135m high and weighing 2 100t, this big wheel has since 2000 offered a new and spectacular perspective from the banks of the River Thames. The exceptional view extends 20km in all directions. Its glass pods move smoothly round, unveiling the scenery which stretches out below: the River Thames, St Paul's Cathedral and the City's skyscrapers, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey... Perfect on a clear day!
