The LONDON Eye Review with images

AdvantagesSpectacular views of London, Excellent sightseeing experience, user friendly and take photos

DisadvantagesHigh priced and limited to one ride per ticket, in addition queues tend to be long

"I visited the London Eye for the first time with my brother which proved to be a nice day out. The London Eye I always felt was a bit of a once in a lifetime experience that I could not resist avoiding for any longer. In previous years I have visited places of interest around the London Eye and have always wanted to get a glimpse of a good aerial view from this excellent ride. The attraction center has a few advantages and disadvantages but in some ..." Read review

Not a good place for an upset stomach !

AdvantagesYou can see the beauty of london

DisadvantagesNo duty free

"After recently reviewing The London Aquarium, I thought it might be a good idea to have The London Eye listed next door so to speak. Both The Aquarium and The Eye are within a strolls distance away from each other along the South Bank and though its not exactly a cheap day out, its something quite memorable and worth the time. Please read on to find out more. ******** THE LONDON EYE ************ The eye resembles a huge Ferris wheel but unlike ..." Read review

"...a champagne flight on the London Eye via Internet (www.londoneye.com) as a surprise. Price and booking ----------------------- The champagne flight costs 35 pounds for adults and children older than 4 years if you buy the ticket in the ticket office and you get 10% discount if you book online. We had to choose from nine flight times (12.00; 13.00; 14.00; 15.00; 16.00; 17.00; 18.00; 19.00 and 20.00). We decided to get the one starting at 12 o’clock. ..." Read review

A werewolf in London Part 1

Advantagesget to see a lot of the sights in London

Disadvantagescan't see them all, kids screaming

" NAME OF LOCATION: BA London Eye, the tallest structure in London, which is like a Ferris wheel. BACKGROUND: Sponsored by British Airways since 1996, it is one of the most well known Millennium structures. I have always wanted to go on this, and we keep hearing rumours that it is only going to be open a few more years (don’t know if they are true) so we decided that we would do it this year. Gee Vee Travel, a Barnsley company were doing a day special ..." Read review

London's Glass Eye

AdvantagesViews, Cost, Ease of Booking

DisadvantagesLack of time

"The London Eye is situated on the South Bank of the River Thames and is just 5 minutes walk from Waterloo Station. Brief History:- The creators of the London Eye were husband and wife David Marks and Julia Barfield and they wanted to create an exciting new way to view London and the London Eye was created. It took six years to turn the London Eye into what it is today an amazing landmark which can be seen as you fly into London Heathrow. The ..." Read review

I spy with my BIG eye! Review with images

AdvantagesGreat views over London, Nice one off experience

DisadvantagesPricey, Can get busy

"We live close to London and I think we take it for granted sometimes, so last month I decided to take the family for a 'tourist day' in London to see the sights! Our first stop was the London Eye... ==About the London Eye== The London Eye is a giant big wheel/ferris wheel that was constructed in 1999 and first opened to the public in 2000. It is the biggest wheel in the world and is situated on the South Bank of the River Thames. The London Eye ..." Read review

My 'Woman from Del Monte' experience Diamond review

AdvantagesFantastic Experience, Great views, Good disabled access

DisadvantagesOver too quickly, Potential Queues

"...As it turned out the London Eye would be the main attraction of the weekend. ---Background--- Many areas throughout the world created special attractions and landmarks to celebrate the turning of the Millennium. In London, one of the attractions was the then named 'Millennium Wheel'. At a total cost of £75m it took 16 months from the first piece to be made until it took it's first passengers in 2000. I remember watching TV and there being a ..." Read review

Eye Can See My House From Here! Review with images

AdvantagesFantastic, unique views; Well organised; Fun and relaxing

DisadvantagesThey still use the silly BA terminology!

""The Eye has done for London what the Eiffel Tower did for Paris, which is to give it a symbol and to let people climb above the city and look back down on it. Not just specialists or rich people, but everybody. That's the beauty of it: it is public and accessible, and it is in a great position at the heart of London." - Sir Richard Rogers, winner of the 2007 Pritzker Architecture Prize. When the British Airways London Eye was first opened on ..." Read review

Soaring Above The London Landscape!

AdvantagesA gorgeous view in a comfortable capsule

DisadvantagesQueues length can border on the ridiculous, one of Londons pricier attractions

"...take a trip on the London Eye and see what all the fuss is about. The receptionist at our hotel advised us to arrive fifteen minutes before the ticket office opened at 9.30am to avoid the worst of the queues. Apparently, the London Eye gets busier as the day goes on so I’d definitely recommend visiting as early in the morning as possible – particularly if you have small children as sometimes the queues to get into a capsule can last for over an hour ..."

An Exciting Experience

AdvantagesGet a unique view of London, reasonably priced

DisadvantagesHave to share the capsule with other people

"...as I could do. The London Eye has been sponsored by British Airways since 1996 but it wasn’t until last year that I actually got the chance to take a 'flight on the London Eye. The London Eye took six years to be built and is often referred to as The Millennium Wheel because it was built to mark a new millennium. The London Eye is fairly central in the City of London and can be easily reached by public transport as both Westminster and Waterloo stations ..." Read review

EYE CAN SEE EVERYTHING

AdvantagesAll in opinion

DisadvantagesAll in opinion

"...a different perspective then the London eye is the best way to do it. This 135 metre high observation wheel is a symbol of 21st century and can be seen from many boroughs in London as it towers over the River Thames. Big Ben and other landmarks are dwarfed beside it. The London eye is situated in the heart of London – adjacent to Westminster Bridge. There are three main stations you can use Waterloo, Westminster or Embankment. The nearest one out ..." Read review

London? Aye

AdvantagesFantastic views

DisadvantagesPossibly overpriced

"...to do when we visited London in November - apart from avoiding a lethal dose of lead poisoning from a trigger-happy sniper protecting George Dubya on his recent, almost private, state visit - was take a spin on the Eye...or to give it its Sunday name, The BRITISH AIRWAYS LONDON EYE. Now, if you're not familiar with this attraction, let me explain right now that we're not talking about a visit to the the Museum of Anatomy, or even a specialist ..." Read review
