The London Eye is situated on Jubilee Gardens, part of the South Bank area.
From Trafalgar Square walk across the futuristic footbridge that clings to the eastern side of Hungerford Bridge, making sure to enjoy frequent glances toward the London Eye (to your right) and onward to the City of London down river.
From The Strand/Fleet Street, cross Waterloo Bridge and enjoy one of the finest views-from-a-bridge on the River Thames. Immortalised in the 1960s Kinks' song Waterloo Sunset, the vista upstream now takes in the London Eye and on to Parliament, while a glance down river takes in St Paul's Cathedral and the skyscrapers of The City and Canary Wharf off to the east.
The closest tube station is Waterloo (Exit 1 Westminster Pier) which is served by the Jubilee, Northern, Bakerloo and Waterloo and City lines with onward connections to Network Rail's overground network.
Waterloo and Waterloo East overground stations are within a five to ten minute walk, with services to the south and south west of London. From Waterloo mainline station, take exit 6 for the South Bank and follow the signs.
Dozens of double decker and bendy buses including the 211, 24 and 11 serve the South Bank and Waterloo area. Check the Transport for London website for more details.
London Eye River Cruises start from just by the wheel, on Jubilee pier. Art lovers can travel by ferry from Pimlico's Tate Britain down river to the South Bank's trendy Tate Modern. The Tate Boat runs every forty minutes during gallery opening hours and features a stop at the London Eye.
For urban adventurers, the most exciting way to arrive is via a World War Two amphibious vehicle or Duck. London's Ducktours run from County Hall, next to the London Eye.
We would advise readers against coming by car to the London Eye. For those brave enough to arrive by car there are three car parks at the South Bank Centre, accessible from Belvedere Road. These are Hungerford Bridge, The Hayward Gallery and the National Theatre car parks.
The coach drop off point is located on Belvedere Road behind the London Eye. Access to The Eye is then through Jubilee Gardens.
