Travel Thursday: The London Eye

When I was doing research for our Europe trip a few years ago, a lot of travel books said you should skip the London Eye.  They called it "a tourist trap".  I couldn't disagree more.  Sure, it's a bit expensive at almost 30USD a ticket, but it is so worth it.

Where else can you see amazing views of London and ride a GIGANTIC ferris wheel?!?

No where.  That's what I thought.

  • Occasionally, the London Eye has different events.  For example, they're having a bunch of Easter activities in April.  Always make sure you check the website before you visit just to see if there is something you might be interested in. 
  • Go at sunset or right before the sun sets like we did.  You cannot beat how beautiful the sky is at that time.
  • You can get ticket packages that include champagne...perfect for a gentleman trying to impress his lady.
  • If you take one of the double decker tour buses the first day you're in London, many of them stop right by the London Eye.  It really rounds out your day of basic sightseeing!
