There is no doubt about the fact that London is one of the most spectacular cities in the world. If it’s wonderful architecture, the presence of a legendary river and amazing royal gardens are not enough to make it one of the most beautiful cities in the present day, it’s palaces, monuments, museums and towers add to the glory of this world city. When there is so much to see, you would need a special place to see it all from and London Eye is meant exactly for that. From this amazing observation wheel, you can see the most amazing view of London.
- This wheel is 135 metres tall and hence the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe. It has 32 capsules, each of which way 32 tonnes and can comfortably carry around 25 people at a time.
- The popularity of the wheel is clearly depicted by the fact that 3.5 million visitors experience it every year, making it the most popular paid tourist attraction in the UK.
- London Eye provides a rare bird’s eye view of the ancient city. You can see up to 40km of city’s landscape from the capsules.
- The full rotation of the wheel gives you 30 minutes to observe the city. The tickets range from £17.96 per adult to £37.55 depending on the package you opt for.
Apart from general, shared viewing, you can also book private capsules if you want to experience the view with only your close ones. Private capsules have now become a popular place to propose too. If you want to do the same, you can look into Cupid’s Capsule. There are so many other ways to enjoy a London Eye ride with a Champagne Tasting Capsule, Wine Tasting capsule, Hotel Chocolate Capsule and a customisable capsule.
There are so many other things in the complex to keep you entertained like 4D experience, river cruises, by souvenirs from the gift shop, enjoy a delicious meal in cafes and restaurants. It would be a nice idea to find a hotel which is at a short distance from the London Eye and other such interesting and popular tourist destinations.
