A view from above from the Ferris Wheel in the Jardin des Tuileries

Grande Roue - Ferris Wheel, Paris, July 2015

Every year within a section of the Jardin des Tuileries, the garden turns into a lively fête foraine (summer fairground), and this year sees its 30th anniversary. With over 80 different attractions to explore and experience, the Fête des Tuileries is great for all the family.

Recently I headed up la Grand Roue, aka the Ferris wheel, to see some amazing views of Paris above. I decided to ascend in the evening, with the hope of seeing the incredible sunset from overhead. Even though I didn’t, the views of the city did not fail to impress as always. Here are a few photos that I took.

If you would like to head up the Grand Roue, the Fête des Tuileries is open until 23rd August 2015.
