Offering visitors some of the city’s best views, the giant observation wheel with 32 glass capsules, is centrally located in the heart of the city overlooking the River Thames. Built to celebrate London’s millennium celebration, this 135 meter structure gives visitors the experience of enjoying breathtaking 360 degree views of the capital and of more than 55 of London’s famous landmarks.
