   “伦敦眼”是为迎接千禧年而建造的,高达135米,构成了伦敦天际一道亮丽的风景线,现在已名列伦敦各旅游点榜首,是伦敦城内最著名的标志性景观。英航伦敦眼在建成时是世界最大的观景摩天轮,现在已经被新加坡的飞行者摩天轮取代。
   摩天轮由平台处的两座马达带动旋转,有60个封闭座舱,每舱可容纳20人,舱内装有太阳能电池,提供通风、照明和通讯系统的电力。游客在“伦敦眼”中半个小时就可到达城市中心上空俯瞰城内的壮丽景色,还有伦敦55处著名景观的解说,在旋转到相应角度时播放。
   选择黄昏时分去乘坐,可以欣赏到美丽的夕阳。而夜间的伦敦眼更有一种梦幻气质,巨大的蓝色光环把泰晤士河映衬得更加美丽。


The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. Also known as the Millennium Wheel, it has also been called by its owners the British Airways London Eye, then the Merlin Entertainments London Eye, then the EDF Energy London Eye. Since mid-January 2015, it has been known as the Coca-Cola London Eye, following an agreement signed in September 2014.

The structure is 443 feet (135 m) tall and the wheel has a diameter of 394 feet (120 m). When erected in 1999 it was the world's tallest Ferris wheel. Its height was surpassed by the 520 feet (158 m) tall Star of Nanchang in 2006, the 541 feet (165 m) tall Singapore Flyer in 2008, and the 550 feet (168 m) High Roller (Las Vegas) in 2014. Supported by an A-frame on one side only, unlike the taller Nanchang and Singapore wheels, the Eye is described by its operators as "the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel".

It is Europe's tallest Ferris wheel,and offered the highest public viewing point in London until it was superseded by the 804 feet (245 m)  observation deck on the 72nd floor of The Shard, which opened to the public on 1 February 2013. It is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom with over 3.75 million visitors annually,and has made many appearances in popular culture.

The London Eye adjoins the western end of Jubilee Gardens (previously the site of the former Dome of Discovery), on the South Bank of the River Thames between Westminster Bridge and Hungerford Bridge, in the London Borough of Lambeth.
