London


This post features some of the greatest spots to view in London. The famous dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral and the myriad riverside attractions or the looming monuments of Trafalgar Square and Buckingham Palace are some noteworthy places, but London has no shortage of these photo-worthy places. You’ll have to get up on a high place to see some cool things in London. Some of these cool places are provided here,

1. London Eye

The great iconic symbol of the London is the London Eye, one of the most popular ways to experience the capital from up high.  You can see the giant Ferris wheel towers which are 443-foot over the Thames and that view is amazing when the futuristic glass capsules make it a landmark in itself, this view is amazing. The London Eye essentially offers a 360° panorama, which is unique in itself. In this 30-minute ride you’ll have plenty of time to spot all the city center’s attractions like the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, St. James’ Park, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, and

If you visit this place at night, fun will be added, and you’ll experience the most atmospheric experience watching the skies at nighttime and you’ll see the riverbanks glittering stream of lights and the horizon speckled with neon. Tickets cost £18.60 on the day, but advance booking is recommended to skip the queues.

2. St. Paul’s Cathedral

No one leaves London without paying a visit to the famous St. Paul’s Cathedral where you can take a climb into the galleries and check out the views. A goodly amount of 250 steps will take you to the upper ring of the giant dome including the famed Whispering Gallery on the way up. From the gallery you’ll have to go for those final 50 steps to reach the outdoor viewing deck of the Golden Gallery. You’ll get a great bird’s eye view of the Houses of Parliament and a view down the Thames.

3. The Monument


The Monument is built in the memory of the Great Fire of London in 1966. It is 200 feet into the air. It’s open to tourists too, who can wonder at the real-time camera shots or climb to the viewing deck just below the iconic flaming fireball atop the monument.
