Among all the historic attractions of this iconic city the London Eye is one of the more recent and contemporary additions. The Eye is a huge Ferris wheel located on the edge of the Thames River in the Jubilee Gardens. The wheel was built as part of the millennium and it 1.5 years to build. It is constructed from 1700 tons of steel and has foundations made with 3000 tons of concrete.
The wheel is 135 meters high and has a diameter of 120 meters, it was completed in 1999. The wheel has 39 sealed egg-shaped capsules which can each hold up to 25 people.
