London Eye

Top Tourist Spot in London

The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel situated on the south bank of the River Thames in London. The 135 metre (443 ft) tall wheel was constructed in 1998- 1999 and hence called Millennium Wheel. The London Eye is currently owned by Merlin Entertainments and is the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe. More than 3.5 million people visit the Ferris wheel every year and it is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom. The Ferris wheel was formally opened by the British Prime Minister Tony Blair on 31 December, 1999 and was opened to public on 9 March, 2000.

World’s Tallest Observation Wheel - 135 Metres or 443 Feet

The giant Ferris wheel looks like a big bicycle wheel and holds 32 capsules that are sealed and air conditioned. Attached to the external circumference, each capsule weighs 10 tons and carries maximum of 25 people. People can move freely inside the egg shaped capsule and it takes 30 minutes for the eye for one complete revolution at a speed of 0.9 kilometers per hour.

The Merlin Entertainments London Eye was built as a temporary, celebratory monument and tourist site. Today, it’s amongst one of the top tourist attractions and is an iconic landmark adding pride to the English capital. It is the youngest of the London attractions and is one of the biggest observation wheels in world. The London Eye is only at a short distance from tourist sites like Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, the Strand, St. James Park, Buckingham Palace and many more.

The London Eye is a perfect epitome for architecture; it’s a must see attraction as the design and construction principles implemented reveal the intelligence of the engineers and architects.
