It's currently owned by the Merlin Entertainment Group who runs some of the big theme parks in the UK and Madame Tussaud in London & Blackpool.



Past history of owners of the London Eye:-
The London Eye's original owners were British Airways, Marks Barfield, and the Tussauds Group. Tussauds became the sole owner in 2006. The following year Tussauds was sold to the Blackstone Group, a private equity firm that folded the London Eye into its Merlin Entertainments Group.
