The London Eye is an extremely large passenger-carrying Observation wheel situated on the banks of the River Thames in Central London in the United Kingdom.

It is the largest observation wheel in Europe, and has become the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom, visited by over three million people in one year. At the time it was erected, in 1999, it was the tallest observation wheel in the world, until it was surpassed by the Star of Nanchang (160 metres (524 ft 11 in)) in May 2006, and then the Singapore Flyer (165 metres (541 ft 4 in)) on 11 February 2008.

I've been on the London Eye a couple of times now and would recommend it to anyone. Both times I've been on the London Eye I've been able to see all of london (both were typically overcast British days - still worth it though) and only up at the top do you understand just how large London is!

This photo was taken outside westminster looking back at the London eye. Just minutes before the sky was a gorgeous solid blue. I'll share a photo of Big Ben and Westminster with blue sky to prove that I'm not lying.
