We were invited* for a family day out at EDF Energy London Eye.
This was a great day out even with little ones in tow.
London has so much to offer that little and big ones will be mesmerised by the amazing views from EDF Energy London Eye
Here is what we thought of our visit:
- For best ticket prices, buy them online. You can sometimes find special 2 for 1 offers. Children under 4 go free but do require a ticket. There is also the option of fast track tickets which we received and this was great with kids, which meant less time queuing. Please note the price for fast track are slightly more expensive than the standard tickets.
- Long queues. As with any London attractions expect long queues depending on when you are visiting. Once you have purchased your ticket, you then you join another queue to get into your capsule at your chosen ticket time.
- Children. If you are travelling with little ones, give yourselves extra time to get on board. All prams must be folded completely flat and all items removed before taking them on board. There is baby changing facility near the ticket office. If you are going with a baby in tow, a baby carrier would be highly suggested as it would avoid all the folding and holding. Also, only small day size rucksacks and bags can be taken on board in the capsule.
- The view. Once on board, expect to see stunning panoramic views including the capital’s best-loved landmarks, such as Buckingham Palace and Big Ben. Get your cameras charged and ready, and don’t be shy to ask the person next to you for a family picture to capture the moment.
- FREE 4D Experiece. Visitors to the EDF Energy London Eye also have free tickets to the incredible 3D short film about the London Eye. This is great for little ones which including wind, bubbles and mist which add a breathtaking fourth dimension, finishing with the famous New Year’s Eve fireworks!
- Rain or shine. The EDF Energy London eye can be enjoyed in winter as much as in summer. Each of the capsules is weatherproof and fully climate controlled.
- Food. South Bank just a stroll away has a variety of restaurants with a wide range of food.
- Fact 1. Did you know that it took seven years and the skills of hundreds of people from five countries to make the London Eye a reality?
- Word of advice. Do not board the London Eye if you are afraid of heights.
