Coca-Cola London Eye

The attraction
At 135 metres, the Coca-Cola London Eye is the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel, offering breath-taking 360 degree views of the capital and its famous landmarks. The gradual rotation in one of the 32 high-tech glass capsules takes approximately 30 minutes and gives you an ever changing perspective of London.

Within each capsule, six touch screens powered by Samsung Galaxy Tab 10 allow you to explore the capital's iconic landmarks in several languages. An experience on the Coca-Cola London Eye will lift you high enough to see up to 40 kilometres on a clear day and keep you close enough to see the spectacular details of the city unfolding beneath you.

History of Coca-Cola London Eye
The London Eye was erected in 1999 and opened to the general public in 2000 and was the crowning glory of London's celebrations for the dawning of the new Millennium. Originally planned as a temporary structure, in 2005 Ken Livingstone, then London Major vowed that the landmark would remain in London.

The London Eye is Europe's tallest Ferris wheel and was the highest public viewing point in London until 2013 when it was surpassed by the View from the Shard.

Interesting Facts about the Coca-Cola London Eye
There are 32 capsules in total each one representing one of the London boroughs. However they are numbered 1-33 with the number 13 missing due to superstition regarding the number.

The London Eye is often mistaken for a Ferris wheel but it's actually a cantilevered observation wheel as it is only supported on one side. It is the largest in the world.

The eye was constructed in sections that were floated up the Thames on barges, once assembled it was then lifted in to place.

The Eye attracts more visitors than both the Taj Mahal and the Pyramids of Giza with over 3.5 million people experiencing its views every year.
