The London Eye *

Europe's tallest ferris wheel happens to be in London
Staked at a southside edge of the Thames in a seemingly precarious but imposing position halfway between the Palace of Westminster and the Southbank Centre, the 443-feet-high London Eye (135 metres) might not appeal to an acrophobe looking for that final souvenir attraction to cap off a trip to London. But for those not so afflicted, the Eye offers a stunning bird's eye return to London landmarks conquered on land during the trip. A recommended if pricey end-of-visit activity. Within walking distance of Trafalgar Square, accessed via the Golden Jubilee Bridges [linked with Hungerford Bridge], whose towering pylons appear to be siblings of the equally stylish Eye, all of whom glisten magically after dark. Tube station: Embankment, then walk over the bridge. Plus Waterloo and Westminster.
