London Eye – spectacular view from the giant wheel

London Eye, the highest observation point, is one of the main tourist attractions in London, England. No matter the weather outside, your ‘spinning’ in the eye will be memorable! The tour lasts for approximately 45 minutes, enough time to take great photos of London from above. It has 32 capsules and hosts around 10,000 visitors every day and 3,5 million people a year. The best thing is that you can catch a glimpse of up to 40 kilometers in all directions from your seat in the capsule. It revolves at a pedestrian 0.6 miles per hour and if it ever were to break loose from its moorings it would take 4 years, 268 days and 4 hours to roll completely round the Earth.
