Sure, we'd ridden the London Eye before
but never at night

This slow moving Ferris wheel has amazing views
even in the rain 
(as we found out)

It is the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe
and opened December 31, 1999

If I recall correctly, it was supposed to be a temporary installment,
but its popularity made it a permanent addition to the London skyline
(and the most popular paid tourist attraction in the UK)

Now equipped with touch screens inside capsules
to give information about visible landmarks,
this attraction is even better than it was a few years ago

For a few minutes,
we got the Peter Pan view of Big Ben's Clock Tower
and the River Thames

Stunning :)
