The Millennium Wheel, London Eye

H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia

The Millennium Wheel (also known as the London Eye) is 135 m in height, taller than the Statue of Liberty. It is made using about 1700 tonnes of lovely steel. Visitors are able to enter a capsule on the rotating wheel, which eventually gives a panoramic view of London from a height of about 415 m. Each rotation takes about 30 minutes. The foundations for the Wheel are in 2000 tonnes of concrete involving 40 piles, each reaching a depth of 30 m.
