Tower Bridge

Designed by Sir Horace Jones and opened in 1894, Tower Bridge is one of London's most recognizable landmarks. This famous monument is built on the River Thames and overlooks the iconic Tower of London. Due to the volume of river traffic in the 19th Century, the Tower Bridge was designed to have twin bascules that could be raised. One of the most fascinating features of the bridge is the Victorian-era engine room that houses the coal-powered motors used to raise the bridge lifts. The two towers, the North Tower and South Tower, are open to visitors. There is a glass-covered enclosed walkway that runs between the two that offers a bird's-eye view of vibrant city life.

London Eye

Known as both the London Eye or the Millennium Wheel, this huge 137-meter (450-foot) Ferris wheel on the South Bank gives a fabulous bird's eye view of London. The spectacular views from the top stretch as far as 40 kilometers (25 miles) in every direction on a clear day to include views of Windsor. Its inception at the turn of the 21st Century conferred upon it the title of 'the Millennium Wheel', symbolic of the progress made thus far and the promise of a glorious future. The London Eye has since come to be an icon of the city skyline, renowned as the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel and one of the city's highest observation points. Each of the glass-encased pods of the London Eye can transport up to 25 passengers around its 120-meter(394-foot) diameter at a leisurely pace, a circuit that takes close to 30 minutes to complete. For the duration of the ride, the city and its many attractions lie sprawled all around for a glimpse of London's girth in a single sweep.

Churchill War Rooms

Within the Cabinet War Rooms, the museum captures the public and private life and achievements of the British leader and icon. Separated into five chapters, take a glimpse at the young Winston Churchill and his life as a politician, statesman and war leader. The museum has over 150 original objects including Churchill's baby rattle and his trench periscope used on the Western Front. There are also numerous documents, photographs, and audiovisual and interactive displays. For anyone interested in the history of the 20th Century, this exhibit is a must.

The Photographers' Gallery

The Photographers' Gallery was the first independent gallery in Britain to be solely devoted to photography. It hosts multiple temporary exhibitions, which focus on high-quality international contemporary photography. A visit here is always full of surprises, as no two exhibitions are alike. There's also an excellent bookshop, which stocks over 5000 titles and runs a worldwide mail order service. There is no admission fee, however some exhibitions may be charged.

The View from The Shard

Journey to the clouds where an ethereal vista of the metropolis awaits you, and see the Ben, Eye, Bridge, Palace and Thames in a way like never before. Soaring above London, The View from The Shard is the highest viewing deck in the city, offering 360-degree panoramic views from a spellbinding height of 244 meters (800 feet). Opened to the public in early 2013, this iconic attraction above The Shard is based on three levels- 68, 69 and 72. Supersonic elevators fitted with multimedia take you to 'The View' in merely ear-popping 30 seconds. From the topmost level on floor 72, the spectacular view of the shimmering city unravels and if you look above then you will see the shards of glass melting into the heavens. This one is truly an experience you can't afford to miss, so book your tickets ahead.
