Tower of London
Because this is one of London’s most popular attractions, you can expect a wait, so it’s always best to book your tickets well ahead of time, to avoid queuing or disappointment. The London Eye is also placed in the ideal location, close to many of London’s most iconic sights. This means you can easily sightsee after your 30 minute ride, including perhaps a Thames River cruise, visiting the Houses of Parliament, checking out Big Ben, or venturing to the Tower of London. Of course, the London Eye opened on New Year’s Eve 1999, marking the start of the new Millennium in style. From that day on, this has been an attraction that makes your entire visit to London, and is one certainly not to be missed. Children will love the experience, so it’s a great family day out too.
