Best Time to Visit the London Eye

  • The London Eye is almost always busy, considering how popular it is among tourists and locals alike. School holidays and peak holiday seasons are best avoided. The early London Eye opening times from 11:00 AM to 3:30 PM has a lot of crowds, so it’s best recommended to go right when the London Eye opens or just before it closes. 
  • November, December, and August see the highest rainfall in London hence check the weather forecast before setting out on your ride. A hazy and rainy day is no good for an observation wheel! 
  • Summers are a great time to visit the London Eye - with the sun shining bright allowing you to see up to 30 miles into the horizon. Another great time to visit the London Eye would be around dusk, the city soaked in golden light.

    Plan your visit to London Eye in advance to make the most of your experience.
