London Eye, UK

The London Eye has now become one of the iconic sights of London. Opened in March 2000 the wheel is a metaphor for the turning of the century.

The London Eye is 135m/443ft high and weighs 2100 tonnes.

There are 32 capsules attached to the wheel which travels gently at a speed of 26cm per second. Each rotation takes 30 minutes in which time you can marvel at the views that span up to 40km in all directions (depending on the weather).

This is the UK’s most popular paid for visitor attraction, visited by over 3.5 million people a year.

There are also lots of special packages avaible.

The London Eye is within walking distance from several underground stations including Waterloo, Embankment, Charing Cross and Westminster. Waterloo is the closest tube station.
