Details

The EDF Energy London Eye is centrally located in the heart of the capital, gracefully rotating over the River Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. At 443 feet (135 m), the London Eye is the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel. A feat of design and engineering, it has become a global icon and the modern symbol representing the capital. The experience showcases breathtaking 360-degree views of London and its famous landmarks, and has been the number one visitor experience in the city for the past decade.

The gradual rotation in one of the 32 high-tech glass capsules takes approximately 30 minutes and gives you an ever-changing perspective of London. Within each capsule, 6 touchscreen tablets allow you to explore the capital’s iconic landmarks in several languages.

With each experience, enjoy the amazing London Eye 4-D film. Take a journey of discovery above the capital and see London like you’ve never seen it before — with multi-sensory special effects, including wind, bubbles, and mist—a truly breathtaking experience.

This experience on the London Eye will lift you high enough to see up to 25 miles (40 km) on a clear day and keep you close enough to see the spectacular details of the city unfolding beneath you.
