London Eye

London Eye, London

Planning to visit the London Eye? See our information below!


The London Eye Ferris wheel is one of the most famous sights in the heart of London. A ride on this world-famous Ferris wheel is undoubtedly on everyone’s to-do-list. Its opening in 2000 earned it the title “Millennium Wheel”; at 135 metres high, it was the tallest in Europe and until 2006, in the world.

The London Eye is the best place in all of London to enjoy amazing views of the city, its skyline and some of its wonders, such as Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral. One lap on the Ferris wheel takes about 30 minutes and consists of 32 glass capsules (one for each London borough). Bring your loved one, because this will be a romantic ride!
