Standing 135m high in a fairly flat city, the London Eye affords views 25 miles in every direction, weather permitting. Interactive tablets provide great information (in six languages) about landmarks as they appear in the skyline. Each rotation – or 'flight' – takes a gracefully slow 30 minutes. At peak times (July, August and school holidays) it may seem like you'll spend more time in the queue than in the capsule however. For £27.95, showcase your fast-track swagger.

Save time and money by buying tickets online. Alternatively, visit before 11am or after 3pm to avoid peak density. Feeling romantic? Hire a capsule for two (£380), with a bottle of champers.

The London Eye has been the focal point of the capital's celebrated New Year's Eve fireworks display, which dramatically kick off at midnight.
