More information about London Eye Standard Experience

The husband-and-wife team of Julia Barfield and David Marks of the firm Marks Barfield Architects designed the London Eye, which won the Institution of Structural Engineers Special Award in 2001, the year after the first passenger rode this famed Ferris wheel. Initially, the London Eye was intended to be a temporary attraction with a five-year lease, but immense popularity continued to attract visitors. Today, tens of millions of people have ridden this London icon.

Each passenger capsule, 32 in total, weighs ten tons and can carry 25 passengers. (Don’t worry, the capsules are numbered 1–33, with 13 being left out for superstitious reasons.) A must-see while in London, the Eye lets you experience the city with jaw-dropping views.

This cantilevered observation wheel sits on the South Bank of the Thames River, steps from the Golden Jubilee Bridge, National Theatre, and other hot destinations. However, what you’ll see on this one-of-a-kind ride will reach much farther than those tourist hubs: on a clear day, visitors can take in views more than two dozen miles away. The most popular paid tourist destination in the United Kingdom, the London Eye takes visitors on a stunning 30-minute ride and offers glorious views by day or night.

What to Watch For

  • From the London Eye, you can see all the way to Windsor Castle. On a clear, bright day, views from the top of the London Eye can stretch for almost 25 miles, offering the broadest panoramic views in London.
  • The London Eye is the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel. On the 30-minute ride, you can view Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, and so much more.
  • Discussing the enormous feat of this wheel and its impact on London and its visitors, Pritzker Architecture Prize winner Sir Richard Rogers wrote, “The Eye has done for London what the Eiffel Tower did for Paris, which is to give it a symbol and to let people climb above the city and look back down on it.”
