What To Expect
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.
