The London Eye is known as Millenium Wheel (Millennium Wheel), is considered an achievement of London design and engineering. It was built over seven years by hundreds of workers.

After its inauguration in the year 2000, the amazing ferris wheel of 135 meters high has become one of the most emblematic icons of the city and of all Britain. It was the largest ferris wheel in the world until the year 2006, when it was surpassed by the Nachang Star in China and later on the 2008 a new record was set with the Sigapore Flyer of 165 meters high.

The London Eye It offers stunning panoramic views of both the city and the countryside. On clear days you can reach a visibility of 40 kilometers with the possibility of seeing Windsor Castle, although if there is too much sun it prevents you from seeing some parts of the city.
