The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London.  It is also known as the Millennium Wheel.

The entire structure is 135 metres (443 ft) tall and the wheel has a diameter of 120 metres (394 ft). 

The wheel's 32 sealed and air-conditioned passenger capsules are rotated by electric motors. Each of the capsules represents one of the London Boroughs, and holds up to 25 people. The wheel rotates about 0.9 km/h (or 0.6 mph) so that one revolution takes about 30 minutes.
