate roped off areas to queue. Ultimately that worked well. I was a little jealous of the fast track people, and it may be worth it if you're solo or maybe a couple., but it gets very expensive for a family. I think they say they put 25 people in each pod, but we had 30. It looked like the fast track groups had under 20. Even with 30 people we were able to easily move around the pod and get all of the photos we wanted. We were there on an extremely hot day, and I was concerned that inside the pod would feel like an oven despite the claims of air conditioning. Happy to say that wasn't the case. If you stand on either side of the pod you can be in the direct AC flow, but even at the ends it was cool enough. Within my group, we had one person who is afraid of heights and another who suffers from motion sickness. I'm happy to say neither had any problems on the London Eye. The wheel moves so slowly that motion wasn't a problem (the pods don't move freely), and no problem with the height.

    Well worth it
    My family, including two teenage daughters, did this on our first day in London and loved it. Great views over the city. An opportunity to see lots of the familiar landmarks and a nice pace too. Wasn’t sure if I should splash out on this but it was well worth it. Recommended.
    It’s so nice to hear you and your family had a great day out on The lastminute.com London Eye. It really is the best attraction for all the family, isn’t it? We hope you’ll bring everyone back to see us again soon! Helga Customer Services Team The lastminute.com London Eye

    Excellent experience , a must do in London
    Easy access, very nice experience, beautiful views.. we had a very good time, reached before time with pre booked tickets. Could access from the faster line and were allowed to enter before time which saved us a lot of time. The pace was good and the sights were spectacular. Number of people per pod was also optimum.
    Thanks so much for the 5* review. Sounds like you really made the most of your trip to London, soaring through the heart of the city! We really hope you can come and visit us again soon. Don’t forget to book on our official website to guarantee entry. Kind Regards, Helga Customer Services Team The lastminute.com London Eye

    Expense but good view
    Expensive but good view of the city. It moves so slowly you can’t tell you are moving. We did it on the first day of our trip and it gave a nice view of the city. I think slightly overpriced for a 25-30 min ride.

    Worthwhile Wheel Ride
    We found the London Eye to be a very worthwhile endeavor during our stay in London. From above, the views are stunning, it gives you a better idea for the lay of the land, and it moves slow enough; which makes it not at all scary. My only criticism is... I wish less people were in each pod that goes round. Other than that, great views!!
    Sounds like you had a great time! We always love hearing about your flight through the heart of London. Come back and see us soon! Views this good never get old! Kind Regards, Helga Customer Services Team The lastminute.com London Eye

    Glad I made it to the London Eye this time around
    It was my first time on the London Eye and the views were amazing. I opted for the Fast Track ticket but in mid-September the regular queues seemed manageable. Each car on the London Eye allow you to walk around and see different views with bench seating in the middle. The entire ride was probably around 30 minutes or so.
    So glad to hear you had a fun day out flying through London’s skyline with us! Don’t be a stranger – come back and see us again soon. Check out the special offers on our official website to grab the best deal and experience London’s most iconic views again! Kind Regards, Helga Customer Services Team The lastminute.com London Eye

Expensive for that it is but the view is really cool. I would recommend it one time but once you've done it once, there is no reason to do it again.

It was just OK for us, it was like riding around in a slow I mean very slow merry-go-round. It should have been a free ride. we picked a time slot and they were just letting people in without checking for times.

Loved it! We got our tickets through the city pass. Great way to see the tower and Big Ben. There were street performers just outside the entrance. Really cool

It is quick excursion but very enjoyable. Our guide, George, was just the right amount of info and fun. He interacted well and patiently with the large group of young school children on the trip. The river cruise is a good way to see London and gives a different perspective than the usual walking tours.

The people who work at the London Eye were friendly, and helpful. I couldn’t get my tickets up with a scan code and they sent me to a very helpful young man that printed my tickets, with a warm , friendly smile! The view was amazing. I know it’s not their fault but I wish very young children would be put in a car with other children so they don’t disturb adults trying to enjoy the experience without unruly kids( parents fault really)
