British Airways London Eye and County Hall

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageUnarguably one of London’s most famous attractions, the London Eye is the World’s tallest observation wheel. Owing to its popularity, a ‘flight’ on the London Eye requires booking in advance and on some occasions queuing as well. The experience however is more than worth the effort. From the highest point on the wheel, the view of the city is breathtaking, and people claim you can see as far away as 40km.

Right next to the London Eye is the County Hall which is home to the magnificent London Aquarium. The County Hall was formerly the home of the Greater London Council, and is situated directly across the Thames from the House of the Parliament.
At the London Aquarium one can see over 350 different aquatic species from around the world housed in enormous water tanks.
Nestled in the County Hall is the Dali Universe which contains a permanent exhibition of over 500 works of art including the painting Spellbound which was crafted exclusively for the Alfred Hitchcock thriller by the same name, and the red sofa made  in the shape of Mae West’s Lips.
County Hall also has two hotels and many different bars and restaurants and an entertainment centre with a bowling alley, pool table and video games.
