The highlight of any visit to London is a 'flight' on the World renowned EDF Energy's London Eye, the World's largest observation wheel. At an incredible 135 metres above the River Thames, in a high-tech fully enclosed capsule the 360 degree panoramic views are truly breathtaking. With views stretching 25 miles it is an incredible journey spotting London's famous streets, churches, palaces and monuments spread out below in a panoramic scene grown up from Roman times.
For a completely different perspective consider a night flight. Visit the Eye after dark and you will enjoy spectacular panoramic views of London with stunning buildings. Alternatively, visit at sunset and see the skyline awash with vibrant colours and the city's lights come on during your 30 minute flight. As the River Thames weaves its way through the heart of London there is history around every bend.
During the day, you both can enjoy the Thames Cruise ship and your ticket allows you to jump on and off as much as you like and the piers provide easy access to London's most famous sites like Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, Tate modern Art Gallery, Tower of London, Tower Bridge and many more...
Eating or drinking is not permitted in the London Eye capsule. Guests may be subject to a security search before enjoying their flight. There is no commentary on board the cruise. The London Eye has full disabled access.
The weather does not play a role for this experience although in very extreme weather like snow or heavy rain, the London Eye might be closed. If this is the case, you will rebook for another time and date.
Your flight will last 30 minutes but your cruise is just hop-on and hop-off throughout the day!
