It's difficult to remember what London looked like before the landmark London Eye began twirling at the southwestern end of Jubilee Gardens during the millennium year. Not only has it fundamentally altered the skyline of the South Bank but, standing 135m tall in a fairly flat city, it is visible from many surprising parts of the city (eg Kennington and Mayfair). A ride - or 'flight', as sponsors British Airways (BA) like to call it - in one of the wheel's 32 glass-enclosed gondolas holding up to 25 people is something you really can't miss if you want to say you've 'done' London. It takes a gracefully slow 30 minutes and, weather permitting, you can see 25 miles in every direction from the top of what is the world's tallest Ferris
