A stunning view over London.
The EDF Energy London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel, is London's famous big wheel, and a must-see tourist attraction. Located right on the banks of the Thames, the wheel measures 135 metres - it is one of the tallest Ferris wheels in the world.
Since its opening in the year 2000, the London Eye has become one of the city's main landmarks, a cherished cultural symbol, alongside Tower Bridge or Big Ben. From the top of the slowly revolving wheel you can enjoy a truly breathtaking view across London, from the warm safety of a sealed capsule.
You can also choose to take a trip on the wheel at night, for a wonderfully romantic moment above the twinkling lights of the city.
