London Eye ĖBritish Airways London Eye was erected in 2000 to mark the new Millennium like the Millennium Bridge and the Millennium Dome.
The London Eye is located on the south bank of river Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament and is the tallest observation wheel in the world. It is 135 m high and it offers a remarkable view of the city of London.
London Eye is visited by average of 10,000 people a day and is considered one of Londonís major attractions. It was designed by the architects David Marks and Julia Barfield.
The London Eye has 32 glass capsules each holding 25 people. They are mounted on the outside of the rim allowing 360 degrees view. Each rotation of the wheel takes 30 minutes and the passengers are boarded while itís rotating because it travels very slowly - 26cm per second.
