    London Eye

    570 reviews

    I do not get a giant ferris wheel in the middle of London. I only half-way got the one in Chicago's World's Fair when the ferris wheel was innovative. That said, younger people seem to enjoy seeing London while taking a ferris wheel spin. This is something that you would either love or hate to do - no middle ground.

    Trafalgar Square

    306 reviews

    Trafalgar Square sits in front of the National Gallery. But you can enjoy art in the Square itself. Check out Nelson's Column and the plinths which sit at the corners of the square. The empty fourth plinth is the site of ever changing artistic works. And everyone climbs one of the lions to take a photo.

    Westminster Abbey

    Westminster Abbey is another must for history buffs. I almost didn't go till a friend talked me into it..but was blown away by its history.

    Madame Tussaud's

    Le statue sono splendide ma dopo i primi 5 minuti lo stupore della perfetta esecuzione si affievolisce e il prezzo del biglietto torna alla mente! ideale per giornate di pioggia in cui si cerca un riparo per passare un po' di tempo al caldo!
