London: Attraction Tickets and Tours
The London Eye is the highest ferris wheel in Europe and draws more than 3.5 million visitors a year. When it was first built in 1999, it got the title of being the tallest ferris wheel in the world.
Within walking distance from the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye gained extraordinary popularity with its 135 meters height and 129 meters radius. From the glass cocoon, you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the city.
That is why it is one of the first things to do in London. The London Eye is the number one attraction in London, and something not to be missed during your visit to the capital.
Opening its doors on 31 December 1999, the Eye, now called the Coca-Cola London Eye allows visitors to enjoy 360-degree views over the city. On a clear day, you can see as far as 40 miles away, right over to Windsor Castle!
A rotation takes half an hour, and an interactive guide within your warm, comfortable, enclosed capsule will give you information on the sights you’re seeing. These guides are available in several different languages.
Standing at 135 meters high, the London Eye is the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel and is designed to give visitors an up close and personal experience of the capital in all its glory.
Located on the South Bank of the Thames, the Eye sits directly opposite the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.
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.
The Royal Botanic Gardens or shortly Kew Gardens is the name of the park that consists of gardens and botanic glasshouses.
This botanic garden, hosting about 38,000 different plant types, is located right in the middle of the city.
With its variety of plants that are running the risk of becoming extinct, it is the perfect place to visit for the nature-enthusiasts.
The Shard (Shard London Bridge sometimes) is a skyscraper located in London.
The building that is 309.6 meters height and counts 95 floors and is the tallest skyscraper in the European Union, the fourth in Europe, the 87th in the world.
The observation deck is located at 244 height, and it allows visitors to see 60 km further from the Shard in clear weather.
Inside the studios, it is possible to visit the entire cinematographic set of Harry Potter.
Visitors can walk through the corridors of Hogwarts, knock on the door of Privet Drive number 4, have a sip of “butterbeer”, and have a brief quidditch experience.
Since Harry Potter went viral in the world and won children's and grownups' hearts, visiting Warner Bros is not only a place where to bring your childrens.
Harry Potter's Studios are therefore a perfect location to spend a magic day with kids and family.
The Warner Bros Studio in London is one of the most popular attractions just outside of the city itself, and it makes for a fantastic and exciting day out for all the family.
This attraction is named the Making of Harry Potter and is a homage to the series of films which are extremely famous and well loved by all age groups across the globe.
The Warner Bros Studio Tour is a walking tour, so you need to wear comfortable footwear, and it will take you behind the scenes of how the films were made, as well as into the magic of Hogwarts itself!
Learn all about the secrets and facts of the movie, and have a truly magical experience. The Warner Bros Studios are less than one hours’ drive away from London, making it easy to visit far from the hustle and bustle of the city.
