I Went On The Wheel On The 14th October The View From It Is Something Else I'm Glad That This Year It's Still Up As Last Year I Discovered It Had Already Been Taken Down Only Down Side Is The Weather But That Can't Be Helped

You get a great view all across Torbay from the wheel to as far away as Paignton and Brixham. Lots to see and do at the bottom immediate area as well. A great part of an afternoon out.

Two adults and 1 child...(who was fidgety and not interested after a few minutes) on the wheel. It lasts 12 minutes and you do see some nice views. There is a photo opportunity but we passed on this. No queues so we got on straight away.

I'm scared of heights but really wanted to do this with my husband for the great views we'd get. We just turned up around tea time on a Saturday afternoon and were able to get on without a prior booking. It cost us £6 each and as it wasn't busy we got a pod to ourselves which was a great... More

Went in evening. Good views over the bay and Torquay. Price of 6 pounds well worth it for two leisurely rotations of the wheel

We have reviewed previously and mentioned about the fact you only get two revolutions and it's not cheap so nothing has improved but we did do a night ride which was great to see Torquay at night and the great variety of lights . I do enjoy seeing the wheel at Torquay but not sure if it's as popular as... More

Efficient friendly staff, with an easy system for wheelchair accessibility (one of the pods has wider doors than the others). Two tours round which was good, as it took one to get used to it! Terrific views.

Did not like this Eye at all. Gaps in the doors made it feel unsafe. Cost £6 per adult £5 concession (me). Went round twice. Could not wait to get off!

Although a bit wary of heights, wanted to have a ride on the English Riviera wheel. The views are amazing, particularly the harbour. Reasonably priced for two rotations of the wheel. Probably best to do it on a clear day to gain the best views
