  1. Interesting facts about London Eye:
    It took seven years and the skills of hundreds of people from five countries to make the London Eye a reality.
    The London Eye welcomes an average of 3.5 million customers every year. You would need 6,680 fully booked British Airways Boeing 747-400 jumbo jets to move that number of fliers!
    The London Eye can carry 800 passengers per revolution - equivalent to 11 London red doubled-decker buses.
    Each of the 32 capsules weighs 10 tonnes. To put that figure into perspective, it's the same weight as 1,052,631 pound coins or 5 Limousine London vehicles!
    The total weight of the wheel and capsules is 2,100 tonnes - or as much as 1,272 London black cabs!
