London Eye

One of the city’s newest but most-loved icons, the slowly revolving wheel that stands by the Thames continues to be a tourist favourite. Each glass-walled pod is designed to allow everyone (who dares) views to the north, south, east and west, making this a brilliant way to get the measure of London. And each visit now starts with a fun, 4D short film before you board. Don’t miss: The ‘Champagne Experience’ option if you fancy a romantic date gliding high at sunset. Book Now

View from the Shard

Where better to put a massive observation gallery than at the top of Western Europe’s tallest tower? Set across three floors, with floor-to-ceiling windows and an open-air terrace for the bravest among you, the View from the Shard has ‘tell-scopes’ so you can find out more about the landscape you’re looking at. Regular events include silent discos and yoga mornings. Don’t miss: Monthly ‘object handling’ sessions hosted by the Museum of London, where families can get hands-on with archeological finds that reveal secrets from the city’s history.Book Now
