“The LONDON Eye”

published 15/07/2011

Spectacular views of London, Excellent sightseeing...

High priced and limited to one ride per ticket, in...

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...

You can see the beauty of london

No 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...

“I spy with my BIG eye!”

published 29/05/2012

Great views over London, Nice one off experience

Pricey, 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...

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.

“ London's Glass Eye”

Views, Cost, Ease of Booking

Lack 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...

Over too quickly, Potential Queues

So, I had my reasons to do it (which will become apparent later on) and booked a long weekend in London. I went through www.totalstay.com to get my accommodation, booked my train tickets through GNER, all I had left to do now was sort out what to do. As it turned out the London Eye would be the...

They 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...

During a stay in London, we decided to 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...

“An Exciting Experience”

published 30/07/2009

Get a unique view of London, reasonably priced

Have to share the capsule with other people

Although I only live a 90 minute drive from London, I don’t visit this City as often 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...

jumping from a (not everso) speeding wheel!

A couple of months ago I made a small trek to London with a friend, and found myself being led in the direction of the London Eye. For the entire duration of the journey to London I had been refusing to go on it. I do not like heights, I do not enjoy being scared, I've never even been in an...

“LONDON'S EYE ON LONDON”

published 01/06/2007

Great experience, great views, not too busy now.

A bit pricey, Can be quite warm on a Hot day

It was half term for my children at school, so we had decided to have a trip into London, as they were both a bit older now. Being 5 & 7 Years old I felt that they could handle the long walking and the Underground a lot better. Well, with that decided we started to think about attractions to...

As a young child London was something that conjured up some amazing images for me and I never imagined that one day I would live a 30 minute train journey away from London Liverpool St. Suddenly all of these wonderful places and areas I had only read about in books or seen on the television were...

I had been previously warned about the queues at this attraction, however when I mentioned this to my travel companions I was greeted with the ‘Ive been before and people like to exaggerate’ type response. However we got to the London Eye around midday on a Saturday and I couldn’t see anything...
