  • The London Eye is located on the banks of the Thames,

  • just across from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

  • Completed in 2000, this huge ferris wheel was built on its side,

  • and painstakingly lifted into place.

  • At more than 400 feet high, it's now the fourth-tallest structure in London.

  • It takes 30 minutes to complete one revolution.

  • Each of the 32 gondolas holds around 25 passengers in air-conditioned comfort.

  • It's also possible to book a gondola for a private function, or even a wedding.

  • From the top, you'll see sweeping views across the city and countryside,

  • up to 25 miles away.

  • The Eye is open from 10am and operates well into the evening.

  • Tickets are available from the ticket office next door,

  • but the London Eye attracts more than 3 million visitors a year,

  • so it's wise to book your tickets in advance.

  • Offering views of London's great past and high-tech future,

  • the London Eye is an ideal way to get a different perspective of this great city.
