London Eye Reviews
Newest Review: ... tickets which were quite expensive and then joined the queue to get on. Waiting to get on felt like ages as the queue felt like it went on for miles. When we got in the capsule there wasn't enough seats for everyone so a lot of people were either really squashed or stood up. From then on was the longest most boring half an hour of my life. The wheel went around so slow it just as well have been stopped. The view included people standing in front of us, grass, buildings and water. All of which I could have seen on the plane home. Hours later (or so it felt) we were near the bottom. As the doors opened everyone pushed and shoved there ... more

On my first visit to London I was made to go on the London eye because my anty had always wanted to go on it. When we got their we went to buy tickets which meant standing in a long queue. We bought the tickets which were quite expensive and then joined the queue to get on. Waiting to get on felt like ages as the queue felt like it went on for miles. When we got in the capsule there wasn't enough seats for everyone so a lot of people were either really squashed or stood up. From then on was the longest most boring half an hour of my life.

**THE LONDON EYE*** The London eye is just a short walk from London Waterloo station. It opened in March 2000 and has since then become an iconic landmark. The eye just looks like a giant Ferris wheel with clear pod's on the outer edge enabling you to see the beautiful views of London as you go round. Many people I know have been on the London eye but for me this was going to be my first time on it and I'm not a huge fan of heights so was feeling rather nervous. The eye is the tallest observation wheel in the world with a height of 135 metres which weighs over 2000 metric tonnes. The eye looks beautiful at night, when it's lit up in beautiful blue lights and can be ... Read the complete review

What ever you do, dont go on the london eye! not only is it an eye sore in london, it has ruined my life for the past 6yrs! I will never go on it again and never recommend it! The whole "trip" takes about 20mins to go round, it's great for seeing london from high up, no good if you suffer from vertigo! The queue to get on was quite long but it moved quickly, so not much waiting around! It's not that cheap to go on either, I can't remember how much it was but everyone i was with didn't enjoy the trip. I reason i hate it is that, since only on it i have become claustroprobic, someone i was with in the dome thing has a panic attack ... Read the complete review

On a visit to London last year, a friend and I decided we'd go on the London eye. As I'm a student, I was ready to hand over my NUS card to get discount off, but unfortunately it wasn't accepted. The cost of the 'flight' was around £19 which included a 4D video experience. Once we had paid we went to queue at the viewing room. The wait wasn't too long until we were able to go in. Unfortunately there was no seating, which was a little annoying, because after trapsing around London all day your feet are aching. The viewing was quite good. You were given your 3D glasses, and then the door was closed and it began. There were things like bubbles on the screen which ... Read the complete review

-General Information- The London Eye is situated along London's South Bank by the Thames. The nearest train station is Waterloo, where you can also get the tube on the Jubilee, Northern and Bakerloo lines. It was built in 1999 for the new millennium, as part of a big architectural project that included the Millenium Dome (now called The O2 after being bought out by the giant mobile phone corporation). Obviously, it's basically a ferris wheel, and was the biggest in the world until 2006 when the Star of Nanchang, a monster, was built in China. The London Eye is 443 feet tall. There are 32 capsules around the wheel which carry ... Read the complete review
