London Eye Ride Suspended

The British Airways London Eye will not be operating today (Friday, July 21)because of technical problems.

One of the 16-drive wheel mechanisms failed last night. As a precaution a full inspection is being carried out to all of them. So regrettably we have decided to suspend operations for today to allow for these further inspections.

Obviously we appreciate how frustrating and disappointing this is and we will be offering to rebook or refund “flights”.

A telephone helpline is being set up to give operational updates for people planning to visit the London Eye but we would ask those with pre-booked tickets for today not to go to the attraction.
