Discover The London Eye United Kingdom

The London Eye was built to celebrate the new millennium in 2000. At a height of 443 feet, it was the tallest wheel in the world at the time. It should have been dismantled in 2005 but, owing to its success, it has kept its place on the Thames' riverside. It takes 30 minutes for the giant ferris wheel to complete a full revolution, so sit back, relax, and enjoy to 25-mile long, bird's eye view of the English capital.
