The Greenwich Wheel finally starts turning in the grounds of the Royal Naval College this afternoon at 5pm, after logistical delays. The wheel is 60m high with 36 capsules each holding six people and 2 kids plus obligatory VIP pods with leather seats and a DVD player (why?). Panoramic views as far as Hampstead Heath and the Olympic Park are promised from the top and at £7 for a 12 minute ride, we bloomin' well hope so. The Wheel is open from 10am to 10pm everyday until September 28.
