The London Eye holds 32 capsules. Visits last for one rotation, which takes about 30 minutes, and during that time visitors rise to a peak height of 443 ft. From there, it’s possible to see up to 25 miles away. Each of the 10-ton capsules represents one of the London Boroughs, and holds up to 25 people, who are free to walk around inside the capsule, though seating is provided.
The London Eye is a cantilevered observation wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. It is Europe’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel, and is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom with over 3.75 million visitors annually, and has made many appearances in popular culture.
