The London Eye (Millenium Wheel) at a height of 135 metres (443 ft), is the biggest Ferris wheel in Europe, and has become the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom, visited by over 3 million people a year

The iconic County Hall and the London Eye. County Hall houses the London Aquarium where Julia Roberts meets Clive Owen in Patrick Marber’s drama Closer (2004), while Austin Powers’ swinging pad is located on its roof in Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002). It also makes an appearance in Judy Garland’s final film, I Could Go on Singing (1963), while the interiors double as the Pentagon in Mission Impossible (1996). County Hall is also home to The Movieum of London where you can see exciting props and memorabilia from some of the world’s most famous movies. Since the London Eye was built on the South Bank in 1999 it has appeared in a wide range of films, featuring in a spectacular stunt sequence in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) as well as in Basic Instinct 2 (2006) and Wimbledon (2004) starring Kirsten Dunst. Jubilee Gardens in front of the Eye was used as a landing pad for T2 in Thunderbirds (2004) and is where Sidney Poitier eats ice-cream with his daughter in A Warm December (1973).
