The London Eye is one of the biggest sttractions in the city. With its 135 m height it is the tallest Ferris wheel in the world. Opened for public in 2000 to celebrate the new millenium, The Eye is located on the South Bank of the River Thames between Westminster Bridge and Hungerford Bridge. More than 3 million visitors per year enjoyed the view of London from the wheel.

The mono version

When I was in London couple of years ago I too visited The Eye. It was perfect time to see the city at dusk. The large comfortable passengers capsules allow to walk inside for better panoramic view or just to sit. They are big enough to provide space for up to 25 people. The queue seemed long at the entrance but it took not so long to get inside the capsule.

The sepia verion.

I was happy as a child, not knowing where to look first. I have just got my new phone and not quite used to I made lots of blurred photos. However I chose some not so bad but still far from what they have to be.

Next to the eye is the County Hall, illuminated with blue lights.

Going down and getting closer.

The County Hall was the headquarters of London County Council. Now it hosts London Sea Life Aquarium, London Dungeon, Namco Station.

At night the wheel is illuminated in red. It may be the tallest Ferris wheel in the world but it is not the tallest construction in London. The Shard is higher with 72 floors and height of 244 metres. Still the London Eye is worth visiting and I recommend it. This is probably the best place from where you can see the whole London.

Interesting facts and images Neli. Obviously you are not afraid of heights and wow, what views. We have never been to the UK. but I wouldn't mind one day, just to see the old buildings even and the history behind them intrigues me. Would definitely take my camera.

Oh, I love the heights. The higher, the better. 😀
There is so much to be seen there and I had too little time. It is worth visiting.

It is worth seeing it. On Mew Year's Eve the Eye is on the main focus with the fireworks.

I have made a lot of new friends because of it! I look forward to Sundays because of it. My kids and grandkids are here this weekend and my numbers will be down because I have been busy with them. I love having them here!

They live in the city, about 100 miles away so I treasure their visits! I I'm really fortunate that they come frequently. I am taking care of their cat while they are on vacation so they are leaving him with me this weekend and in two weeks they will be back to pick him up. But they're usually here at least one weekend a month, sometimes two.
