  • London, SE1 9TA

Many Londoners were none too happy when in this Millennium Wheel as was first known was erected to commemorate the "turning of the century". Now known simply as the London Eye, locals have softened and have even taken a ride or two in one of the 32 capsules which hold up to 25 people each. Views up to 25 miles can be observed on a clear day and evening rides are available to see an illuminated London. Weddings, private events and children's birthday parties are held within the London Eye's pods. Even with pre-booked capsules expect lines; however, entertainment in the area is abundant with street performers, a playground and a carousel. Grab the camera because the best part of the London Eye is the most breath-taking view of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament across the Thames at ground level. read more about London Eye

Covent Garden Piazza

Covent Garden Piazza

Sheltered beneath a beautiful Victorian iron-and-glass structure that once held England's largest fruit and vegetable market, (now relocated to Nine Elms, just south of the river) are the shops and restaurants that make up the heart of Covent Garden. Its famous piazza  is the only area of London licensed for street entertainment and all performers are quality-checked before they are allowed to perform. There's a nice buzz to the place (we particularly like the buskers and craft stalls) even if it is quite touristy and at peak times gets uncomfortably busy.

Dedicated to Her Majesty's Household Division which protects the Sovereign and Royal Palaces... in other words, dedicated to those who wear the red tunic and bearskin hat! Small and quiet, The Guards Museum is a perfect place to learn more about the royal guards and even have your photo taken in that famous regimental tunic and hat. On display are uniforms, helmets, instruments, medals, a tent from the Crimean War and more. There's a little shop next door to the Guards Museum and you might even catch the new guards forming at nearby Wellington Barracks before the Changing of the Guard ceremony at London's Buckingham Palace. read more about The Guards Museum

Want an off-the-wall way to tour the city by bus and by boat without ever changing seats then this is it. See all of London's landmarks such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament and more. Board a bright yellow, 30 seater amphibious craft, formerly known as DUKWS, once used in the D-Day landings for an approximate 80 minute tour which includes the 20 minute splash into the River Thames. Thrilling family fun and a tour certainly no one will forget.
