London Eye, London, UK

At 135m tall, London Eye is the world's largest cantilevered observation wheel. Providing up to 40 km of panoramic views on a clear day, there's no finer place to see the city from above.

A remarkable feat of design and engineering, the London Eye was originally, intended as a temporary structure. Able to be dismantled and transported to a new location, it originally had planning permission for just five years. But with millions boarding it every year, its popularity has prompted its lease to be extended and the Eye has become one of the most distinctive landmarks on London's skyline.

The Eye is well and truly a 21st Century London icon, we couldn't imagine the South Bank without it!
