Spectacular Views Only From The London Eye

Sep 17, 2008
Not all London attractions suit everyone. The younger visitors will enjoy the London Aquarium or the London Zoo and the older visitor will enjoy some thing a liitle more cultural such as St Paul's Cathedral or Westminster Abbey.

The London Eye is a unique and versatile structure, comprising the best of British architecture and design. It can be simply described as a giant Ferris wheel. Who would of thought that something that looks like a bike wheel would become the UK's most popular paid for visitor attraction. Many people refer to the London Eye as the 'Millennium Wheel'.

The London Eye was built to mark the new millennium. It took seven years and the skills of hundreds of people from five countries to make the London Eye a reality. Tony Blair opened the Eye officially on New Years Eve 1999.

A giant spindle holds the wheel in place and the hub rotates around it. The spindle is around the size of a church spire and, together with the hub, weighs in at 330 tonnes: over 20 times heavier than Big Ben. The London Eye can carry 800 passengers at one time and not many Ferris wheels can match that feat.

If you are planning a romantic evening then why not book a private capsule and take advantage of one of the many packages the Eye to offer. There will be a huge choice of food and drink for you to choose from for your perfect evening. To make the evening even more special those who pre-book have priority boarding,k so no waiting in queues.

The London Eye has the best panoramic view of London on offer. From the top of The Eye, one can see attractions from 360 degrees. The first landmarks you notice are the nearest; Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

Another London attraction worth a visit and is located not far from the London Eye is the 'London Aquarium'. This is another attraction where the weather does not interfere with your visit.

When organizing a vacation to London it is worth remembering that London has four airports to choose from, the largest being 'Heathrow'. If air travel is not the way you want to travel then train travel could be another option, even if you are travelling from Europe. Waterloo Train Station is the high speed link for channel tunnel travelers.
