The London Eye is one of the world's largest observation wheels on the South Bank of the Thames. It has quickly become one of London’s most popular visitor attractions since it opened to the public in March 2000.
London architects David Marks and Julia Barfield designed the London Eye to celebrate the Millennium. It took seven years and the skills of hundreds of people from five countries to make the London Eye a reality.
The wheel is 135 meters high. It provides a 30-minute, slow-moving 'flight' over London. The ride is so smooth you don’t feel like you’re moving. The Eye doesn’t actually stop when people get on or off.
The wheel has 32 glass capsules and because they’re on the outside of the wheel the views are unobstructed. Each can carry 25 people comfortably, there’s a wooden bench in the middle to sit on but being all glass it can get a bit warm in there on a hot day.
The London Eye is open from 10am-8pm daily, Oct-May and from 10am-9pm, June-Sept. The tickets are £13.50 (for adults), £6.75 (for children). 30 million people has ridden the London Eye since its opening. £
