It is a giant wheel has the height of 135 meter located on the bank of the River Thames in London. It is also known as Ferris wheel. It has been officially renamed as the EDF Energy London Eye because of three years sponsorship deal in 2011.
    It is considered as the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe, and the most popular paid tourists destination in the United Kingdom. More than 3.5 million people visit it every year. At the time of its installation in 1999, it was the tallest Ferris wheel in the world. Star of Nanchang surpassed EDF Energy London Eye first by the 160 m (520 ft) in 2006. Further Singapore Flyer made another world record in and has the height of 165 m (541 ft). It was built in 2008. It is still "the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel" in the world.
    The London Eye is located between Westminster Bridge and Hungerford Bridge on the South Bank of the River Thames in the London Borough of Lambeth which is at the western end of Jubilee Gardens, in England. The site is very near to the former Dome of Discovery. It was constructed for the Festival of Britain in 1951.
