The London Eye

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 22:16 No comments

The British Airways London Eye, the capital's 4th tallest building, after the Canary Wharf, NatWest and BT Towers, offers unrivaled views of the city.

Cantilevered out over the Thames, the capital's stunning new marker is the largest observation wheel in the world. The arrangement was built by British Airways to celebrate the millennium. 

Facing the Houses of assembly across the Thames, the London Eye sweeps the skyline at 443 feet.  The wheel's central hub and spindle are connected to the external and inner rims by eighty fine cable spokes.

The  32 traveler capsules, positioned on the outside of the wheel structure, can carry 25 passengers each.   continually revolving, the London Eye can carry up to 15,000 passengers a day, passengers get on and off whilst the Eye is in motion, don't worry it's a lot easier then it seems!

The trip takes 30 minutes and on clear days visitors can see over 25 miles in each direction.
