The London Eye located on the South Bank of the River Thames, facing Westminster Abbey, is now becoming one of the most frequented tourist attractions in London, with visitor numbers now in the millions and its not hard to understand why.
It’s always best to book in advance, so you don’t have to queue up for your ticket, this will speed up the boarding process and the continuous rotation of the wheel also helps to keep the flow of tourists moving. It is always better when you don’t really feel like you are having to wait at a standstill.
The 30 minute journey takes you up to the dizzy heights of 135 metres, on a clear day you can expect to see as far as 40 kilometres in all directions, simply stunning!
One doesn’t always get the chance to see low level aerial views of London, for this reason, as with all ferris wheels, it will always prove to be a popular means for tourists to see the sights. I, like many others, have a real fascination with heights, but even if you are a bit nervous, the whole experience feels really safe and therefore, eliminating any fear factor.
If you haven’t already done it, be sure to get ROUND TO IT!
