"Ferris Wheel Ride" South Bank Tip by seasonedveteran

South Bank, London: 96 reviews and 210 photos


although expensive (27 euros), it is worth it, because you can have a great view of London from a birds eye view. The capsules as they are called hold 25 people! and it rotates very slowly to make sure you dont miss anything, and there a bench to rest those tourists feet. Also, the board walk near the london eye is unparralled. Please enjoy the stretch along Thames river from the Parliament House all the way to The Tower of London. It is a great area where young people can relax. There are some cafes along this promenade as well.

TIP: get the tickets with your credit card and avoid waiting in line to purchase your ticket. You can also get a combo of london eye + madamme tusauds and save a few bucks.
