The London Eye

The London Eye is on the symbols of the Britain's capital, and it is a must to visit it during stay in London. The giant Ferris wheel can be admired on the south side of the Thames River, close to the famous Big Ben. The wheel is also known as the Millennium Wheel.
The total weight of steel in the Eye is 1,700 tonnes and the London Eye can carry 800 passengers at a time on a thirty-minute ride. From its highest point of 450 feet, it promises views of up to 250 miles. The London Eye was formally opened by then Prime Minister Tony Blair on 31 December 1999, but did not open to the paying public until 9 March 2000 because of a capsule clutch problem. On 5 June 2008 it was announced that 30 million people had ridden the London Eye since it opened. The London Eye annual maintenance period will be taking place from 9th - 24th (inclusive) January 2017. Although the London Eye will be closed during this time, Ticket Office will open daily for the purchase of other attraction tickets.
