Discover London’s iconic landmark, the London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel, nestled in the picturesque Jubilee Gardens along the South Bank. Standing tall at 135 meters (443 feet), this majestic cantilevered observation wheel was erected to commemorate London’s millennium celebrations and has since become a must-visit attraction for tourists worldwide.

The London Eye offers a leisurely rotation, allowing visitors to embark and disembark effortlessly as it moves. A full revolution takes approximately 30 minutes, providing ample time to soak in the breathtaking views. The wheel’s gentle pace ensures a seamless experience for all, with special considerations for disabled or elderly passengers to embark and disembark safely.
