There are several options to access the mythical London Ferris wheel depending on the time and money you want to spend:

  • The single ticket for the London Eye, which starts at $39, is the cheapest. Of course, you will have to wait in line for access. I recommend you to buy your ticket online and in advance.
  • The fast-track ticket for the London Eye, from $62 €, is ideal if you have a flexible budget and value your time. You can book a time to access the Ferris wheel and, thus, better organize your trip. This option is also very interesting for families with children, as you will enter the cabin faster and it is a detail to take into account so that the kids do not get tired or impatient.

Since the London Eye is one of the main attractions in London, there are tickets that combine the ride with another experience, so you can save a little money.

Regarding the bus tour, you can make two routes, one of about 1 hour and 20 minutes, or the most complete of 2 hours and 30 minutes.

And the most complete option and my favorite, in which you will have the chance to know everything essential of this wonderful city: the tour of London and tickets for the London Eye. An experience of no more and no less than 10 hours, in which you will be accompanied by a professional guide.

That's right! If you are planning to spend several days in London and you are thinking of buying a tourist card, a visit to the London Eye is included with both the London Pass and the London Explorer Pass.

Buying one of these tourist passes is a good idea if you are going to be in London for at least 4 days and you want to do a lot of activities during your stay in London. Thanks to them you will not only save money over the price of the tickets for each attraction separately, but you will also save time as they allow a quicker access to them.

To learn more about these tourist passes, I recommend you read the post The best tourist card in London where each one is analyzed in detail so you can choose the one that suits you best.

The London Eye is located in the heart of London, so it won't cost you anything to get there if you go for a walk for example in the area of Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster.

However, if you prefer to go there by public transport you can also do it because it is located in a very well connected area. In my opinion, the subway is the fastest way to get there (the nearest station is Waterloo) and the price of a single ticket costs from 6 € depending on the area where you move.

Since the price of public transport is a bit high in London, if you want to save money on your trips around the city I advise you to get the Oyster Card (rechargeable card that lowers the price of the single ticket) or the Travelcard (a card for unlimited use for a period of time). If you are going to be moving around a lot, you also have the option to book a seat on the London sightseeing bus.
