The London Eye – Oh My!
I’m not rhyming!
Seriously, I really enjoyed the London Eye, and thinking back, I think it was one of the highlights of our recent London trip. Here’s some more pictures of the view you will get of beautiful London from the inside of the London Eye.
These people seem to have one of the greatest spots in London, right next to the London Eye, overlooking the River Thames, with a view of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Can life get any better? I bet they even have a cup of tea!
Here’s beautiful Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament
Here’s me in the London Eye
Here’s me and my daughter – we were so lucky to be in the Eye during sunset!
I can’t remember how I got this picture, I might have taken a picture of a picture – I think that’s my shadow you see on the top of the picture – I give credit to the London Eye for the original of this picture.
Okay, so now we just left the London Eye – here’s the immediate area outside of the Eye
I believe that’s the same building that I took pictures from within the London Eye – now you can see it from street level
That same evening, this is a picture I took of the London Eye.
I hope you enjoyed my pictures of the London Eye, and I hope you are all having a fantastic December so far. Can you believe that these are still only pictures from Day 3 of my trip to London – I still have two more days to cover! Anyway, I will cover those two days soon. Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate, and Happy Holidays to all the rest of you! Until next time!
The London Eye
You can’t escape it
Every which way you go when you are in Central London
It’s before your very eye
(Two examples below: you can see it from Big Ben, you can see it from Buckingham Palace at the Queen Victoria Memorial, and you can see it from Trafalgar Square)
The London Eye
Why would you want to give it a miss
When riding it can give you bliss?
The London Eye
Will take you to the sky
Or so it will seem
As you circle the earth
You’ll think you are in a dream
The London Eye
Don’t even think of not going
Rain, shine or snow
You must go
To the London Eye
I hope you liked my attempt at a poem! I tried.
The following pictures were taken on our approach to the London Eye.
Want to know how much it costs – that will be £20.95, please for an adult.
Here’s another picture taken from within the London Eye
Here are some pictures of the view from the London Eye
So, I’m sure you’ll want to know if I recommend it? Of course, I do! When I used to live in London, the London Eye was not a part of London. Then when I started returning to visit London, I used to pass it and not really consider going on it, because I used to think it was a waste of money – for a ride that was very costly. However, now that I have been on it – I think it’s not just a ride, it’s an experience. Try it and you’ll love it!
Continuing with Day Three of my trip to London in July. Wow, has it already been nearly two months since I came back? How time flies?
Okay, fast rewind back to that day. We went for a walk all the way from our hotel – The Trafalgar – to the South Bank. It was a lovely walk, it drizzled just a tiny bit at one time, and other than that it was nice and warm – perfect weather for a walk. Do you know that London is a fabulous place to take a walk? Oh, the parks, the sightseeing, and the architecture! This is some of what we saw as we got closer.
The London Eye – isn’t it lovely?
Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament – aren’t they just magnificent?
London, isn’t it wonderful?
Okay, I won’t ask you any more questions, I’ll just let you take a look at the pictures.
I don’t know what the name of the castle or palace type building is so I’ll just call it “Beautiful Palace”
Fancy a ride, you could go on this carousel or the London Eye which you might see if you look closely at the picture.
Fancy a walk? London is a terrific place for taking walks. Oh, how I would love to be taking a walk there right now!
That’s my 17 year old daughter’s beautiful hair – it looks even more spectacular with the sun shining down on it!
Time for bubbles!
Have you ever seen such a big bubble or seen one as beautiful?
Wow! Now, it’s really massive! This man is good, and I think he’s magical!
I will always remember the Bubble Blower of the South Bank
So, we left the bubbles to get closer to our ultimate destination – the London Eye.
Now, we are getting closer to the London Eye
Here we are really close, in fact – we are at the entrance of the London Eye!
So, you’ve seen pictures of the entire wheel, you may have seen what it looks like up close – if not, this is what it’s like
and just for you, another picture…..at a slightly different angle.
Well, until next time…..and here’s a sneak peak at my latest video of the South Bank, the Bubble Blower and the London Eye. Let’s just say I love London, and I hope you like the pictures, and the video.
