Attractions open on Boxing Day
On a clear day the London Eye, the world's largest observation wheel, offers views as far as Windsor Castle, 25 miles away. Booking is advised but a number of tickets are held back for same-day sale on site, so it may be worth turning up and taking pot luck if you haven't booked, although weekends and school holidays tend to sell out in advance.Read more
This attraction promises an intoxicating mix of end-of-pier fun and eccentric artistry. Its owner, Tim Hunkin, makes coin-operated machines, some of which were once displayed in Covent Garden, others are still at his Southwold arcade The Under the Pier Show. At his new arcade you can see such machines as Is It Art? (an expert determines whether any presented object is art), Alien Probe ('Investigate the captive alien, but try not to annoy it'), the self-explanatory Autofrisk and, best of all, the regulator-evasion game of Money Laundering.Read more
