THE Big Wheel is staying on the Western Lawns for another two months.

It arrived in the summer but now it will stay much longer than expected.

A spokesperson said: “Due to popular demand, the Eastbourne Eye will be staying until 30 November

“With revised opening hours, the 35 metre tall wheel will not only offer panoramic views of Eastbourne in the daylight, but unique sunset and evening views of Eastbourne and the surrounding area as well!”

From 1 October the Eastbourne Eye will be available for rides on:

Fridays at 4pm – 9pm

Saturdays at 11am – 9pm

Sundays at 11am – 5pm

Tickets cost £5 per ride for adults and £4 for children under 1.4 metres tall, with discounted family tickets available.

Tickets can be purchased onsite at the time of riding.
