The largest Ferris Wheel in Europe offers great views of London from its 135 meters high and say that the best time to visit is in the sunset or at night to see the city lights. It was inaugurated in 2000 and is sponsored by Coca-Cola, contains thirty-two capsules quite spacious, air conditioned and with information (in several languages) about what we are seeing. You do need to find the ideal time to “embark” because the queues are extensive but from our experience they go fast.
The ticket is bought on the building that is on the left side of the Ferris wheel, we made the mistake of buying a combined with the Madame Tussaud (error because we did not save money or escaped the queues). After purchasing the tickets we watched a 4D film about the London Eye following a seagull flying through the city.
It was about twenty minutes waiting to get inside one of their cocoons with about a dozen people and simply enjoy the view. South Bank, Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, skyscraper Shard are a part of what we see and how we went at sunset making it a more interesting touch. And what impressed me most was the stability of the cabin and I who am not the biggest fan of heights felt completely at ease, I would say it was one of the things I liked best in London.
