The London Eye is one of the best tourist attractions in the capital - I have been on it 3 or 4 times! (Different times of day - with different people! ) It offers magnificent views over London (but best on a clear and sunny day )
Tickets are now 12.50GBP per adult.

It's a good idea to know what you are looking at when you are up there - so buy one of those panoramic view cards before you take your trip -that way you will recognise some landmarks and get more out of it. The queues are horrendous on Summer Saturdays but... if you can... do a winter night "flight."... at 8pm in November you can just walk on and if the evening is clear and starry.... you can almost see heaven from your own private pod! :))

When you come down... take a stroll along the South Bank to the secondhand book market.... you might find a treasure! Then you can get a nice cup of coffee and watch the boats along the Thames.... isn't London great ???

Address: South Bank
Directions: North from Waterloo Station or South from Charing Cross (Over Hungerford Bridge and turn right).
