Amazing! 4.2/5 Expedia Guest Rating View all 22 Expedia Verified Reviews

Fly high above the slow-moving waters of the Thames for a bird's-eye vantage point over London's historical landmarks and modern architecture. Take in far-reaching views of St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London on this relaxed revolution over the British metropolis.

Start your experience as you snag a seat at the London Eye 4D film. Hold on while you soar above the capital in a ground-breaking, multi-sensory film experience replete with dramatic in-theatre special effects of wind, snow, and mist—the perfect prelude to your real ride on the wheel.

Next, board one of the London Eye’s 32 glass-lined capsules and slowly swoop a circular 443 feet (135 metre) into the air. Gaze over the tranquil waters of the River Thames, iconic Big Ben—recognisable by its 4-faced chiming clock and spire—and the 19th-century, Gothic grandeur of Parliament. Keep your eyes peeled for the Royal Standard flag flying above Buckingham Palace—the indicator that the Queen is at home. Delve a bit deeper into structures that strike your fancy with the capsule's 6 touchscreen tablets. At the tippy top—if clear skies are on your side—you can see as far as 25 miles (40 km) away.

Yes printing of the vouchers was a big hassle

Why can’t you provide phone scannable vouchers. It cost me £7.40 to get print besides 45 minutes searching for Internet cafe to get the prints. Your early booking was of no help instead it turned out to be A problem.
