London’s London Eye area

You might know that the London Eye is one of the most popular tourist destinations in London. What makes this interesting, however, is that this area – the South Bank of the Thames – wasn’t always a busy London attraction area. Not at all actually! In the year 2000, the London Eye was launched and opened to the public. The London Eye immediately became a hot spot for visitors as it was the world’s tallest Ferris wheel. In 2008 this title was given to the Singapore Flyer, but the London Eye remained very popular for many tourists.

The London Eye also known as the Millennium Wheel as it had a passenger capsule named the Coronation Capsule in 2013 when marking the sixtieth anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
