21st century landmarkAs well as being one of London's top visitor attractions, the EDF Energy London Eye has played host to some amazing events and entertainments.

In 2010 it celebrated its 10th birthday. In this first decade it welcomed an astonishing 36 million visitors on over 75,000 rotations, hosted 433 weddings (including 21 civil partnership ceremonies) and over 3,000 celebrity visits.

During the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games, the London Eye will be one of the most recognisable symbols of the city's contemporary skyline.

In its first ten years:
• The London Eye has featured in thousands of films and TV shows including the much loved The Simpsons, where Homer searches for Bart from a capsule
• 165,676 bottles (829,880 glasses) of champagne have been served
• 8,638 boxes of pink champagne truffles have been shared in the capsules
• 30,000 fireworks have been launched from the London Eye structure on New Year's Eve
• The London Eye Silver Bonito boat has undertaken 18,000 river trips covering 90,000 miles of river
• Kate Moss has been on the London Eye 25 times, a record for a UK celebrity
• The record for an overseas celebrity is held by Jessica Alba with an amazing 31 visits
