Hurray For The London Eye

The London Eye has been voted the world's "best tourist attraction".

Obviously we think that's great. We love the Eye (we wouldn't have put it in our logo if we didn't) and about the only thing wrong with it is that designers David Marks and Julia Barfield have had nothing but debt trouble since they Eye opened.

But 'best tourist attraction in world'?

Granted, the survey was run by Pringles, and they only asked 2,000 people, but it's still pretty incredible. Better than the pyramids? better than the Great Barrier Reef? Better than the Great Wall of China, Niagra Falls, or even the Eiffel Tower?

Ok, well obviously it's miles better than the Eiffel Tower.

A 'gaggle' of London Mayors get stuck on Eye on Monday.

London Eye is the definitive symbol of London.

I proposed to my wife on the Eye. I won't hear a word said against it.

N.C

The Eye's very cool but exceeding the Eiffel Tour... I think not. My vote (i the UK anyways), would be for The Bridge or All England Tenis and Lawn Club (Wimbledon).

THE Bridge? You must mean Stamford Bridge. Ken Bates will be pleased.
