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!
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!
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.
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!

What People Are Saying About London Eye
The staff were so helpful and kind. They got a chair for my disabled mum and made sure she got on the boat first. Very friendly and extremely relaxing. Would definitely recommend
the instruction ran it was optional I may only add that we enjoyed all of our activities
The only thing was that I purchased my tickets on line and down loaded the app only to have to queue at the book office. I would have though you would have a scanner to just be able to scan and avoid all of that to make purchasing the tickets on line a worthwhile option.
I took my mum here as she loves horses and the royal family. It was great to get up close to the coaches and see the amazing craftsmanship that has gone into them. We also got to see two beautiful grey's and two bays in the stables which made my mum very happy
Great Thames trips love it, the narration from the crew was funny, though obviously very well rehearsed, only real gripe is the silver buckets being pushed forward on exiting the boats, the trips are priced high enough, if you use the boat all day, its really good exiting value, but the silver bucket could add £10 to £20 to your day, as a Cornish pensioner I can tell you that this a lot to give away.
