Top Tips

1. For more information about what you’re seeing on your trip on the London Eye, check out the touch screen information pads in each pod. They’ll help you find all the most important landmarks.

2. The London Eye isn’t a Ferris wheel - because the capsules are only supported by an A-frame on one side, it’s technically a “cantilevered observation wheel”. While it was the highest wheel of any kind when it open in 2000, there are now taller wheels in Nanchang, Singapore, and Las Vegas. Since those are all proper Ferris wheels, the Coca-Cola London Eye now claims to be the tallest cantilevered observation wheel in the world.

3. The Coca-Cola London Eye is one of the most popular attractions in London and lines to visit can get extremely long. To avoid them, book tickets ahead of time, and in summer and during holidays you might prefer to book fast track tickets. Other ways to avoid the lines are to visit before noon because that’s when the site is least busy. If you’re visiting in summer the London Eye will be open until late in the evening. It’s also less busy then, plus you’ll get to see the city lights.
4. The Coca-Cola London Eye was originally called the Millennium Wheel and was opened on December 31, 1999 - though it then stayed closed until March 2000 while further improvements were made. It was originally going to be a temporary attraction which was planned to close after its five-year lease ran out. That lease was extended in 2002 and it’s been a major part of the London skyline ever since!
5. The 32 capsules of the London Eye are meant to represent the 32 London boroughs, but you’ll notice they’re numbered 1-33. Why? Apparently, superstitious Londoners have decided to leave out number 13 (just in case). Capsule number 2 has also been renamed the Coronation Capsule in honor of the 60th anniversary of Queen E II’s coronation in 1953.
6. After your visit to the London Eye, make sure to explore the rest of the South Bank. You’ll find many more attractions (many of which can be included in combo-tickets with the London Eye), such as the London Dungeon, SEA LIFE London Aquarium, and Shrek’s Adventure. The South Bank is also home to a beautiful, leafy walkway which takes you all the way past the Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe and ends at the tempting food stalls of Borough Market. It’s the perfect place for a romantic stroll along the river, especially as night falls.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I see from the Coca-Cola London Eye?

The London used to be the tallest observation point in London until the Shard opened its observation deck, and from the top, you’ll get a fantastic view of the most iconic buildings in London. To the east, you’ll see St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, and the shining tower of the Shard, and Nelson’s Column, Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament to the west. On a clear day, you can see 25 miles (40 km)!

What’s the 4D experience?

The 4D Cinema experience was the first live action 4D attraction film produced in the UK and feature the first 3D aerial photography taken over London. It’s about 4 minutes long and features light, wind, sound, and water effects. The light effects have been designed to be suitable for guests with photosensitive epilepsy. You don’t have to visit the 4D experience, but it’s included for free with every ticket and is a nice introduction to the attraction before you board.

How long does a visit take?

One rotation takes around 30 minutes, though it can take longer if other passengers need assistance to disembark and the wheel has to be stopped. Depending on the queues on the day and whether you’ve book fast track tickets, it’s recommended to plan at least an hour for your visit. It’s advised that you arrive about 30 minutes before your chosen timeslot (and maybe slightly earlier during busy holiday periods), and at least 45 minutes early if you’ve booked a champagne experience or a private capsule.

How many people fit inside a capsule?

The London Eye intends to board up to 28 guests in each capsule, and while that sounds like a lot there’s usually enough space for all visitors to move around the capsule and enjoy the views in all directions. There’s also a long bench in the middle of the capsule for guests who want to rest their legs.

Can you ride the Coca-Cola London Eye during the New Year’s Eve fireworks?

The London Eye has formed the center of London’s New Year’s Eve fireworks for several years, with watchers packing the North Bank and bridges to watch the action. The attraction is open on December 31 until 3 pm, but then it will close early to let engineers fit the fireworks for that night’s display. You can’t watch the fireworks from a capsule, and you probably wouldn’t want to anyway - all you’d see is smoke!
