One of London’s most iconic modern landmarks and the world’s highest observation wheel (135 metres), the London Eye offers far-reaching aerial views of the city and beyond – as far as Windsor castle on a clear day – and is a must-do attraction in fine weather.
The slowly rotating pods have a maximum capacity of 25, ensuring great views for every passenger on the half hour flight.
Tickets from £19.20 for adults and £12.30 for children.
Nearest tube station: Westminster
