The London Eye
Looking over the city of London with a never-ending gaze is the London Eye, a massive Ferris wheel set on the banks of the River Thames and one of the top tourist attractions in the entire UK. With a diameter of 120 meters, the entire structure is 135 meters tall and is visited by 3.5 million people each year. Providing exceptional views of the city of London, the Ferris wheel is located on the south bank of the Thames, adjoining the west side of the Jubilee Gardens near Westminster Bridge. A "must-do" for thrill seekers visiting the UK, this exciting attraction is fun for travelers of all ages.
About the London Eye
A prominent London landmark that has appeared in numerous movies including Harry Potter, Austin Powers and 28 Days Later, this iconic wheel is the best way to get a birds-eye view of the city. Outfitted with large capsules that each fit up to 25 people, the London Eye moves very slowly – about 26 centimeters per second. It doesn't have to stop to let riders on or off, making the experience seamless, and guests are free to either walk around the capsule or sit and enjoy the show. Each capsule is air conditioned, and the entire rotation lasts about thirty minutes.
