London Eye Facts

Each capsule of the London Eye can hold up to 25 people. It is the most popular paid tourist attraction in U.K. More than 3.75 million visitors visit the attraction annually. The London Eye has been granted a wide range of honours and accomplishments from London’s first Millennium ward in the year 2000, for its remarkable commitment to the capital’s design, to the best fascination for gathering travel in 2003.
The London Eye features parts from a few European countries; steel from the UK made in the Netherlands; orientation from Germany links from Italy; in the interim, the cases were built in France, with glass from Italy; the centre and shaft were cast in the Czech Republic; the UK provided the electrical segments.
The wheel is 443 feet tall. Architects: David Marks & Julia Barfield (Husband & Wife).32 capsules represent 32 boroughs of London. On the off chance that you need a touch of security (or to join 5000 individuals who have proposed on the wheel) at that point you can book a ‘Cupid’s Capsule’ for two, Champagne included. It is always advisable to avoid peak times and book tickets in advance for a first time visitor. the London Eye offers “Discovery Flights”. A Discovery flight will be a flight just the same as any other, but a tour guide will be present to point out special landmarks to those who are on the flight. If this is your first trip to London, you may appreciate taking one of these flights and having a local point out special landmarks that you might have otherwise missed
