It has been one of Kathie’s top wishes to ride on the London Eye before we leave for Spain but neither of us could justify a trip to London just for this.
It happened that I needed to travel to Maidstone in Kent so we decided that a stop in London was now on the cards on the way to Maidstone.
We made all the arrangements and carefully planned the route through London in order to park close by the attraction. Two days beforehand however I realized that it was the Sunday for the London Marathon so we had to quickly change things.
We drove down and parked near Kew Gardens then took the Tube to Westminster. It was a lovely day and London was extra crowded due to the Marathon but everybody seemed good natured and we had no problems. We had booked priority, open tickets for the Eye which meant that we could turn up at any time during the day and go straight to the front of the queue.
I had imagined that each pod would be crowded but the controlled numbers in each pod means that you can either sit down or move about in relative comfort and take as many photographs as you can manage.
What a fantastic attraction!! If you intend to go then do what we did and book Priority, Open Tickets so that you are not stressing about being late and missing your slot.
