After visiting the SeaLife Aquarium, Derek and I took the short walk over to the Coca-Cola London Eye. Although I had been before, I think it’s a must do for any first timers in London and a great way to get your bearings of the city. I was so excited for Derek to see the view of the city that pulled on my heartstrings not too long ago. The second time up was just as breathtaking as the first, and this time, it was neat to be able to point out all the sites and remember all the places I had been before.
To make the most of your experience (and others) be courteous. Realize that everyone paid quite a bit of money to get up there and take turns at the interactive screens and the best spots in the windows. Even though there is just about 360 degree views, there are definitely more popular spots then others. Take your pictures and move to enjoy the next view! And don’t just spend the entire time taking photos, let the city sink in.
Although the Eye is expensive, I think that it’s more than worth it.
