Get to know the city’s beating heart and great contrasts as you pass historic sites such as Big Ben, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and the Tower of London, and contemporary landmarks like the Tate Modern and Millennium Bridge. Then, ride the London Eye for sweeping views.

We had good time with London Eye River Cruise. If we were younger we would certainly have taken the optional Standard London Eye. As Senior Citizens we didn't feel comfortable taking the wheel although we are sure it would have been thoroughly enjoyable.
We highly recommend taking the cruise and if possible the wheel.
