Mind you, It isn't as good as the one in Liverpool, where you get to travel round three times and see the finest city in the world.

The Liverpool wheel must be big if it gives you a view of Manchester...

Manchester wouldn't exist if Liverpool business men hadn't built the ship canal. Worst thing ever constructed.

What? You can see *Norwich* from the Liverpool wheel?!

and deservedly so - it's a beautiful piece of engineering. I remember standing on the river embankment to watch part of the final raising of the wheel from its platform on the water, a tense time for all involved.

I've been on it twice, and know one couple who were married in one of the capsules.
