Also called the “Millennium Ferris wheel”, the number one attraction of London was built to celebrate the arrival of 2000. Located in front of Westminster, it is one of the highest ferris wheels in Europe.
It is strongly suggested to board one of the thirty-two buckets on a day when the sky is clear, cloudless. Thus, during the thirty minutes of the ride, you will have the opportunity to cast an eye over the Parliament and the Royal Palace. Maybe you will have the chance to see Windsor Castle, while at the highest point of the London Eye, it is possible to see around on a 40 mile radius!
