Culture-Landmark Entertainment-Ferris Wheel

You might think the London Eye was a huge ferris wheel - but according to the architects, David Marks and Julia Barfield, it's a "cantilevered observation wheel". Originally a submission to the Millennium Competition, hosted by The Sunday Times and The Architecture Foundation, it took 6 years for the couple to make their dream a reality. It opened in March 2000. 33 pods take riders up to 325 metres in height. Originally, The Eye was intended to be decommissioned after 5 years, its lifetime has been extended - as the tourists just keep coming. You can save 10% when you book tickets online.
