The Big Wheel at Beaumaris

Beaumaris is gearing itself up to offer Anglesonians and visitors to the Island on a UK holiday a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the world from a different perspective with the “Beaumaris Eye” which comes to town from Saturday 26 May to Saturday 9 June.

The Giant Wheel, which at 35 metres high and with 24 gondolas each taking six passengers, will open up everyone’s eyes with views across the Island, down the Menai Strait, over to Caernarfon and Llandudno as well as the Snowdonia Mountain Range and National Park..

The Wheel, which received permission from Beaumaris Town Council to be sited on The Green at the Council’s recent meeting, is being made possible by eight business people having the foresight to join together to underwrite the hiring cost knowing that the “Eye” will draw in visitors from near and far and firmly put the town on the map as a destination to visit for your UK holiday this year.

Robert Macaulay, chair of Beaumaris Chamber of Trade and Tourism said; “The Beaumaris Eye is a such a coup for the town and one that we are all very excited about as the view from the top will be truly spectacular. This really is a one off opportunity and it will be operational on the day of the Olympic Torch being in town, during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations as well as over the school half-term so yes we’re confident it will be a massive hit.”

The Wheel will be open for Rides from 10am most mornings to 7.00pm at night and will cost £5 per person.
