LONDON EYE

Updated on March 22, 2016

Located in the center of the capital, The Coca cola London eye charmingly stands out on the South Bank of the River Thames, opposite the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben in London. Opened in March 2000, known as a global icon, the London Eye has been a powerful symbol of popular culture of the city representing the turning of the century, designed by architects Frank Anatole, Nic Bailey, Steve Chilton, Malcolm Cook, Mark Sparrowhawk, and the husband-and-wife team of Julia Barfield and David Marks.

It took up to 7 years for London Eye to be completed. This giant Ferris wheel offers 135 metres high, weighs 2100 tones and has a diameter of 120 meters. Having created in 1999, the wheel became the world’s tallest Ferris wheel, currently provides the highest public viewing point in London. Honorably, London Eye has been becoming the best-known paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom with more than 3.75 million tourists each year. The world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel offers awe-inspiring 360-degree views of the capital. It often takes around 30 minutes to rotate in one of the 32 high-tech glass capsules, which promises to give visitors an ever-changing glimpse of London. You will be lifted at an altitude of 40 kilometres on a clear day and kept close enough to make the most of the outstanding sceneries of the city unfolding beneath you. When coming to London Eye in a sunny day without clouds, the wheel provides visitors the chance of enjoying panorama of the Windsor Castle. Thirty two sealed and air-conditioned ovoidal passenger capsules are always available on the Millennium Wheel, each of which weighs 10 tones and can carry 25 passengers at the same time. The enormous wheel can carry 800 passengers on every revolution in total. That comes one of the facts about London Eye surprising everyone. The wheel rotates 26cm each second which is slow enough for visitors to walk on and off the moving capsules at ground level because it won’t stop usually. Interestingly, it would be a wonderful chance for you to completely enjoy the beauty of London Eye when the New Year comes that it is always chosen as the main point for London’s New Year’s Eve firework show, the colorful and sacred night for anyone absolutely. This magnificent wheel has earned over 30 awards, for the best ride, best attraction, experience, design, etc.
