Take a spin on the London Eye


Over the last decade or so, the London Eye has become one of the city's most iconic landmarks for visitors to the city.

And the impressive structure is also the perfect way to see the sights of one of the world's most dynamic cities.

So, if you've got a trip to London planned in the next few months, then you'd be wise to book tickets for the Eye.

On a clear day, you can see as far as Windsor Castle, which is 25 miles away, as well as nearby landmarks like the Houses of Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral.

The Eye is, in fact, the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe and is officially the most popular tourist attraction in all of the UK, not just London.

It has also become a symbol for some of the big cultural events in London, such as the wedding of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, when the Eye was lit up in the colours of the Union Jack.

Likewise, the Eye was given a makeover during the Olympics and quickly became one of the iconic images of London during the Games.

Typically, you are able to walk up to the Eye and buy tickets on the day, but you'll save yourself some money if you book in advance.

Take your camera on the trip and you're sure to capture some great images.

Down on the banks of the Thames, meanwhile, you will find some great restaurants and bars that serve a wide variety of foods.

If you're keen on South American food, for instance, then Las Iguanas may be your thing, while you can enjoy some great tasting pizza at Strada.

So, if you're keen to get a bird's eye view of one of the most spectacular cities on earth, look no further than the London Eye.
