5 attractions you can see from the London Eye

Originally built as a temporary structure to mark the millennium, London's magnificent ferris wheel remains one of the city's best-loved attractions to this day. Here are a few other top landmarks to try spotting from its 135-meter peak!

St. Paul's Cathedral

St. Paul's Cathedral

Look north to see Christopher Wren's crowning achievement. St. Paul's Cathedral was the city's tallest building from 1710 to as recently as 1962!

Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace

Over the river to the west is another jewel of London's landmarks. Buckingham Palace is sandwiched between Big Ben and Hyde Park!

Tower of London & Tower Bridge

Tower of London & Tower Bridge

London's most famous bridge and castle can be seen downriver to the east. You'd be able to see Shakespeare's Globe, too, if the Tate Modern wasn't in the way!

Battersea Power Station

Battersea Power Station

London's sights mostly lie north of the river, but some of its more humble are to the south, such as the iconic Battersea Power Station and the Oval Cricket Ground.

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

On a clear day you can see as far as Windsor Castle. It's the longest-occupied palace in Europe, and for good reason, too, if it's grand enough to be spotted from 40km away!

Really enjoyed our trip to London and our package we purchased. We wanted to do the London Eye and hop on hop off bus - the river cruise was an additional extra thrown in and ended up being the highlight. We ended up walking most of the way around the city, only using the bus twice - both times to go just one stop. Magnificent views from the London Eye - but the cruise was just wonderful. We went from Tower Bridge to Westminster. The guy speaking was really funny and the facts super interesting. The baileys hot chocolate on board also delicious. Would absolutely recommend.

Good value for money however when we went to the first one they didn’t tell us how to or that we needed to book time slots for the rest of the attractions meaning there was no times left for most when we did find out (found out by trying to go to the next and got turned away) did mess our plans up a bit. It also doesn’t say anything about booking other time slots in the description or anything.

12 year old son loved the experience and wanted to do it again. Pod shared with another small family but able to socially distance with no issues. Great way to see the famous landmarks, except Tower Bridge, it cannot be seen
