Sights of London

United Kingdom

Which makes for a more rewarding London cultural experience: Observing a good old debate in the Houses of Parliament on one side of the River Thames, or viewing this history-drenched city from the top of the London Eye on the other? Public opinion would favor the London Eye, now the biggest tourist attraction in the United Kingdom and Europe’s largest Ferris wheel. Built to honor the last turn of the century, this “cantilevered observation wheel” -- as its operators fondly call it -- offers much to observe. Cries of “There’s Big Ben!” and “There’s Buckingham Palace!” are even more delightful than the shouts and grumbles in the House of Lords nearby.
