Taller than Nelsons Column at the dizzy height of nearly 60 metres, the English Riviera Wheel is sited in Princess Gardens, Torquay, next to the Pavilion and gives breathtaking 360 degree views across the Bay. The impressive wheel, which has come to the English Riviera, direct from the Olympic Village has 40 enclosed lit gondolas, each of which can carry up to six passengers and can also take wheelchairs. The wheel is almost completely silent in operation featuring the very latest in observation wheel technology and is suitable for all ages.
During the 12-minute ride there is a commentary on the Bay’s history and events and attractions to enjoy in the English Riviera.
