I just thought I would share this photo with you all. It was taken on the London Eye back in 2000, just after it became operational. I thought it was a great experience and I am ready to do it again. They call the trip a "flight" and the views are really tremendous. The photograph was actually taken as a movie on my camcorder, but I grabbed this frame. Please feel free to leave any comments.

When me and my dad went to go on the London Eye it was closed for maintainance so I never got to go on it. I do want to go on it before they close it though as they are bound to close it eventually, the view must be amazing I'd love to see it.

Sorry to hear you missed out on the London Eye experience. I haven't heard of any plans to close it, so you should have plenty of time. I think it may not work in very high winds. You may get more information from their website.. http://www.londoneye.com - then you can get tickets in advance and get your booking confirmed.. :-)

I haven't been on the London Eye yet and not sure that I want to, the photos I've seen from people who've been on there look spectacular but I'm also a bit wary that I'll be somewhat scared to be up there in a big space age pod as I'm a bit of a wimp LOL! I didn't realise you could hire a whole pod for £350!

It's really not as bad as it seems. It's more like being in a very high building as it moves so slowly you can hardly feel it. A friend of mine fears height and he came with us and was surprised how good it felt to be up there. :-)
