The Nottingham Eye with railway sleeper support

A fantastic ride, in the middle of Nottingham Market Square, with panoramic views from 60 metres high.

Nottingham City Council Says..

It's always comforting to know, when you are hundreds of feet up in the air, swinging precariously in some open sided capsule in the clouds, that your safety and indeed life itself partially depends on a few railway sleepers propping up the whole structure. What better advertisement could there be for the strength, versitility, and durability of railway sleepers ! So please remember that when the wheel starts to sway in the wind, your stomach turns, and the blood drains from your cheeks. Even if the whole thing collapsed, it is still likely that the railway sleepers could be re-used for something else! Isn't that an inspiring thought?!
