A 42-carriage big wheel that towered over Manchester last year is returning to the city centre.
The 60m-high wheel is lit by 60,000 light bulbs
The 60m (196ft) wheel, similar to the London Eye, will be erected in Exchange Square for tourists and shoppers to get a birds' eye view of the region.
The wheel put in place this year has been specifically built for Manchester at a cost of £3.5m.
It will open on 14 October and will be stationed next to the Urbis museum until Easter time.
The wheel, which is lit by 60,000 light bulbs and offers views for miles with each capsule providing commentary on the sites.
There is one luxury capsule with a plasma screen TV and DVD, leather interior, glass floor, heating and air conditioning.
