London Eye

As a tourist, no visit to London is complete without a trip on the London Eye. Towering at a height of 135 metres, it is the tallest cantilevered observation wheel in the world and attracts over 3 million visitors a year. Built in 2000, the London Eye has 32 capsules representing the 32 Burroughs of London.
These High Tech capsules have heating and cooling and bench seating in the centre. Each capsule can hold 25 people who can move around in the capsule. The wheel takes approx 30 minutes to complete one revolution
The Wheel resembles a huge spoked wheel and uses two types of cables which are similar to bicycle spokes and stretch across the wheel.View of the British Parliament from the London Eye
