Coca-Cola London Eye
The Coca-cola London Eye is the tallest observation wheel in the world, standing at 135 meters tall. It is located on the River Thames and gives you a one of a kind view of London’s ever-growing skyline. You can see almost all the popular attractions from the eye including Big Ben and The Shard. Since the wheel was constructed in 2000, it has become an iconic sight of London, winning awards for tourism, architecture quality and engineering.
Since the London Eyes is very popular, the lines can usually be very long especially during the peak times of sunset and evening, as the view is most spectacular then. To avoid a part of the queue, you can book online for fast track tickets.
If heights and waiting in line don’t appeal to you, then there are plenty of other locations offering views of London’s skyline, including rooftop bars and restaurants in buildings such as The Shard.
