We’d never seen this on previous trips to London and my teenagers loved their ride on the StarFlyer with great views of the Thames and surrounds. Yes it’s expensive for a few minutes but great fun!

A ridiculously short ride for the money we paid (£8 each) and the staff attitude was terrible. Overall we felt totally ripped off. Avoid!

This place is a very tourist-y attraction on London's South Bank. We went on the Carousel- it was £2.50 each for about a 3/4 minute ride, which was alright. Nice views but nothing much really to offer.

We paid 8 pounds for around a 60 second ride you blink and its over really not worth the money and definitely do not recommend.

We paid £8 per person, and the ride lasted mere seconds... I think we counted a total of four revolutions up in the air. Don't waste your money... rider beware.

Wow, £16 for two people for at most 45 seconds in the air? I have travelled the world and am embarrassed as a Londoner that such an attraction exists to rip off visitors.... If you want to see London from above maybe book a Ryanair...More

What an incredible night, these guys are fantastic! Lots of laughs and oodles of talent. We came out with great memories, a CD of excellent original music and a brilliant bearded woman t-shirt. Highly, highly recommended to all for a fun, exciting, original night out!

We were at The Udderbelly for opening night last night and what a great show we saw. Don’t miss Circus Abyssinia! The act was just amazing.

Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the
reasons that Southbank is such a collectively
cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly
activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized
river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo
Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and
