Since the beginning, taking a ride on the London Eye has been on my “to-do” list. First, the trip in the eye is well worth it, and I highly recommend anyone visiting London to take it. My two other pieces of advice regarding the London eye are this:
- If you’re traveling to London before August 31, save yourself some pounds and find the coupons for Buy-One-Get-One tickets, print one out here, or find one of the people [they are all around London] handing out fliers that will save you money.
- Take the London Eye at night. There is nothing like seeing this beautiful city lit up once the sun goes down.
