This is a neat overview of London if you bundle it with the London Pass and go to as many other covered places as possible. Also make sure you have a flexible schedule so you can fit this in among or on your clearest days...More

This is a great view of London, but it is pretty pricey if you are not visiting as part of the London Pass. Also you aren’t allowed to sit when you’re up there. The only place to sit has table service so you should be...More

After all the hype this was not so great. Nothing to compare to the burj khalifa tower in Dubai. The lift journey was disappointing. Burj khalifa you can actually experience seeing the floors you are climbing. This is just a lift going up. Boring. Views...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

We queued for a short while (10 minutes) and got tickets straight away, so unless you go at peak times there should not be a problem. However, I would recommend booking on-line in advance if you are able to, this way you... More
