Situated on the banks of the River Thames is one of UK’s most popular paid tourist attractions, visited by over 3.5 million people annually.

(TRAVPR.COM) LONDON - June 26th, 2013 - The EDF Energy London Eye, also known as the Millennium wheel or simply as the London Eye, is a giant Ferris wheel standing at 135 meters tall. It was erected in 1999 and opened in 2000 using the vision of David Marks and Julia Barfield, as a metaphor for the end of the 20th century and time turning into the new millennium.

The 32 passenger capsules each represent one of the London boroughs and can fit up to 25 people where they can walk around freely or sit at a bench. It moves at a slow but steady pace, taking 30 minutes to complete its flight. The slow pace allow visitors to embark and disembark from the Eye while it moves as well as letting them have plenty of time to take pictures of the views – highly encouraged when riding the London Eye. Because of its popularity, there are usually lengthy queues to book tickets and then to board the flight.

A London Eye visit is truly an unforgettable experience. Although not physically, London Eye tickets will take you to so many attractions, offering breath-taking views of London’s iconic landmarks. Around the eye, you have Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Waterloo, and Charing Cross Stations. Along the River Thames, you see St Paul's, Tower Bridge, and the Shard in all its glory. Then there’s Wembley, Regents Park, Hyde Park, and Buckingham Palace to the north, and Battersea Power Station standing proudly to the west.

Aside from the unique panoramic view, London Eye also offers a spectacular 4D Experience before a flight. This 4D Experience is a revolutionary 3D film with astounding in-theatre effects including wind, bubbles and mist to add an incredible fourth dimension.

The London Eye is also just the right place to book out a private capsule if you wish to celebrate special occasions aboard the London Eye. You can also say goodbye to boring appointments, meetings, or events since corporate events can also be organized in the London Eye with their Dining at 135, which lets you hire the London Eye exclusively after closing hours.
