See the city with the London Eye and Thames river cruise combo ticket
A multitude of attractions makes London a place you must visit at least once. The city is a top tourist destination, attracting around 30 million visitors every year. However, it can be difficult to explore it all in just one visit. If you are on a short tour of London, you can make the most out of it by purchasing the London Eye and river cruise tickets.
This combo pass is a boon to those wanting to see London in its entirety within a short time. During your visit, enjoy two views of the city – from up above and from down on the river – and learn the history and significance of the city’s landmarks while having fun.
Amazing views from Europe’s tallest observation wheel
Located on the South Bank of London’s River Thames is a cantilevered observation wheel called the London Eye. From it, you can watch over the busy capital of England. Over 3.75 million people visit the Eye annually, making it the most famous paid tourist attraction in the UK.
The structure stands at an astonishing 443 feet, while the diameter of its wheel is 394 feet. It offers an awe-inspiring view of the capital city to as far as Windsor Castle – forty kilometres away – on a clear day! The London Eye comprises thirty-two air-conditioned passenger capsules. They are numbered 1 to 33 and exclude #13 for superstitious reasons. Each of the capsules weighs 10 tonnes and represent the 32 London Boroughs. They are fitted with audio guides, allowing you to explore London’s top sights in multiple languages.
Another fun inclusion is the London Eye 4D Cinema. It is the first produced 4D live-action film in the UK, showing the first 3D aerial photography over the city. Immerse yourself in an entertaining four-minute movie, also included with your ticket. Remember to visit the Eye Lounge for a relaxing glass of chilled cocktail or champagne, too.
A view from the Thames
One of the best ways to discover London is on a hop-on-hop-off River Thames cruise. Just like the London Eye, it covers all the most famous riverside sights in the capital. The Houses of Parliament, The Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Big Ben, MI6 Headquarters and the London Eye itself are just a few of the landmarks visible during the cruise.
What makes the cruise special is that it provides a different perspective of the city, as well as an excellent sightseeing experience. Equipped with an onboard bar, you can quench your thirst and hunger with a large stock of food and beverages. Board the cruise from any of the given locations – London Eye Pier, Westminster Pier, Greenwich Pier and Tower Pier.
The London Eye and river cruise is a great way to enjoy the city’s grandeur, as well as discovering its rich history. So, if you want to see as much of London as possible, the tickets ensure maximum value.
