Long Description:
On a clear day the views all around are fantastic as the Bournemouth Eye tethered balloon proves. You rise 500 feet up into the air to see panaramic views over 20 miles away. The offical website describes the Eye in detail:visit link

'What is the Bournemouth Eye?
The Bournemouth Eye, Bournemouth's Highest attraction, is a spherical helium-filled balloon with an enclosed gondola that carries 25-30 passengers. Tethered by a high tensile steel cable, the balloon lifts to a height of 500 feet while providing a panoramic view of the English Channel and surrounding area (over 20 miles) from the highest public observation point in Bournemouth.'

We took some excellent photographs from the balloon as we could see for miles around.
