Emirates Airline: This is a cheap and cheerful ride across the river Thames with great views of its own. See local attractions, such as Canary Wharf, Cutty Sark, Thames Barrier and Greenwich Peninsular to name a few! Worth a ride if you’re on a budget, or just fancy seeing something different.
St Paul’s Cathedral: A must-see London attraction in its own right, but ensure you take a trip to the top of the dome for some great views of the city too.
Duck & Waffle / Sushi Samba: Both located in the Heron Tower; Duck & Waffle is the city’s highest 24/7 restaurant, one floor above Sushi Samba. Sushi Samba is a vibrant place to eat and drink with a great outdoor terrace. The food is amazing in both venues, definitely worth a visit!
Big Ben: This one is for the Londoners… Did you know that you can actually go to the top if Big Ben? You need to be a UK resident, but you get to climb to the top for free! You will need to contact your MP for more info on this, but it’s a great view, from such a historical and iconic London site.
