The London Eye is a Ferris wheel built in 1999 and opened to the public in March 2000. 135 Meter high, London Eye has become the most popular paid attraction in the UK. The lighting was redone with LED in 2009 to allow digital control of the lights in place of the manual replacement of gels over fluorescent tubes. The total weight of steel of the Eye is 1,700 tonnes, with 32 gondolas, each of a capacity of 25 people.
The London Eye is not an essential experience to live out in London. I know many people who have been in this beautiful city several times but have never gone up. It is not essential but in my opinion is a pleasant surprise that I recommend at least once. Getting to the London Eye is simple. The attraction is located in Westminster Bridge Road. Even if you just get off at Westminster tube, you will see the beautiful wheel up there. As for times from September to December, the London Eye is open from 10 am to 20:30, December 24 from 10 am to 17:30, 31 December 10 to 15, other days it is open every day from 10 to 20.
