About the London Eye

The famous London rotating wheel with views across most of central London.

Each of the 32 viewing pods represents one of London's municipal boroughs, and the wheel takes about 30 minutes for a full revolution.

It is Europe's tallest cantilevered observation wheel and the most popular paid tourist attraction in the UK

There can be long queues to go onboard, so best to book tickets in advance.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
