The Birmingham Mail Wheel Reviews
The Birmingham Mail Wheel Feb 12, 2010
The wheel is back! I hadn't been on the wheel in Birmingham since the previous one was there (approximately 3 years ago).
Located in Centenary Square in Birmingham, gives a bird's eye view of the city.
To go on the wheel, it was £6.50 for adults; £5 for students/OAPs; £4.50 for children (4-16 years old), £1 children (between 1-3); free for under 1's; £18 (family ticket, 2 adults, 2 children). At the end, they offer you a photo pack you can buy, which costs £10, it includes 2 large photographs and 4 small photographs.
I had a friend staying from France, and decided it would be a good way of seeing the whole city, but I was so wrong - the weather was awful, and there is a lot of construction in Birmingham (not finished until 2013 and the wheel goes at the end of February). I think the wheel is a great idea, but at the time of year and current state of the city, it wasn't as impressive as I know it can be.
