Since 2000, the London Eye has dominated the London skyline. Now it's getting some competition from the smaller, but no less impressive Greenwich Wheel.
A Ferris Wheel Is Erected As Part Of London Festival Of Architecture

Gorgeous! It looks like it would give spectacular views over Greenwich and the river. Unfortunately, it is projected to only be open over the summer, and to close at the end of September. Which means I won't get to ride it! Hopefully, like the "temporary" London Eye, this will prove very popular and will become a more or less permanent feature.

I'm a librarian who is interested in all things British. I try to visit London as often as possible, and am always planning my next trip. I lived in Sweden for a few years with my Swedish husband, so the occasional Swedish reference may occur . . .
