Coca Cola London Eye

KidRated’s London Eye Top Tips:

This fantastic landmark was completed in January 2000 for the millennium celebrations after more than seven years in construction. The London Eye rises majestically from the Jubilee Gardens on the south bank of the River Thames, 135 metres into the London skyline.


Weighing more than sixteen hundred tonnes, it incorporates over four miles of cables. From the highest point, you can see 25 miles in every direction, giving a spectacular view of St. Paul’s Cathedral, Windsor Castle, Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster. Native Londoners can even try and spot their houses.


The London Eye is the world largest observation wheel and the fifth highest structure in the skies of London, with only Canary Wharf, Tower 42, the Shard and the London Telecom Tower being higher.


Each of the 32 capsules holds up to 25 passengers. Approximately fifteen thousand people visit each day.
