Hands up how many of you have NOT been to the London Eye
I have been in London for a while and figured i would do the Tourist thing with some overseas friends.Blending in with a loud Texan crowd and a very glamarous Russian Teenager - I bought my ticket and went to see what all the fuss was about.
the capsules give a rather good view of Big Ben, Westminster and you can catch a decent view of St Pauls and teh Gherkin. I went at about sunset 840 pm so it was fairly pleasant.
minuses- you cant see the Tower Bridge because of the bend in the river
Its about 12 fifity but I do suspect you may get a better view from the Monument or St Pauls.
