Completed in 2000, this surprising 443 feet (135m)-tall metal Ferris wheel has become one of the city’s top attractions and emblematic icons. 

Also known as the Millennium Wheel, the London Eye is a design, engineering and architectural sensation, taking seven years to complete by hundreds of workers from five different countries.

The London Eye was the world’s largest Ferris wheel until 2006, when it was surpassed by the Nachang Star in Nachang (China). In 2008, the Singapore Flyer marked a new record, standing 541 feet (165 m) tall.

Inside the Eye

This impressive structure is made up of 32 glass capsules, each weighing 10 tons, and holds up to 25 people.

The wheel turns very slowly but constantly, to allow visitors to get on and off without stopping. The ride takes approximately 30 minutes.

London skyline

The London Eye offers an incredible panoramic view of the city and of the countryside. On clear days it is possible to see out over 24 miles, although the sun can hinder the views of certain parts of London.

The entry fare includes the “4D Experience”, a short film in three dimensions about London.

On the downside, it is quite pricey and sometimes the line can be over an hour long (especially in spring and summer).
