Located on the already worth visiting South Bank, the London Eye is a giant Ferris Wheel-style attraction that enables you to see some of city’s most famous and striking landmarks from the sky. Buildings such as Tower Bridge, Houses Of Parliament, Royal Gardens and Shard; as well as the historical waterway, the River Thames.
If you are a fan of the theatre and musicals and want to experience the best of this side of the arts outside of New York, you should include a trip to London’s West End. From here you can take in either a great new show or one of the many classics that are always playing.
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre
Following on from the West End, if you want to learn a little more about the time of Queen Elizabeth and one of the most famous sons of that era – William Shakespeare, you can at the Globe Theatre. Of course, it is not the original as that was burned to the ground in 1613. It is a faithfully restored and is great to take in a tour around one of the most important theatres in the world and even take in a performance of one of the Bard’s works.

Whether you want to see the various species of monkeys playing, the penguins waddling around on Penguin Beach or are more interested in the big cats – there is something for all animal lovers here.
Yet another of London’s iconic landmarks that was burned down and rebuilt is the busy and trendy Camden Market. It’s not hard to see why this place charms all that visit it as it offers everything from retro and vintage clothing to arts and crafts at competitive market prices.
