When I was in London last year, I didn’t go in the Eye because I figured it was too expensive. BUT, when an unexpected trip to London came up, I decided this was something I want to do. I mean, how many times will I be in London? Not only did we go, we paid extra for the express tickets. We didn’t want a once in a lifetime experience to be a bad one. The regular ticket line was sooo long, and we were jetlagged and hungry. So, the express tickets were what we wanted, and I don’t regret it. We went right up into the Eye, got some great views and pictures of London, and then it was all over after about a half hour. It’s really worth doing maybe just once unless you’re really afraid of heights.over 3 years ago
I visited the London Eye in the evening not long after it opened – not by design, we just left it a bit late to book our advance tickets! The first surprise is that the Eye doesn’t actually pause to let people get into the pods – it’s moving so slowly that there’s time for you to get on whilst it rotates.
The second was how completely different my hometown looks at night. There were the obvious viewpoints – the Canary Wharf tower twinkling in the east, the beautifully lit Houses of Parliament and Big Ben below. We were puzzling over an imposing building further downstream on the opposite bank and decided that it must be a previously unknown museum. It turned out to be Charing Cross station.
