London Eye ticket prices: MP calls on Government to intervene

Barry Sheerman, Labour MP for Huddersfield, asked the culture secretary Karen Bradley "if she will take steps to encourage the operators of the London Eye to increase the affordability of that attraction's prices for lower income families".

An adult ticket for the London Eye purchased on-the-day at the South Bank costs 24.95, with a child ticket priced at 19.95. Some discounts are available for online booking.

Junior minister Tracey Crouch replied: "Tourism should be accessible for all however it is not for us to intervene in the pricing strategies of private organisations and their attractions.

"We believe in the benefits of free access for all to permanent collections of national museums and galleries."
