London, England: The London Eye
The wheel is 443 feet high and was the tallest structure in London until the Shard came along a few years later. The wheel takes 30 minutes to make a circle, and goes slowly enough so that it doesn't have to be started and stopped for passengers.

As of 2015, it costs at least 19 pounds to go for a ride - more if you don't want to wait as long and are willing to pay to cut in line. I didn't get too close to it, although this picture gives you an idea of the neighborhood. So I appreciated the chance to see a video:
