Hotel near The London Eye
The London Eye, located in the Jubilee Gardens on the South Bank, is a recent but yet very popular tourist attraction. This giant observation wheel is a 135 meter (443ft) tall structure and was built as part of London’s millennium celebrations.
The observation wheel turns slow enough for people to embark while it is moving. A complete turn takes about 30 minutes. The wheel does not usually stop to take on passengers as the rotation rate is so slow that they can easily walk on and off the moving capsules at ground level. It is, however, stopped to allow disabled or elderly passengers time to embark and disembark safely.
Thanks to the construction of the glass capsules on the outer side of the rim, the passengers have a great 360° view over London. Many famous landmarks are clearly visible, including Buckingham Palace, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament. On a clear day, you can see as far as 40 km (25 miles).
If you are planning a visit to the London Eye and require a hotel, then look no further than Clayton Crown Hotel London.
Clayton Crown Hotel London is situated approx 20 minutes via public transport from the London Eye, making this hotel your ideal choice of accommodation.
