London by Night from the London Eye

Hi guys, it is some days that we are thinking of sharing with you some adventures of our trip to London. So today we want to talk about our experience at the London Eye.

The London Eye (or Millennium Wheel) is a Ferris wheel – typical symbol of the city – located in the south area of the River Thames. The structure opened at the end of 1999 and today it has become one of the most important attraction of London. With its 135 m height and 120 m diameter, it is the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe.

Quick guide to the London Eye

Tickets: you can buy the tickets directly there or you can book them here

Opening hours: the Ferris wheel’s opening time is variable according to the period of the year. You can check it here

How to reach it: the closest tube stations are Waterloo, Embankment, Charing Cross, and Westminster.

We decided to go to the London Eye in the evening, so that we were able to have a look at the entire city with the night-lights. After the experience, we realized that we actually chose the best time! Have a look at our gallery!

    I lived in the UK for a little over 4 years and I tried to get out to London when I could. It was about a 20 minute drive or so to the tube station and an hour ride in. I never got to experience riding the Eye though I did venture all around the center of the city there. It's so beautiful during the winter holidays too!

    The London Eye is one of my bucket list items! Thanks for the tip about making sure I see it at night - I'm taking a note now to ride the eye twice!

    I went on the London Eye when I was over in London recently, and we went smack-bang in the middle of the day. It was ridiculous - the line was huge and it was so hot out! If I go again, I will definitely go at night. It sounds STUNNING, plus it'd be nice and chilly.

    We weren't able to go on the London Eye when we were in London. I would love to go back and try it. Your pictures are fabulous!

    When I visited London with my mom, we bought the tickets in advance to avoid the lines, and we still had to stay in a line for about 40 min (it was some "shorter" line for those who bought tickets in advance). The view was amazing at the day time, but I think would be great to see London in the night too!

    It is a dream to visit London and see the theatre scene. When I do visit, I will be looking out for a good guide. Can you suggest one?

    Would love to visit London some day! It was just announced this week that Montreal (my city) will be getting its very own "London Eye" this coming June - they are currently constructing the ferris wheel at the Old Port!

    Your photos are incredible. I was in London for a month several years back and I did love the city. It's too bad I didn't make it to the eye though.

    London Eye looks like a fun place to visit. I don't know if I can do really high Ferris wheel bc I'm afraid of heights.

    I've wanted to go on the London Eye for ages but hadn't got around to it. Your post has inspired me to look into booking a trip!

    The London Eye does look rather beautiful at night I agree. I have only been on during the day but I bet it would be more fun at night x

    Wow this looks stunning! In Orlando we had the Orlando eye placed here not too long ago and I didn't realize there was one in London. I can't wait to travel abroad and check it out!

    We have been on the London Eye a few times, but never at night. We have been on the emirates line at night and the view was amazing.

    Would be a lovely sight to see. I'm terrified of heights but I wouldn't be able to resist riding it.
