On returning to Waterloo Pier there will be time for a snack before we rejoin our coach for an afternoon London Highlights Tour which features many places of interest, our guide will entertain and inform you with a fascinating commentary. At the end of the guided tour our coach will drop you at the coach lay-by from where it is just a short walk to the London Eye.

As well as being one of the most visually striking structures in the world - the London Eye offers you a new perspective on a great city. London's famous streets, churches, palaces and monuments spread out below in a panoramic scene grown up from Roman times - and on a clear day - views that stretch 25 miles to Windsor Castle. Visitors can experience what it's like to soar high like a bird over London's dramatic skyline as the iconic landmark unveils its pioneering 4D Film Experience.


Be sure not to miss the first ever 4D aerial footage of London as well as witness the world famous London New Year's Eve fireworks in a breathtaking journey across the city. Boasting more 4D sensory effects than any other attraction in the UK, visitors will feel like they are really there; with wind in their hair, snow falling at their feet, the floor shaking and even a sense of smell, their new perspective on London will be truly memorable. And it's all included in the ticket price, the entrance to this special attraction is located in the nearby ticket hall.


The four minute film focuses on the journey of a little girl and her father in London in which they visit the London Eye and enjoy a spectacular take on the capital, viewing it from a bird's eye perspective. Their experience is brought to life with vibrant 3D images of colourful parties and events inside the Eye capsules, dramatic firework displays, and a snowfall over the city, revolutionary aerial footage of other iconic landmarks and sophisticated, fun 4D effects. Set to the music of international artists Coldplay and Goldfrapp, the film provides a completely new vision of the city and the perfect prelude to a flight on the iconic London Eye.
