Best time to visit the London Eye

Weekday vs Weekend

  • Weekdays are generally less crowded than weekends. Weekdays are a better option for a relaxed experience with fewer crowds.
  • However, the weekend might be a good choice if you don't mind the crowds and want a more vibrant experience.
  • Mornings and evenings are less crowded than in the afternoon. Consider booking a ticket for early morning or late evening for a quieter experience.








Very Crowded

Peak season vs Low season

  • The London Eye sees its most visitors during school holidays in the summer and during UK half-term holidays (July and August). Avoid visiting during these months for a more relaxed experience.
  • Instead, visit between January and March or October to November to avoid the crowds.
