It was lovely, the cabins had less people in them due to covid restrictions, I'm scared of heights but still enjoyed this. Only negative is that the price of photos is quite high

Lost access to my previous account so might be leaving this review twice within minutes! Great day out. It’s a little pricey but as a one off it’s a nice experience. My friend and I went early evening when the night sky is particularly well lit. I would highly recommend!

I liked the idea of it, seeing London from above, but the price for only seeing the buildings and the river is just ridiculious. If you're going alone I think it's not that bad, but if you're going with family you'll need to empty your pocket. They also take pictures of you, in case you wanted to buy some, with also cost way too much. Also it says the trip last for 40min, which in our case was not true. At least 15min less than stated. I would never go there again and I would not recommend for anyone, unless they really love London. ✌

Quite expensive but nice for a one off if you’re looking for a day out in London. Recommend for that reason. Amazing views! Evenings when London is lit up make for a better experience in my view!

The experience at London eye was amazing. The team had taken great precautions in order not to spread Covid. Not more than 7-8 people are allowed in one capsule/wagon (not sure what to say :( ). It is sanitized before boarding & is sanitized as soon as we get off so that next set of people can board safely. The view, temperature within it, safety precautions, team was all good & more than satisfactory. All those who are interested in buying physical photos - they are being priced at £20 for 2 and £25 for 3 pictures. I think its same for all the 5 attractions at London.
