Located in the heart of London, along the River Thames, the London Eye is situated across the river from the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. At 443 ft (135 m) tall, the London Eye is the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel and has come to be one of London’s iconic structures and modern symbol of the capital. 

You can't visit London without getting a view of the city from above. Hop on the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel and take in London's eclectic sights, which include a mixture of age-old landmarks, crumbling city walls and record-breaking skyscrapers. You'll be right opposite Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, and you'll get amazing views of St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, Picadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, and more. Your relaxed ride will take 30 minutes, so you'll have plenty of time to take photos of the sights. There are also interactive touchscreen displays dotted around each pod to help you explore and identify the landmarks, even the lesser-known gems. After your ride, make your way to the London Eye 4D Experience. This multi-sensory, four-minute show brings the city to life through video and special effects including bubbles and scents.
