The London Eye and the Tower of London: Two great attractions with one ticket!
The Tower of London and the Coca-Cola London Eye are two of London’s must-see attractions, offering glimpses into the city’s past and present. While the Tower exhibits the rich history of British royalty, the Eye is an impressive modern marvel. Explore both sides of London, gaining entry to both iconic landmarks with the London Eye and Tower of London tickets.
Take flight on Europe’s tallest observation wheel
The London Eye, first launched in March 2000, is situated within London’s South Bank by the River Thames. It attracts almost four million visitors per year, making it the most popular paid tourist attraction in the UK. The Eye is also the tallest observation wheel in Europe, standing at the height of 443 feet, and is arguably the best place to witness stunning panoramic views of London.
London attractions visible from the Eye include the Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben, the Shard, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace. On a clear day, riders can even see as far as Windsor Castle, roughly 40 kilometres away! With a duration of thirty minutes, a flight on the London Eye provides incredible views throughout the day. So step aboard for a truly unforgettable experience.
The Tower of London: A millennium of history
Founded by William the Conqueror in 1066, The Tower of London sits on the North Bank of the River Thames in central London. It has a rich royal history and became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988.
During your visit, wander the battlements and visit the notorious Bloody Tower – an infamous prison within the castle walls. Meet the Ravens and learn the beliefs and superstitions regarding their continued residence. The White Tower – arguably the world’s most famous castle keep – has its own dark history. Iconic and recognisable, it contains the 11th Century chapel of St John the Evangelist. On the top floor, you can find an original executioner’s block and axe, while its basement is thought to be a site of torture and interrogation of notable figures such as Guy Fawkes.
Tickets to the Tower include access to the Crown Jewels exhibition, housing a world-famous collection of royal regalia. The showcase boasts over 23,000 precious gemstones, including items still used in royal ceremonies today. Yeoman Warders – also known as ‘Beefeaters’ – run guided tours of the Tower every thirty minutes. These tours, also included in your ticket, provide further insight into the Tower’s history. To join the tour, meet at the starting point near the entrance, and listen to their tales of intrigue.
London Eye and Tower of London tickets significantly reduce the queue times for both attractions, leaving you with more time to explore the city. So, make the most of your time in the capital and visit both top attractions with the convenience of one ticket.
