London Eye; Senior Discounts

Not currently available.

The London Eye offers senior discounted tickets at select times of the year for those aged 60 years & above. This option is only available on standard price tickets, (Monday to Friday) but does offer a cheaper option for those that can be flexible on when they visit plus the queues are likely to be down too!

The London Eye; Top Tips & Tricks

1. This is one attraction it is very difficult to find much of a discount especially at peak times.  Often your best bet is to Book Online at the London Eye to take advantage of discounts of up to 15% off standard price tickets.

2. The London Eye is becoming an iconic landmark in the city but it’s still worth remembering to opt for a clear day.  Don’t forget to check the weather forecast before you visit.

3. This is a very busy attraction so it can also be worth planning a visit first thing in the morning to avoid the inevitable queues or alternatively consider a London Eye Fastrack Ticket that allows you to bypass the queues.

4. Weigh up potential savings you can make when using a 2 for 1 voucher for the London Eye against increased queue times during busy times.  Voucher holders will need to purchase tickets on the day and so will need to join the inevitable queue at the ticket booths.  Those with online tickets can avoid this queue.

5. Merlin Passholders should keep an eye out for restrictions on use at the London Eye for those with a standard Merlin Pass.  Restrictions include no entry to the London Eye during the month of August, bank holidays & other select dates during the year, (Premium Merlin Passholders have no restrictions on use).

6. Why not combine a trip to the London Eye with a budget trip on the River Thames using the Thames Clipper commuter ferry or take a tour of the Houses of Parliament by simply walking across Westminster Bridge.

7. Combine a trip on the London Eye with other top London attractions such at the London Dungeon, London Sea Life Aquarium, Madame Tussauds or Shrek’s Adventure! London and take advantage of a range of Combination Ticket Offers from the London Eye.

We’ve plenty of other top tips for the London Eye packed with more ways to beat the queues & enjoy your visit.

Free Trip on the London Eye

From time to time, London Eye runs time limited free entry offers although you have to be quick to take advantage of these deals.  Previously we’ve seen free rotations offered on the first hour of re-opening, (following its annual maintenance closure) & also to Kate & Wills couples, (after the birth of a royal baby).  Keep checking back to see if they run further offers later this year.

  1. Unable to find the 2 for 1 voucher, keep being put in a loop.

    • Hi Karen, I’m not sure which 2 for 1 voucher you are looking to use for the London Eye? There is a new Kellogg’s Grown-Ups go free voucher that is available on promotional packets of cereals & snack packs that is valid at the London Eye, (some excluded dates) – just look out for these promotional packs in your local supermarket. Alternatively, if you travel by train then there is also a 2 for 1 voucher that you can download and present at the ticket booths at London Eye with your valid train tickets. 2 for 1 vouchers offer one free entry when the second person pays the full on-the-gate ticket price and cannot be used with tickets purchased online. I hope this answers your question? Liz

  2. Irene Smith says:

    I am looking for a current 2 for 1 voucher for the London Eye – can you help me please?

    • Hi Irene, if you travel by train you can download a 2 for 1 voucher for the London Eye that can offer value for money, (more details available within the main deals page).

    Thank

    • Hi Karen, the terms & conditions for this 2 for 1 voucher for London Eye can be quite complicated for some routes of transport. Unfortunately the ‘Stansted Express and Gatwick Express in-flight or mobile tickets where the National Rail logo is not shown’ are NOT valid with this London Eye offer.

  12. Hi, can I download a 2 for 1 voucher and use with a train ticket that I purchased today but is for travel tomorrow. Regards

    • Hi Kit, if you add your travel details into the daysoutguide website, (link within our London Eye deals page), you will then be able to download a 2 for 1 voucher for the London Eye. Just check for any exclusions dates that are written within the terms & conditions attached to the voucher. It doesn’t matter when you purchased your train tickets but just ensure it is a valid train journey, (national rail tickets purchased from a rail station including season tickets).

  16. vivian ward says:

    hi Liz Walsh im just wondering if you can help us too we are going to london on the 4th of aug. till the 7th im on this site and looking for a good deals as well. i am collecting some of that Kelloggs deals as well think i have collect 12 dozen of keloggs vouchers.we already booked flights and hotel….we are looking for a cheap train going to our hotel and some of the london sightseeing activities,oyster pass etc.were coming from aberdeen to gatwick and then on our return fly back to aberdeen to luton airport.see if u can help us to get a cheap train .i am travelling with my husband and my 5 yrs.old boy.

    looking forward for you reply thank you xx

    • Hi Vivian, unfortunately the Kelloggs adults go free vouchers are no longer valid at London Eye, (they expired on 3 April 2015). If you are looking for a 2 for 1 voucher for the London Eye, check out the days out guide 2 for 1 voucher that is valid if you travel by train on the day of your visit, (there are also plenty of other 2 for 1 vouchers available for London Attractions on the days out guide too). However you will be able to use the Kellogg’s vouchers at other London Merlin Attractions, (but not the London Dungeon nor the new Shrek attraction). Sorry I’m not going to be much help with travel arrangements as Topdogdays is more about the visitor attractions themselves but worth trying thetrainline or national rail that will give the low-down on the best train fares available. Might also be worth considering a family & friends railcard to bring the prices down further. Have a good trip, Liz

  17. HI
    ON THE 2 FOR 1 SITE I SEE THAT THE OFFER IS VALID UNTIL JULY 31.
    YOU WRITE IT IS EXPIRED/
    IS THERE SOMETHING I DONT KNOW? I DONT WANT TO COME AND BE DISAPPOINTED…

    THANX

    • Hi Merav, whilst the Kellogg’s adults go free voucher is valid at other Merlin attraction until 30 June 2016, (some restrictions on dates), unfortunately it was only valid at London Eye until 3 April 2015:(

      • BUT I MEAN THE TRAVEL BY TRAIN 2 FOR 1(NATIONAL RAIL)
        THIS ONE SAYS 31 JULY 2015

        • Hi Merav, good spot – they must have updated this offer. I’ve just had a go applying for a voucher and whilst I had trouble putting in the date of travel, (I had to manually enter the date), it did indeed provide me with a voucher that is valid until 31 July 2015 that can be used when produced with 2 valid National Rail tickets. Plenty of terms & conditions with this offer but a chance to make some good savings. I’ll update our information, cheers.

      Hi Hannah, can’t guarantee the weather is going to much better in the UK but good to visit London! Worth checking out the online family deal, (2 adults, 2 children) on standard London Eye tickets. If you plan to visit before 30 June 2013, you could pick up 2 for 1 vouchers for London Eye but remember that only one voucher is available per person per transaction.

  24. this is appalling throughout your website it is advertised 2 for 1 vouchers except for london eye tickests are nowhere to be found.It precisely states if you are travelling by trains you are qualified for the 2 for 1 by showing your trian tickets.I have gone off my brains searching for 2 for 1 for london eye,not anymore,it is disgrace and appalling service.All london attractions it is..is it?

    • Fo, there was a 2 for 1 voucher running for the London Eye when you travel by train earlier in the year. Unfortunately this has now expired as it tends to run during off peak times only. Topdogdays sign posts to deals & discounts for top visitor attractions and does not hold the deals ourselves.
