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!

Great way to see London from every angle!

The cruise was perfect - loved seeing London from the water, and the girl commentating was hilarious! The London Eye gave the completely different perspective from the air, and we loved every angle unfolding as we got higher and higher (especially the view of Buckingham Palace) and enjoyed the fact that they didn't cram too many people into the carriage. The wait in line was a little while (maybe 20 mins) but it moved quickly and let's face it, in the depths of summer you can't expect anything less! Thanks for a great experience!

It’s really the coolest way to see London

I was a bit shocked at the length of the queue when arriving. In reality the queue moved very quickly and we were soon loaded and lifting gently into the air. Really a pleasant experience affording great views over Westminster. Tip. There were very long queues for toilets at the ticket office. Just down toward lambert bridge there is another toilet facility with no queue

Beautiful view, but damn that queue was shocking

We really enjoyed the view, thankfully the weather was beautiful for a view, sunny and not so much windy. Only thing that surprised me was the need to choose exact time when purchasing the tickets, as the queue was so huge. We got at the cabin few minutes after we had the tickets, so it was okay.

Skip the line tickets for the London Eye

Don’t miss this activity. A great way to see all of London and an entertaining ride. Skip the line tickets were definitely worth it and the can scan right from your phone. Super easy. You can buy pictures and souvenirs at the shop after and there is a park with playground nearby.

Excellent guide, great knowledge, fun to listen to. Our guy provided information customized to our questions. He was giving us information that we never would’ve even thought of. It was a great experience for my entire family. I highly recommend this to anyone.
