Attractions in London
London is one of the most visited places in Europe and there are many things to see and do while you are there. I have found a couple of popular attractions that you can check out during your visit. Below are my recommendations.

The most famous feature outside the 'Westminster palace' is the Clock Tower, commonly known as Big Ben. Ben is the bell hanging inside and is named after Benjamin Hall, the commissioner of works when the tower was completed in 1858.A light at the top of the tower is illuminated, when the Parliament is sitting at night. If youâ€™re very keen (and a UK resident) you can apply in writing for a free tour of the Clock Tower.

The London Eye is the biggest observation wheel in the world. It is situated on the bank of the river Thames and rises 135 metres into the sky. An entire revolution of the London Eye takes a full 30 minutes, giving you a great, relaxed view of 25 miles around. I'd suggest you ride it either on your first day in London, to get yourself oriented with the city, or on your last day, to have one last look before you leave.
