It's the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe, and gives a panoramic view of London as the wheel slowly spins. It goes in slow  motion and you can see for around 40 kms from the top. section.There are 32 sealed and air-conditioned ovoidal passenger capsules which carry passengers. You can freely walk around to see the changing view. Special requirements for the disabled are taken care of.

Most of the view from the London Eye is through the transparent windows of the capsule, but this picture was taken from the other side, the side which faces the wheel.
