From the heights of my bedroom window I can see the Windsor wheel being slowly erected….. it dominates the skyline to the West of the Castle. Here is a quotation from the official publicity:
The graceful giant wheel in Alexandra Gardens, Windsor will be returning from 1st May – 30th August 2010 and will once again be allowing visitors the chance to enjoy the spectacular seasonal panoramic views whatever the weather and from the comfort of their capsules.
Visitors will be able to soar over 50 metres into the skies above historic Windsor, with breathtaking views over the Castle battlements, the River Thames, Eton College and the stunning countryside beyond. On a clear day or night you can even see as far as the gleaming arch of Wembley Stadium and the glittering skyline of Central London.
Featuring the cutting edge in Observation Wheel technology and beautifully illuminated by night, the Windsor Wheel offers an unforgettable and awe-inspiring experience for everyone, and a unique venue for a special celebration or event. Don’t miss out on your chance to experience a flight to remember this year!
