The London Eye stands next to the former County Hall (once home to the London County Council and later to the Greater London Council) on the south bank of The River Thames.
These photos show the wheel from both sides.
One of the capsules on the London Eye. You can also see part of the maintenance stairway. The capsule rotates as the wheel turns so that the floor is always level. The London Eye reflected in the windows of the Royal Festival Hall, a London Landmark from an earlier (slightly) time. On the northern bank of The Thames, not far from the London Eye, is the Palace of Westminster, which contains the Houses of Parliament.

The Globe Theatre Christopher Wren's house near Blackfriars Looking South from the Millenium Bridge with Tower Bridge in the distance The Millenium Bridge The Millenium Bridge and Tate Modern
The reconstructed Globe Theatre, only a short distance from the site of Shakespeare's original on the south bank of the Thames. The tall, narrow white house a couple of doors along is Cardinal's Wharf, once the home of Sir Christopher Wren. A closer view of Cardinal's Wharf. Wren lived here during the building of St.Paul's Cathedral. The house was built during the 1600s and is named after Cardinal Wolsey. London's Millenium Bridge, a footbridge across the Thames, which crosses from St. Paul's on the north side of the river to The Tate Modern art gallery on the South Bank.
In this view looking south downstream from the south bank of the Thames you can see Tower Bridge in the distance. The bridge is a popular tourist attraction and there are often hundreds of people walking across it at any time.

 

To the right of the picture you can see the Tate Modern, which occupies a building that was once a power station and to the left is the Globe Theatre.

Love it or loath  it The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao is a remarkable building. It is both a home for works of art and a work of art itself. Designed by Frank O. Gehry, it is built of limestone and Titanium. The complex sinuous curves were calculated by computer. St John's Tower in Liverpool can be seen all over the city. Now more commonly known as the Radio City Tower it houses a local radio station. It was originally built to house a revolving restaurant.
