Newest Review: ... a 20% discount but also means you don't have to queue to buy tickets. A family of four ticket costs just over £50. There is still a queue... more
And I'm scared of heights!

Advantages: The technology, the views
Disadvantages: possibly the queuing
What a challenge! A visit to Kew Gardens or the London Eye. I chose the Eye. Still can't believe it. Me who can't even think about going up high without coming out in a cold sweat.
Standing there looking up it was unbelievable - like something out of a science fiction film. And high, high , high.
I scrutinised everyone who came off; yes all smiling; no one looked ill or green.
I squinted up to the cars above; no one screaming to get out; no one clawing at the windows. BUT......
I've been fooled before (remember that fairground ride they all said was a piece of cake and I was sick from the top to the bottom?) HOWEVER....
What was I worrying about? The views were wonderful, the Eye itself a miracle of technology and the height.....Yes high, but so smoothly done, so slowly executed it was a piece of cake!
