There are many great attractions in London for all people. Whether you’re looking for culture, fun, thrills or history, this is the place you will find everything.
One of the most exciting and interesting attractions in London is the Tower Of London, also known as Her Majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress.
It was founded originally in 1066 as part of the Norman conquest of England. There are lots of things to see and do at the tower. Firstly visiting the Queens crown jewels is a must, followed by walking through the rich colours and comfortable furnishings of the Medieval Palace. The best way to enjoy the experience however is to take the 60 minute Yeoman Warder tour and hear all the exciting tales of the Tower’s past.
Another great way to see the attractions of London can be to visit the London Eye.
The London Eye is one of the largest Ferris wheels in Europe, and shows panoramic views of the city, which lasts long enough for you to really soak it all up. It is based on the River Thames, so it is amazing to see the whole city, and makes it easy to get around. It is described by its operators as the world’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel.
There are many ways to end your visit to London. One of the best ways is to enjoy one of the fine theatre shows. One of the best shows is The Woman In Black, which is a scary and intense thrill which you are unlikely to find anywhere else. There are hundreds of shows in production, making it difficult to choose. If you’ve earned enough points on your Velocity rewards card or other rewards card, you may be able to redeem them against the cost of a show.
