We have selected LondonEye.com as the world's very best website on the London Eye.
The LondonEye.com website is published by the London Eye Company Limited. This company, part of the Tussauds Group which also operates Madame Tussauds Waxwork Museum in London, is operator of the British Airways London Eye. The website is available in six languages.
The London Eye, which is 135m high, is the world's tallest observation wheel. Conceived, designed and promoted by the husband and wife team of London architects David Marks and Julia Barfield, it was opened in 2000 to mark the millennium. It is now a London icon comparable to Tower Bridge, Big Ben, Eros, and the Tower of London. It is also the most popular paid-for UK visitor destination, visited by more than 3.5 million people each year, who take 'flights' in its egg-shaped capsules.
The LondonEye.com website is organised into the following main sections: Visitor Information, Plan Your Visit to the London Eye, Celebrations & Weddings, Corporate Events, and About the London Eye. There is also a Virtual Tour of the London Eye, with panoramic images of the London Eye, and of views from the capsules.
