Pictures of London Eye

a Theme Park in the town of London, in the county of Greater London

About London Eye

At a height of 450 feet (135m) and 1600 tonnes, the London Eye Observation Wheel is the biggest of its kind to ever be built. It was built to mark the new millennium and became operational in January 2000. Designed by husband and wife team Julia Barfield and David Marks, who won the competition for ideas to mark the Millennium, the London Eye gives amazing panoramic views of much of the city of London. Julia drew a circle around London and then found the centre, The Jubilee Gardens and this was considered the perfect place for it to be built. In recognition of their hard and imaginative work, Julia and David have been awarded the M.B.E. Visitors who come to London are enthralled by this new way of seeing London from a birds eye view and it has become a very popular London attraction. Some of the places you can see from the wheel are: Westminster Abbey; The Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, The Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, The British Museum, The Telecommunications Tower, Buckingham Palace, and many more! The London Eye truly is worth a visit.
