The London Eye

Staying in a hotel near the London Eye gives you unrivalled access to one of the highest structures in London, which took hundreds of people from all over the globe 7 years to build and shows almost 3.5 million people the stunning views over the city every year. It is situated on the southern bank of the Thames and is currently the highest public viewing point in London. Book a London Eye hotel in advance as it is the most popular paid tourist destination in the UK and remains the third-tallest Ferris Wheel in the world.

Things to do at the London Eye

When the sun is shining and the sky is clear, visitors to The Eye can see as far as the Queen's favourite residence, Windsor Castle, a whopping 25 miles away. Look across the cityscape and take in the genius of Christopher Wren whose mark is stamped across the capital. Face east for St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, some of the city's most iconic and popular landmarks, or you could look north towards Highgate and hilly Hampstead. You can also make out the green dome of the British Library where Marx researched 'Das Kapital.' An after-dark 'flight' is a completely different experience and should be tried by everyone, whether tourists or Londoners. The capital is transformed into a chain of winking lights, linking the modernity of the Post Office Tower to the gothic magnificence of the Houses of Parliament.

London Eye visitor tips

Save money by pre-booking your tickets. Due to the ferris wheel's popularity you will still have to queue unless you go the whole hog and treat yourself to priority-boarding tickets that allow you to turn up 15 minutes before your flight. It is always sensible to allow longer, particularly in peak summer periods when you should allow at least an hour.

Things to do around the London Eye

Its location next to the Thames, near the theatres of the South Bank complex, makes the Eye an ideal pre-show experience. The Palace of Westminster and Big Ben are a mere stone's throw away along the Embankment and always worth a visit from your London Eye hotel. Fans of 3D movies should pack some popcorn and head to the Imax Cinema just outside the famous Waterloo Station. Booking a hotel near the London Eye will give you easy access to some of the most famous of the UK's landmarks, so take a look around Westminster Abbey, burial ground for Britain's luminaries, or book a tour of the Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms to see the Whitehall basement where the great English wartime leader plotted and planned his victory against the Nazi war machine rumbling through the continent.


As the one of the world's most diverse and cosmopolitan cities, London has almost too much to offer in terms of eating out and places to drink. If you're peckish during your stay in a hotel near the London Eye, turn in any direction for world-class restaurants. For a tasty and substantial lunch, head to the hipster haven of Wahaca, to the right of Westminster Bridge, where you'll be served authentic Mexican food sat in arestaurant made of recycled shipping containers. For the Michelin-star experience, head to Quilon on Buckingham Gate for the best in south Indian food or pop to Covent Garden and make a reservation at L'Atelier De Joel Robuchon for prize-winning French cuisine. Shopping doesn't get much better than in London, whether you choose the hurly-burly of Oxford Street and Regent Street, two of the busiest main roads in the world, the cool glamour and traditional feel of Notting Hill's Portobello Road market, the trendy boutiques in Shorditch and Hoxton, or the credit-card-spanking shops of super classy Knightsbridge. Book a London Eye hotel and get access to all that London has to offer. The capital of the UK and perhaps the world's most cosmopolitan city on the planet guarantees you a wonderful UK city break.
