Magnificent view

Magnificent view during night, the best spot to visit if you want to have a great view of the town and relax. However if you afraid of heights don't try it.

Did this at dusk and the views were amazing. My husband was very apprehensive as he doesn't like small spaces but the pods are very big so was ok and even he enjoyed it. Would recommend it.

Choose a clear day or evening to get the best views. There are many other attractions close by as well on London's South Bank. An easy walk from Westminster or Waterloo stations.

Second time on the London Eye and it doesn't disappoint. Queues can get quite long so worth investing in a fast pass ticket.

We had some time to kill and my son wanted a ride, so we all went around on the Eye. It was expensive but we checked it off the list early in the trip. The views are great, especially of Parliament. Didn't have much of a line in November.

Staying in Southbank

Neighbourhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
