Seeing London through London's Eye

A last minute booking on my day in London.

The London Eye, or the Millennium Wheel, is a cantilevered observation wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. It is Europe's tallest cantilevered observation wheel at 135 metres and is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom with over 3 million visitors annually.

Making the booking on my phone half an hour before, I made my way past Westminster and Big Ben through the crowds to the London Eye.

The cost of the London Eye is similar to most attractions in London and big cities. I received a time slot and had to wait in line to board the London Eye at that time.

The line moved really quickly. Each capsule held up to 25 people. After security we could board our capsule.

The London Eye lifts you high enough to see up to 40 kilometres on a clear day as we climbed we saw this magnificent city unfold beneath us.

It doesn't take long to get immersed in the ever changing views and breathtaking views of London.
