Eye on the Bay
Bridlington, East Yorkshire
The Eye on the Bay is one of the newest and most expensive of the Eyes currently proliferating throughout the land. It is the only Eye on the east coast of England, and is a proper Eye rather than a Big Wheel, with enclosed, fixed glass pods rather than open carriages.
It costs £4 to take a ride, adult or child, and consequently we found ourselves the only customers. Never mind, because the nice man let us have three goes for the price of one, and nobody seemed to mind. After all, it is all paid for with euros from the European 'Areas of Social Deprivation' Fund.
