Setting eyes on the London Eye

Setting eyes on the London Eye

Paris has Eiffel Tower. Italy has the Pisa tower. Now London has the London Eye.
The London Eye has become one of London's most emblematic symbols, along with other famous buildings such as the London Tower and the Big Ben. This 135-metres-tall ferris wheel was opened to public in 2000 and is nowadays one of the most visited touristic spots in the city.
It opens up to public from early morning to the evening and by present day receives 3.5 million visitors every year. It is located at the south bank of the Thames, right in front of the County Hall. It provides a unique sight of London in its 30-minutes-long spin. The London Eye is equiped with 32 capsules that can hold 25 people each. The passengers are free to walk around the capsule or take a seat to enjoy the view.

The London Eye is a great place to visit. The tour itself is just unforgettable and provides a unique bird's eye sight of almost any spot in London. Every night, the London Eye is lit with a hundred beautiful colours thanks to its LED illumination system and reflects itself in the Thames.
However, riding the wheel is not the only thing that you can do. The London Eye offers many options for tourists, such as boat tours through the Thames, and special discounts in luxury hotels of the south bank of the river for the passengers. You can also choose to try a private capsule for you and your friends, perhaps with some tasting of chocolate, and even book dinings or weddings on top of the wheel.
Altough the London Eye is close to Waterloo station, so it is easy to access from downtown, it is always a plus to find accomodation close to the spot, so you can also enjoy the night view of the wheel.
