What you can expect
Fly high above the slow-moving waters of the Thames for a bird's-eye vantage point over London's historical landmarks and modern architecture. Take in far-reaching views of St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London on this relaxed revolution over the British metropolis.
Start your experience as you snag a seat at the London Eye 4-D film. Hold on while you soar above the capital in a groundbreaking, multi-sensory film experience replete with dramatic in-theater special effects of wind, snow, and mist—the perfect prelude to your real ride on the wheel.
Next, board one of the London Eye’s 32 glass-lined capsules and slowly swoop a circular 443 feet (135 m) into the air. Gaze over the tranquil waters of the River Thames, iconic Big Ben—recognisable by its 4-faced chiming clock and spire—and the 19th-century, Gothic grandeur of Parliament. Keep your eyes peeled for the Royal Standard flag flying above Buckingham Palace—the indicator that the Queen is at home. At the tippy top—if clear skies are on your side—you can see as far as 25 miles (40 km) away.
