EDF Energy London Eye (Millennium Wheel)
Known as both the London Eye and the Millennium Wheel, this huge 450-foot (137-meter) Ferris wheel on the South Bank gives a fabulous bird's eye view of London, if your stomach is strong enough. Its inception in the beginning of 2000 honored the Millennium; and the spectacular views stretch for 25 miles (40 kilometers) on a clear day to include views of Windsor and Tunbridge Wells. Up to 25 people can fit in each of the wheel's “capsules.” the wheel turns surprisingly slowly-it takes 30 minutes to go round, so there's plenty of time to spot landmarks and take photos. Hours vary by season.
This is fun. About 35 minutes to go around. Great way to see the house of parliament, Big ben and he Thames. Don't go if it is really hot outside (i.e. mid-day) as it will be very hotter in the "bubble". Consider early morning or at dawn.
it was amazing place the view of lords view of thames i like in real even i like the good peoples of ukiens,hmmm the rule wise submitions soon i ll will b there again n then i ll leave my comments here again as possible about the london city or united kingdom......
Leaning back to view the top of the London Eye, we were amazed at the height of the structure that was raised from the horizontal. Although the queue was long, it moved rapidly and the good humoured crowd made the experience all the more enjoyable.
Sitting on the ascending side we moved slowly higher above the Thames gradually working towards the maximum height of 450 feet. In the far distance the new Wembley Stadium could be seen clearly, also many well known London landmarks.
Slowly descending, the height was sufficient to make people below look extremely small. Although the journey is listed as 30 minutesm it was still too quick.
What I did not like about the experience was the photgraphic part. Because we were not sure where to look the flash took us unawares and the pictures were extremely disappointing. It would be nice to be given fair warning and some indication where to stand.
Not withstanding that, I have been on the London Eye twice and would go again.
The views are spectacular whether you go during the day or at night. The lines are long, but they move quickly. The trip takes about 30 minutes and the ride is comfortable. You have a great view of almost every landmark in London from the Eye. I highly recomend it. The only drawback is the cost, it cost me $90 for two adults, one child and a guidebook.
Don't forget your camera!
I just loved this place, because it was owsome!!it was really great!!I`d like to recommend this place to all feople who can afford to go there- It´s realy worth going to see this place and the London eye!!
We had to wait long time before we could get into one of this "ufo`s" of the milenium wheel!! i think we had to wait two hours, but the wonderful experience we had then was really worth waiting so long!!
Luckily we had wonderful weather so
we could see all over the city !!!
it was really fascinating for me because i was just a 12year old austrian girl who could speak just a little bit english and lived for 10 days at a house in Ipswich!!!
But it doesn´t matter if you are young or old!!! its a wonderful place for everybody! just go there and you will see!!!!
great, i was a bit scared walking up to it, but realsised as i went on it was fine, i am very scared of heights, but i absolutely loved this! amazing views and all the tiny people and cars were so incredible, please go, worth while long que but i must admit VERY WORTH WHILE!
