  The London Eye
by Ash59

Favorite thing: The London Eye, as it is popularly known, is owned by British Airways. It was first used by invited people only on 31st December 1999 (hence the proper name "Millenium Wheel"). It is solar and wave-powered and each 30 minute revolution can take up to 25 passengers in each pod on a 450ft (220mtr) arc into the sky.
