6 Vetted Homes Near The London Eye
A look at some of our favourite homes near London's famous attraction
Like a giant wheel in the sky, the London Eye has fast become the most recognisable attraction in London. Buckingham Palace will have something to say about that, although the Royal Family has other things on its mind right now with regards to its princes. Formerly known as the Millennium Wheel (you forgot about that, didn’t you?), the observation wheel was built at the turn of the 21st century, and is the tallest wheel of its kind in Europe. In fact, it was initially the tallest in the world, before the likes of Las Vegas’ High Roller surpassed it. That’s the thing with building the tallest ‘anything’ in the world: the title is never likely to last. That doesn't mean it gets any smaller though, and if you stay in one of our nearby homes, you may even be able to see it from your bedroom window. Here at Plum Guide, we offer only the very best homes, so read on for our list of 6 hand-picked homes near the London Eye.
Stay central at The Financier Penthouse I
If you're looking for a home in a central location, then The Financier Penthouse I was tailor-made for your trip. With views of the Eye from the stylish living area, you could hardly be much closer without actually being in one of the famous pods. This Charing Cross apartment holds up to 4 guests and boasts a rooftop terrace, where you and the family can relax after your day of viewing the English capital from 135 metres in the sky.
Reserve a stay at Peter the Gold
With 3 bedrooms, Peter the Gold has space for all the family, and sits within walking distance of the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and (importantly) the London Eye. The white ceiling and walls give the home an open, airy feel, and the dining table provides the perfect opportunity to sit as a family and plan your trip to the big wheel. There's even a modest library of books, so if the rain comes out and stops your trip to the Eye, you can always still read about it.
Enjoy a luxury stay at Palace View III
Situated in Zone one, this luxury London home is the perfect place for you to prepare for (and recover from) your enthralling ride on the most famous wheel in London. Bright and contemporary, Palace View III offers a neutral, stylish design, and the floor to ceiling windows make for a very open feel. The outdoor terrace is the perfect place to settle down with a book and a glass of something nice. You'll think your trip couldn't be any better, and then remember that you're only a short walk from the London Eye, but don't celebrate too hard. Being 135 metres in the air probably isn't so enjoyable with a throbbing head.
Put your feet up at Centre Stage XI
This one bedroom apartment in Covent Garden is ideal for a couple looking to enjoy the beauty of London without all the hassle of complicated travel. Right in the heart of the city, you're so near the London Eye that you could almost touch it from the sofa (ok not quite, but it is nearby). The home's open feel is accentuated by the high ceilings, and plush furnishings provide the comfort needed after a long day of exploring the irrepressible English capital.
Book your trip to Mustard Seeds
The residential feel of this home is almost strange when you consider its location in Bloomsbury, with the bustling area of Soho not far away at all. The floor to ceiling windows make for a very bright atmosphere, and the minimalistic style gives a very contemporary impression. Mustard Seeds is a newly refurbished home with high-end amenities, and as every bedroom has its own bathroom, the luxury of staying near the London Eye don't come as a sacrifice to some much needed privacy.
Lodge at The London Observatory
As you can probably guess by its rather telling name, The London Observatory offers a view of the entirety of London. Landmarks like The Shard and the Eye that you're all here for are easily noticeable from this impressive home, with yet more floor to ceiling windows giving you all the light and viewing space you need. Have breakfast on the spacious balcony, watching Elephant & Castle from above while you plan your day of adventure in one of the world's most famous cities.
