Located on the banks of the Thames, the famous London Eye will take you up to admire in all directions, London’s skyline and all the most famous monuments of the city. You will make the tour of this imposing Ferris wheel in thirty minutes, the time for you to familiarize yourself a little more with the city and to appreciate its extent. It is indeed the largest observation wheel in the world, the most visited attraction in London and a nice starting point for your visit of the city.
Big Ben, Elizabeth Tower
You obviously can not leave London without going there. The Palace of Westminster is an important monument of the city, which can be visited and houses the British Parliament. The best is still to pass by before or after the London Eye since it also borders the Thames. Just cross the bridge of the same name to get the best view. The palace is huge and contains over 1000 pieces. Right next to it is the Elizabeth Tower, which can not be visited but remains one of the most emblematic monuments of the city with the famous Big Ben at its top, which is actually the name of the huge bell of the Elizabeth Tower and which gives the time to Londoners.
Ah, the famous Queen's Castle, which is open to visitors all summer long. Symbol of the British constitutional monarchy, the palace hosts many royal events throughout the year such as state banquets, lunches, dinners, receptions and garden parties given by the Queen and / or the Royal Family. If you are trying to make the famous photo with the impassive guards of the queen, you can do it here. You will also be able to attend the changing of the guard if you arrive at the right moment.
Tower of London
It is on the banks of the Thames but this time on the East side of the city. You will have the best view of this famous fortified construction arriving from the Tower Bridge. For the record, in 900 years of history, the building has been used alternately as a royal palace, fortress, prison and place of execution, hotel of the currency, arsenal, menagerie and jewelry fort. It is therefore possible to visit the jewels of the Queen at the Tower of London but beware, it is forbidden to take pictures under penalty of imprisonment.
