Visiting the capital city?
The EDF Energy London Eye is an attraction not to be missed when visiting London.
Go on a trip on the wheel and you will see amazing panoramic views of London, with interactive maps inside your capsule explaining what each of the landmarks you see are. You might be able to spot the Olympic park in Stratford, Bin Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham Palace.
Around the wheel are 32 capsules, a number selected to represent each of the boroughs in London. The capsules are numbered 1 to 33, as there is no number 13 capsule for superstitious reasons. As the wheel slowly rotates, taking about 30 minutes to complete one rotation at a speed of 26 cm per second, visitors can sit or walk around inside the capsules and enjoy marvellous views over London of up to 40 kilometres in each direction. On a clear day it is possible to see Windsor Castle. The slow rotation of the wheel means that it can revolve continuously without needing to stop to let people on and off.
