London Eye and London Bridge

Completed in 2000, the London Eye is also known as the Millenium and is located on the South Bank of River Thames. It is the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe and offers the highest public viewing point in the city.




The current and modern London Bridge was opened in 1973, crossing over River Thames between the City of London and Southwark. It is a box girder bridge built from concrete and steel. This replaced the 19th century Victorian stone arch structure, which also replaced the medieval stone arch bridge built during the late 12th century. The previous wooden bridges are believed to date back from 50 AD until 1176.
