The London Eye View of the Thames Capsule
The London Eye Was originally constructed to celebrate the Millennium and at 135 m high is the Worlds tallest observation wheel. It's simplicity and good clean design have made it a great success and the Eye has now attained the status of an iconic landmark comparable with Tower Bridge, Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower.Checking the interior

It is a recommended experience and the views are impressive, but it is not to be confused with a fairground ride. Once you have visited there is no point in rushing to repeat the experience except perhaps after dark to obtain a new perspective on London. Each 360 degree rotation takes approximately 30 minutes.
View from Hungerford Bridge
Some interesting facts are, the structure weighs 1500 tonnes, the views can extend up to a 30 mile radius, it carried 3.4 million people in it's first year of operation an average of 10,000 people a day, there are 32 capsules each holding up to 25 people and each weighing 9 tonnes. Every capsule is fully air conditioned and fitted with centralised bench seating so as not to obstruct the view.

Tickets are purchased from County hall adjacent to the Eye, for same day or advanced bookings, you can expect to wait about 30 minutes in the boarding queue for your ride. The nearest tube station is Westminster with a ten minute walk over Westminster Bridge to the Eye or Waterloo main line station is adjacent.
