The London Eye is one of the most iconic attractions in the world, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the city. Located on the South Bank of the River Thames, this giant Ferris wheel stands at 135 meters tall and has 32 capsules, each able to hold up to 25 people. It was officially opened in the year 2000 as a temporary attraction to celebrate the new millennium, but it quickly became so popular that it was made a permanent fixture of London's skyline.

The London Eye is an engineering marvel, with its design and construction requiring years of planning and effort from the team of architects and engineers involved. Despite its size, the wheel rotates slowly and smoothly, taking visitors on a 30-minute ride that showcases the city's most famous landmarks, such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral, and the Shard.

Aside from the breathtaking views, visitors can also enjoy a range of experiences and attractions located nearby. There are various dining options, including a champagne experience, where visitors can sip on a glass of bubbly while taking in the stunning views. Whether it's your first time in London or your hundredth, a visit to the London Eye is an experience not to be missed.
