Found 15th Nov 2011
At 135 metres, the EDF Energy London Eye is one of the world's tallest observation wheels, providing up to 40-kilometre of panoramic views on a clear day. The gradual rotation in one of the 32 high-tech glass capsules takes approximately 30 minutes, offering breathtaking views of London and its famous landmarks, such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, St Paul's Cathedral, 30 St Mary Axe ('The Gherkin'), Canary Wharf and so on. With those inspiring perspectives on offer, the London Eye will lift you up like nothing else.

This one comes and goes and it hasnt been around for a while i was having a look at the website this morning and low and behold its back! im off to london in feb so printed mine off!

If you aren't booking a timed slot do go early, the queues can be horrendous.

Thanks so much for the heads up ive never been so this is vital info!

nice find

going between xmas and new year for 3 days - the eye was pricey tbh, but not now - got some see life ones too!

Thanks OP

ALWAYS been asked for Rail Ticket when using their 2:1 offers at a variety of locations, but not visited The Eye.
That said in Birmingham was able to plan ahead and buy a £1.xx ticket at station to save £10+!

Quite right. I've been once and it started to pour down with rain just as I entered my pod. I felt robbed by the weather

Shame that you need rail tickets for this one. Can I also use London intern rail tickets, like from Victoria to Peckham or is there a minimum price limit for these tickets.

Thanks!

Went on sunday and used this voucher, they do ask for rail tickets at the counter for the voucher to be valid - just so you know! we went by train so no bother for us x

It's looking pretty clear today - at least the bit I can see from here is! Granted, the last week has been misty as anything!

It is a great ride on a clear day though, a cliched, touristy thing to do for sure but well worth it. Voted hot.

I've always been asked for rail tickets when using these 2 for 1 offers, they've been strict and wont accept Oyster cards either. I advise each person picks up the cheapest single rail fare they can on the day you are planning your visit.

Hot

Thanks

Whenever that happens in the smog-infested slum of Londonshire.

Am I the only one who thinks £18 to ride this thing is excessive? Yes, you don't HAVE to ride it, but still for a quick loop around that can't last more than a few minutes this costs as much as two cinema tickets.

They have been asking the rail ticket when I visited London a couple of months ago at all the attractions. So better be prepared. Unfortunately I couldn't get 2-4-1 on London eye and paid the full amount. Hot deal this.

It takes 30 minutes.
Personally I think it's great, offering fabulous views across London.

Precisely why i posted this deal at 9 quid each its a good deal! i was under the impression it lasted more than "a couple of minutes"

Actually, there are plenty of clear days. They're just not always predictable! And I'm not sure it's fair to categorise the entire city as a slum.



I agree it's not particularly cheap when expressed in those terms, but I doubt it compares badly to other top tourist attractions in big cities around the world.

I was literally about to prebook my tickets for this online at full price until I saw this. I'm going down to London (by train) at the weekend so this is perfect.

God I LOVE HUKD

Does the rail ticket have to be valid that day for the offer? For example, could a national rail ticket from Gatwick to London from a couple of days before be used.

Went on it last Saturday, though did the Champagne experience tour.

(Only difference is you get a host, glass of champers and queue is shorter as there is a separate line - but you pay about double the price for the privilege)

Thoroughly recommend the London Eye Experience.

Was slightly foggy, but smashing views, especially of Buckingham Palace, Horse Guard Parade, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament etc which are just across the Thames.

As a heads up, from what I could tell the 4D experience which they have near the Ticket Hall, don’t require tickets for (i.e you could walk of the street and see it)

It only last 5-10 minutes, however if you are passing that way and have a fear of heights, might be worth doing the 4D experience with your feet on the ground for free.

Bargain at this price!

I've been on it once, I liked it, yes it didn't solve any world wars, but it was a nice treat. Would go again... have signed myself up

Well worth it if you've never done it before.

Big wheel at Skeggy costs a quid and is much more fun. You can rock the chairs, take a bag of chips on with you and pelt them at the people on the ground. Mind you, we did get banned for that, and for sinking one of the boats on the lake. Ay ay ay calm down calm down.

Not really 2 4 1 - you NEED to have a travel card. so its 2 4 1 plus travelcard on the TITLE please

Great

Am hoping to spend a night in London when we go to Legoland in April with the kids so these will be very useful as we are travelling on the train. Thanks.

No you don't, you just need a train ticket.

Anyone know if the Megatrain/Megabus style tickets work for this? I don't see why they shouldn't, as they're valid National Rail tickets, but since they're just an A4 sheet that you print at home I could see that confusing the staff.

i was always told to look for the "crows feet" logo of national rail

if your ticket has that in the top corner then it should be good to use on this offer

i think i've been on about 3 times and i'd say its a great offer, worth going up during the day to see everything and then worth going up again at night so you can see everything lit up

And it has to be a national rail issued train ticket - i.e. not one issued within the TfL zones - i.e. one with the old British Rail style '=//=' symbol on them and not the TfL '-o-' "tube" symbol. We had 3 nights in London earlier in the year staying out at Kew and getting train in to Waterloo each day and fortunately I decided not to rely on 2-4-1 daysout discounts as (not really to my surprise) the tickets from there were issued by TfL and not national rail.

I wouldn't have thought so - they aren't valid National Rail tickets, they are issued by the train company on a separate system (hence why it's impossible to get them in the form of a normal orange ticket).

Nice

Does anyone know if travelling in from Heathrow airport on the train would qualify? When booking the ticket through the national rail website, it takes me through to First Great Western. Is this a valid Nationa Rail ticket?

I was thinking exactly the same, even if the ride lasts 30 minutes.

But at £9 each this is a good deal.

nice one
