Coca-Cola London Eye: Mum Report

Coca-Cola London Eye: Mum Report

The London Eye (or EDF Energy London Eye, as it’s officially called) is the world’s largest observation wheel and fourth highest structure in London. It rises majestically from the Jubilee Gardens on the South bank, 135 metres into the London skyline. From the highest point, you can see twenty-five miles in every direction giving a spectacular view of St. Paul’s Cathedral, Windsor Castle, Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster.


KidRated’s 5 Tips For Grown Ups:

1. The ride is about 30 minutes so plan your day around visiting some other attractions in the area like the Sea Life London Aquarium.

2. You can purchase a combination ticket that includes a boat ride.

3. Obviously the weather is unpredictable so check the forecast in advance as the trip is more memorable in clearer skies.

4. You can book in advance to avoid the long queues but even if you queue on the day the staff have queue management down to a fine art so it’s a pleasant wait.

5. The ride is smooth and slow so those with slight apprehension about the heights can ride with minimal stress.
