See London from above, on one of the world's tallest observation wheels, the London Eye offering breathtaking views of the city and its famous landmarks. Go on an inspiring journey of discovery that brings London to life through multi-sensory special effects at the London Eye 4D Experience.
At 135 meters (over 442 feet), the London Eye is one of the world's tallest observation wheels, offering breathtaking views of London and its famous landmarks. Discover London with new interactive guides powered by Samsung Galaxy Tab and take the London Eye 4D Experience, an inspiring journey of discovery that brings London to life through multi-sensory special effects.
The London Eye offers breathtaking views of London from high above the River Thames. See Big Ben towering above the Houses of Parliament, follow St. James Park as it sweeps down to Buckingham Palace. Is the Queen at home? You'll spot the flag flying if she is. Relax in one of the 32 high-tech glass capsules and enjoy the London skyline at your leisure.
Within each capsule, six touch screens powered by Samsung Galaxy Tab allow you to explore the capital's landmarks, using the latest technology to bring your spectacular panoramic views to life. The guides provide a more interactive way to take in the capital's best sights and are available as part of the standard ticket price. Features include key information about famous London landmarks, 24 hour time-lapse photography, 360 degree day and night views from the London Eye as well as a unique look inside some of the structures for a unique perspective.
The London Eye 4D Experience is a groundbreaking 3D film with in theater effects, such as wind, bubbles and mist, to make the 4D. The film itself is a touching story of a little girl in London with her father. Her view of famous London landmarks is obscured by people and traffic, but a seagull draws her attention to the London Eye and her visit finally gives her an amazing view of the city. Colorful parties inside the capsule, time lapse of the London Eye day and night and a spectacular firework display all add up to an emotional and entertaining experience; the perfect prelude to the London Eye itself.
A Standard Ticket on the London Eye lasts for approximately 30 minutes, the time it takes for the London Eye to revolve completely. At weekends, during Bank Holidays and during school holidays the London Eye is at its most popular. Pay a little more and you could save a lot of time! Fast Track tickets for the London Eye allow you to bypass part of the queue, and get your tickets just 15 minutes before your experience.

Firstly, the view is unbelievable !...r /> Secondly, your service is very good and he helped us very much . more
this was a treat for me and my grandsons mainly for me. I always wanted to ride the eye my wife who was disabled had no wish to ha...ve the ride. Sadly she died in February so I asked the grandsons if they would come with me they agreed and the rest is history. A wonderful trip exceeded my expectations and the grandsons enjoyed it. After the ride and eats from Mc Donalds we took the open bus tour and boat trip both very enjoyable. We completed this and decided that this was enough so we made our way back to Waterloo and caught our train home and every one agreed a most enjoyable day made by having used you to book the London eye and having priority to get on the Eye made a good trip, a superb trip thanks to you it could not be improved thank you. I have no pictures at all. more

Quick and easy to use
Great service and events
I recently booked to go on the London Eye through the City Discovery site. It was very easy to book, the prices were good and ever...ything went smoothly. It was well worth the extra cost for flexible fast track tickets as we did not need to wait in the cold and just got straight on. more
Brilliant, came with my Daughter and Granddaughter they enjoyed it too would definitely come again. Stopped at an excellent Hotel.... Definitely be back. more
Ordering is quick and easy so very satisfied. Prices quoted and paid in $AU. Information provided for each activity is comprehensi...ve. Responded very quickly to a post-payment query that I had. Very happy and highly recommend to other travellers. Only issue I had was one of the vouchers indicated in bold red that all I need to do was present this voucher at the activity to gain entrance BUT further down on the same voucher it said an e-ticket would be emailed and the e-ticket must be presented to enter the attraction - I could have easily missed this plus also a problem if leaving home to travel overseas many weeks before scheduled activity and before e-ticket is emailed not realising one is being emailed because voucher says all I need to present is the voucher! (apologies if I have not articulated that properly). more
Very good 5*

I accidently booked the tickets for my son not realising his name needed to be the main keader. I emailed and the tickets were ame...nded within 12 hours.thank you more
Really good experience would recommend to everyone xx
The London Eye was the highlight of our stay in London. We went there the evening of the day we arrived, and our tickets were read...y, we bypassed the long line waiting around sunset time and we enjoyed spectacular views of the Thames and the City!! The cabin was much larger than we thought and we could walk around and enjoy different views. Lots of tourists were kind enough to take our picture together.Afterwards we walked to Skylon restaurant where we enjoyed a lovely dinner. more
We had a fab time. All very easy at the time we went. Thank you
I am very impressed with the Lady whom I phoned who was very helpful in sending me the confirmation of the tickets for the London... Europe eye. more

Good and pleasant experience. Enjoyed it. Better to have a flexi pass and beat the queue, I did.
great view over London. Fast track is a must if you do not want to queue up for an hour or more, even though you still have to que...ue up (at that day 20 min.) more
Was very nice...there was no wait.
The fast track entrance is a must at the London Eye. It saved a lot of time and made everything easier!

Well worth it!
Well worth it!
We didn't have to wait in any line...just marched right up and got on the Eye. My son got a pair of binoculars to enjoy the s...cenery, also. We really enjoyed the experience. Thanks! more
was very good we didnt have to queue to long
My children absolutely loved it! I had to stay sorted the entire time as it made me feel a little odd... Although I wasn't ex...pecting it too as it moves so slowly. Good views across London, may have been better on a sunny day but the weather cannot be helped. All in all we are glad we have done this. more
Every went smooth and fine. The only think is the pod was overcrowded, we could enjoyed it better with less people inside.
Easy to exchange the voucher for the ticket - there was a queue for the attraction but it moved quite quickly. Visited when it was... dark, great views, would recommend. more
