The London Eye is 135 meters high, which makes it one the world's tallest observation wheels. It has 32 capsules and carries around 10, 000 visitors every day. The London Eye has become the most popular paid-for UK visitor attraction, visited by over 3.5 million people a year. While traveling in complete safety you can see up to 40 kilometers away in all directions from each capsule.

The London Eye really has to be included in a trip to London. Because of the way the capsules are suspended it allows for a full 360-degree panorama when you're at the top of the wheel. Tickets can be booked online, which really is the right thing to do as it saves a lot of time. The queues look long when you arrive, but they move quickly as everyone is issued with a timed ticket. Don't forget your camera!

In 2009, the London Eye 4D Film Experience opened and is included in the London Eye ticket price. It is a fantastic 4D film to entertain you before your trip. The 4D effects are superb and this short film has the only 3D aerial footage of London.

You can also take the London Eye River Cruise, which is a circular route river cruise starting from next to the London Eye.

Nearby you'll find a popular Harry Potter Film Location in London.

An alternative way to see London from a high-level is to head to Greenwich in southeast London and try the London cable car / Emirates Air Line which connects The O2 to Royal Docks across The Thames. You won't have the central London views but it's still an exciting way to see London from up high.

If you enjoy these high views you might like to also consider Up at The O2, The Monument and the St Paul's Cathedral Galleries.

When I was alone in London,...

I started with the open-top tour bus. In the summer, it's a pleasant ride, and you can learn a little bit about all the major attractions. Then decide for yourself what sounds most interesting. The ticket is good for 24 hours, so you can go end of the day your first day, and then have most of the next day to actually use the service to get to the sites you want to see.
After that, the tube is cheap and easy. I was glad to have a little lay of the land in my head from the bus tour before I started using the tube.
I also really enjoyed Kew Gardens, but that is because I am particularly fond of formal gardens
