London Eye
  • Tower Loop
  • West End Loop

The London Eye, which used to be called the Millennium Wheel, is a 135 m observation wheel located at the western end of the Jubilee Gardens on the South Bank of the River Thames just next to County Hall. Since its inauguration in 2000, the London Eye has become one of the city’s most emblematic icons. The impressive structure is made up of 32 glass capsules which can hold up to 25 people each. The London Eye moves constantly at slow speed to let people get in and out of the capsules and to give visitors unique views over the city.
