The London Eye sounds cliche but it is a must for me while in London. It is located about 14 minutes walking distance from the University of London, so fairly close. Transit is also an option for getting there.
It would be beautiful to see the city from the top of this ferris wheel. Also, can you go to London without stopping at the London Eye?
Tickets seem to be fairly cheap. You can preorder tickets online for a discount, but it seems like it would be easier to just pay there since the conversions are confusing over the internet. Options include daytime and nighttime availability. Each ride lasts 30 minutes. So if you’re not afraid of heights and want to see the city from above, you should plan to come with me 🙂
