The London Eye began as an entry to a competition in 1993 organised by the Sunday Times. David Marks and Julia Barfield, the renowned husband-and-wife architecture team, submitted their idea for a giant cantilevered observation wheel as a new London landmark to celebrate the millennium.
The pods were numbered from one to 33, skipping 13 with superstitious passengers in mind. Each pod weighs ten tonnes, as much as one million pound coins.
On 13 October 1999, the 135-metre-tall wheel was erected - officially the world's largest observation wheel. It was the culmination of Julia and David's determination and incredible efforts, and an exciting new addition to London's skyline.
The 4D Cinema Experience is included. The perfect prelude to an experience on the lastminute.com London Eye, the new 4D Experience is a groundbreaking 3D film with spectacular in-theatre effects including wind, bubbles and mist to add a breathtaking fourth dimension.
