    Yeah. I didn't like it, was a bit afraid. I also had to jump on near the edge so I was paranoid of falling off! It was also a bit dull when we went on so meh.

    I've been on it. It was okay - wouldn't say it was worth the money though.

    I haven't - I'm terrified of heights and claustrophobic

    I thought it was rubbish. A field of grey, nice. Best thing was the gerkin, so that says it all really.

    I've been on twice, both times we barely had to wait 10minutes to get tickets and get on, maybe we were lucky.

    If you like heights then also make a line for the great fire of London Monument (near Monument tube station funnily enough). The views are not quite as impressive but it costs £2 for students, you get to climb the very cool (and long) 311 step spiral staircase (able to look all the way both up and down along it) and when you get to the top you are standing on literally a tiny platform which, at it's narrowest is only a foot or two wide and only enclosed by a few iron railings.

    I found it rather dull to be honest. Yes, the views were nice, but I guess living in London anyway, it didnt do much for me.

    Yeah, I've been on it once. The view was pretty fantastic, particularly if you don't spend too much time in London. Oh and if you're going in summer (which I did), make sure you have some water with you. It can get mighty hot up there :P

    I think it was crap and slow. Why would I want to see dirty old London, even if it is up high.
