The London Eye opened in 2000 and is the world's largest observation wheel. It is the fourth-tallest structure in London, offering panoramic views that extend for some 25 miles if the weather's clear. Passengers are carried in 32 "pods" that make a complete revolution every half-hour. The Eye can accomodate 25 passengers.
We were told the views at night are even more spectacular.
I really wanted to try this out, but as you can see, it was rainy most of the time we were there.
Our Tip: As our bus tour guide told us – DON’T call it a ferris-wheel :)
