The London Eye is a truly amazing feature of design and construction. Originally conceived by famous architects David Marks and Julia Barfield as an entry for a millennium landmark competition, the project took six years and the expertise of scores of people from European countries to turn it into a reality.
The world’s largest observation wheel is 135 metres high. It provides a 30-minute, slow-moving 'flight' over London. Designed to reflect the elements of air, water, earth and time - the central theme is a circle of white light from within the rim which sweeps the skyline at 135 metres.
The British Airways London Eye is a privately funded venture between British Airways, the Tussauds Group and London architects David Marks and Julia Barfield.
