Profile. By Ian Layzell
The London Eye is situated on the Banks of the River Thames, in London. The entire structure is 135 metres (443 ft) tall and the wheel has a diameter of 120 metres (394 ft).
I am not great with heights and had my reservations about riding this giant ferris wheel. Actually I felt quite safe and did not have the fear which I have experienced on previous tall structures. This was probably helped by refusing to look down instead I just concentrated on looking across!!
