MANCHESTER’S BIG WHEEL

The 42-carriage wheel, though similar to the London Eye, is actually transportable. In fact if you’ve been to Paris in the last few years, you may recognise it, because it actually stood at the end of the Champs Elysees.

The Wheel has been built in Exchange Square, standing next to Selfridges and in front of the Triangle shopping centre. It offers tourists and shoppers the chance to get a unique view above the rooftops in the run-up to Christmas and New Year.

 

A ride on the wheel lasts ten minutes. There will be a commentary pointing out local landmarks including Urbis, Manchester Town Hall, the CIS tower, No.1 Deansgate, Old Trafford and farther afield, the hills in the Peak district
