The London Eye

Hello again!

Today let me explain something about the London Eye.

## This massive (very, very big) Ferris wheel is located on the opposite bank of the Westminster Bridge, almost in front of the Big Ben, and was opened to the public on March 2000.

## It is the highest Ferris wheel in Europe (135 m. high) and the most popular paid tourist attraction in the UK with over 3.5000.000 visitors annually!!! The views are really wonderful!

## The wheel consists of 32 capsules, one for each London borough. Each capsule weighs 10 tonnes and can carry 25 passengers who can walk around inside or take a seat…

## Each rotation takes about 30 minutes… The wheel turns slowly but surely, 0’9 km per hour, allowing the passengers to step on and off without the wheel having to stop. Here you are the online standard prices:

Child (4-15 years): £12.60                        Senior (60+years): £14.85

Adult (16+years): £17.96                          Family of 4: £54.33

## You can celebrate a private party, even a wedding, in the Ferris wheel… Of course you need a lot of money…To hire one capsule for one rotation (30 minutes) costs £500!

Finally, the question, more difficult this time: What is the other name for the London Eye?


Ferris wheel: noria

Bank: the land next to a river: There is a bike path on the Besos river bank)

UK: United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland)

Borough: Fondo, Singuerlin, Sta Rosa…are boroughs of Sta. Coloma

To hire: to acquire the temporary use of a thing or the services of a person in exchange for payment: Next summer I will hire a house and a car.
