Went on a Saturday night- not to busy. £22 for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Ok it's not cheap but it's great to get a different view of a city I know so well. We got 2 full revolutions and enjoyed throughly. If you thinks it's too dear don't go on. You have a choice!

We rode this wheel today 22/02. on a very windy day. It could make visitors uncomforable when it stops at the top of the ride and the doors etc, rattle in the wind

Chose this place as meeting point for family. Good place to watch the world go by. Children enjoy the water features. Popular big wheel dominates at moment. Lots of public snacking and resting. Good selection of shops and cafes nearby.

£6 for 2 circuits of the big wheel-if taking pictures avoid snaps through the 'glass' as they look very scratched with lots of reflected glare but the views are lovely-especially the chimneys in the distance adding vapour to all the mist.I'd snap through the gap next time-holding camera firmly. A cold day but we were warmly dressed so not an... More

I was born in Nottingham and spent many an d hour around the Market Square back in the 60s. I barely recognised the place. I really wonder who evaluated and decided on plonking that great spinning wheel in the Square. Why oh why there? . It blends in with nothing and takes your eyes off the architecture to be seen...

Great to visit during summer holidays with the kids, sand, deck chairs, candy floss and ice cream. Winter wonderland, handicrafts, food, mulled wine and ice skating.
