The London Eye’s accessible toilet is located in the London Eye Ticket Office in the County Hall building.

And because of restrictions on the number of wheelchairs allowed on the London Eye, making an advanced booking is strongly recommended (a maximum of 2 wheelchairs are allowed in an individual pod, and a maximium of 8 wheelchairs in total are allowed on the London Eye at any one time).

Getting to the London Eye from Westminster Bridge is possible – but involves a bit of a detour. The direct route from Westminster Bridge onto the riverside walkway, involves descending a flight of steps. However, wheelchair users should continue south along Westminster Bridge Road, and turn left into Belvedere Road, turning left again at the end of the County Hall building. The London Eye will then be directly in front of you (and the London Eye Ticket Office, where the accessible toilet is located, and where you sign-in for your pre-booked “flight” on the London Eye, will be on your left).

See the London Wheelchair Map for details of other wheelchair accessible attractions, restaurants and hotels in London.
