Greenwich Wheel Gets Turning

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.

I went on the London Eye a few months ago and at the top a couple of Americans said, "So, this is pretty much it," sounding very disappointed that there was not more to do at the top of the giant ferris wheel than look around them. I am glad to see the Greenwich Wheel has addressed these concerns with the inclusion of a DVD player in their VIP pods.
