Loved the view from the top. We took great pictures and had a lovely time. We also enjoyed a couple of cocktails

Went back in the summer and it was very busy. We got a drink and some expensive but cheap/poor quality food at the cafe and tried to find a seat but there were very few. A couple left so we darted over to grab the...More

It's stupidly expensive for this particular attraction ($80 for two people for a poor viewing platform and a 15-minute experience). The London Eye may not be as high as the Shard, but its a great view and a fun experience. This was just...disappointing.

This is the next London Eye of London and is located centrally. Take a tour to the top of the building and explore amazing views of London.

I came here with my friend on a Red Letter experience. Luckily we picked a bright, clear day and we were able to see for miles. The staff were very friendly and helpful - particularly when we couldn't locate iconic landmarks! Not sure I'd feel...More

Got some vouchers online for £20 entry. Minimal queues, straight through security and we were at the top all within 10 minutes of getting our tickets. Staff were excellent, all very friendly and cheery. Unfortunately due to icy conditions the observation deck on 72 was...More

Sorry folks but this viewing platform will likely only appeal to those who have never been to one before (just). If you have been to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, 30 Rock or the Empire State in NYC etc then you are going to be...More

First of all you need patience to queue for the tickets and going up. Otherwise, great view expected. However if it rains before your trip up to the top. There wil be rain splatters left on the glass.. marring your view. We did a night...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

They are not too bad if you're a few minutes late. My suggestion would be to call them while you're on route to the hotel. Their number is 03444997222 (not a premium number). If you're from outside the UK you need to dial... More

If you dont get out of the lift when you get to the top, and go straight back down to the exit, its simply a ride up and back down at 6 floors a second lol
