London Eye is one of the most famous tourist attractions in London. Only a bad luck will make you miss this experience of viewing the London from the top spinning in the air in a very slow and steady motion. Some people might think it moves fast in a circular direction, but it doesn’t. It moves very slow and hoping on and getting out of it is not a problem at all. Plus there are very professional and trained staff to help you in boarding process.
It rotates over the famous river Thames, yes the same one which was beautiful captured in the Wonder Woman movie. The rotation speed is so good that you actually enjoy the whole experience slowly and steadily and in a comfort environment.
Yes be aware of pick pockets always at the crowdy areas and also be gentle to others specially people with kids and elders. Also let the couples have some more space if they want it, they come for some special reasons but so do you right. So enjoy the ride and view London from top as you slowly rise above and come face to face with famous architectures and reaching at a height of 135 meters in the sky.

Specially tourists and visitors they want to move to another attraction soon specially if they are carrying tourist deals like London pass. You will need a quick and fresh meal which is also good in quality and taste.
If you are looking for food and restaurants near London eye, I recommend Great British Fish and Chips because its right next to it, it’s fast, its hygienic and has chicken as well. Their name does not include chicken, but they do have it and have burgers, hot dogs, ice cream and drinks. They are not paying me anything to write about them. Its just I liked their service and staff was friendly and if someone is looking for halal restaurants near London eye, this is also most convenient for them.
