Enjoy amazing 360-degree views over London from the London Eye - the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel.

The special engineering achievement has become a symbol of the modern capital and a world-famous icon of architecture. While riding the London Eye, you can see up to 40km (25 miles) on a clear day and at an impressive 135 metres (443 ft) high, you’ll be able to spot some of the capital's most iconic landmarks and top attractions, including Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace

The London Eye has 32 pods, each representing one of London’s 32 boroughs and it is the perfect way to reconnect with and experience the beautiful city of London.

How long does it take to go around the London Eye?

A leisurely rotation in one of the 32 high-tech glass pods takes approximately 30 minutes and gives you an ever-changing perspective of London. If you can’t wait to get up in the sky you can skip the queues with a fast-track entry ticket.
