The London Dungeon could be a perfect choice for visitors seeking to find out more about London’s often grim past, but when the thrills and excitement of this iconic attraction are over, what else is there to do in the local area?
Well, when it comes to unique and informative attractions in the City of Westminster, visitors to this bustling London district really are spoilt for choice:
London Sea Life Aquarium
The London Sea Life Aquarium could be a must-see attraction for fans of all things nautical, with the attraction located on the popular South Bank of the River Thames and one of the UK’s best sea life centres.
Open Mondays to Sundays from 10am until 7pm (last entry at 6pm), the centre offers the chance for visitors of all ages to get up close and personal with many amazing creatures of the deep.
Coca-Cola London Eye
Individuals looking for some of the best views in the whole of the capital should head along to the Coca-Cola London Eye – which is the world’s tallest cantilevered ferris wheel.
Guests can book a place in one of the 32 capsules that reach heights of up to 440 ft and be sure they will get a fantastic view of the surrounding area, including such landmarks as the City of London and the Palace of Westminster.
Officially the Elizabeth Tower, Big Ben is one of the most iconic landmarks in the whole of London, with its name relating to the great bell that rings the hours and not the structure itself.
Completed in 1859, the great clock has kept time at the northern edge of the Houses of Parliament for more than 150 years and remains one of the most popular attractions for visitors to the area.
The Palace of Westminster
With a history spanning almost 1,000 years, the Palace of Westminster is the home of democracy in England and has been the seat of governance since the times of the Anglo-Saxons.
Situated on the banks of the River Thames and home to the Houses of Parliament, this imposing and breathtaking building was designed by Sir Charles Barry and is a living reminder of the importance of democratic rule to the British people.
Visitors can enjoy guided tours of the palace, although many of the most sensitive areas are normally off-limits to the public – just don’t count on bumping into the prime minister!
