The first installation, at the National Railway Museum, operated from 12 April 2006 until 2 November 2008.

The second installation, at The Royal York Hotel, operated from 13 December 2011 until 30 September 2013.

It was also known as the Wheel of York or York Wheel.

The Yorkshire Wheel was originally intended to be placed in the Tower Gardens on the other side of the River Ouse, opposite Cliffords Tower; however, because of residents' protests, the National Railway Museum site was preferred by the City of York Council. In its first six months, the wheel carried 200,000 passengers.

It was the first wheel of its kind in North Yorkshire, and was inspired by the London Eye which opened a few years earlier.

At 54 metres (177 ft), it was somewhat smaller than the 135 metres (443 ft) of the London Eye, but could be no higher than York Minster, York's skyline height limit.

All its British wheels were bought by Dubai-based Freij Entertainment International, for operation by its UK subsidiary Wheels Entertainments.

In February 2013 an application by Freij Entertainment International for the Yorkshire Wheel to remain in place until 30 November 2013 was considered by the City of York Council's planning committee.

The operation of the wheel differed from that of the London Eye: visitors were allowed several rotations, and the wheel stopped to load and unload passengers.

It had 42 passenger gondolas, including a VIP gondola with glass floor, screen, radio, and leather interior. Norwich Union, which has its headquarters in York, were the sponsors of the wheel, but that ended in late July 2007, after which the White Rose of York was added to the wheel's centre.

Donna Modafferi jokingly said of her dog Charlie, "Trying to get this girl married so she can get out of my house." In addition to speed dating, the event featured themed snacks for the dogs and owners and a special showing of Disney's "Lady and the Tramp" to really get the romance going.
