The Nottingham Eye

Finally managed to go on this, a week before it is due to be dismantled.

Its a smaller version of the London Eye I guess, although the nice thing is that the capsules, although covered over, aren’t completely closed in at the ends which means that you can hear the sounds of the city whilst on the Eye, giving you more of an idea of the height you are if you can’t see.
It takes you 60 feet into the air and you maybe go round 7 or 8 times in 15 minutes so well worth the £5 to go on.

I went with a friend who was able to describe the views and she could certainly see a fair distance, particularly to the south of the city and even as far out as the Radcliffe on Soar power station and beyond.

Glad I didn’t take Jade on there though, I think it could have been quite distressing for her.

About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.
