London Eye

The London Eye was opened to the public in 2000 to celebrate the Millennium and is the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel! The number of capsules on the Eye represent the city’s boroughs, however, for superstitious reasons there is no number 13. If you hop on it will take 30 minutes to come around however, on a clear day you will be able to see 40 kilometres in all directions. The operators of the Eye keep track of celebrities who have taken the most rides, Kate Moss is currently the record holder with 25 spins around the wheel. Honestly, it’s a pretty iconic landmark that’s worth checking out, but get a fast track pass as the queues are ridiculous.
