The National Student's Summer Day Out at... the London Eye
Share This Article:
The London Eye is "must do" for any visit to the capital and with amazing panoramic views across Greater London and beyond it's the perfect day trip for this late summer. The iconic view of The Thames and the Houses of Parliament allows you to take as many photos as your heart desires during the 30-minute ride. Before boarding the Eye, make sure you visit the short 4D show which is a great intro to London's best attraction. For those that are scared of heights, don't worry! You feel so safe you don’t even feel like you are that high, and the construction of the Eye is so obvious and strong that it makes you feel safer than you ever would at that height anywhere else. To my surprise, after a moment of panic, I got on and the ride was great, extremely smooth and so slow I wasn’t even aware we were moving until we were above the buildings. And of course, the view that welcomes you at the top has no rival.
