London Eye is centrally located in the heart of the capital, gracefully rotating over the River Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. At 135 metres, the Coca-Cola London Eye is the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel; a feat of design and engineering it has become the modern symbol representing the capital and a global icon. The experience showcases breathtaking 360 degree views of the capital and its famous landmarks and has been the number one visitor experience in the city for the past decade.

The gradual rotation in one of the 32 high-tech glass capsules takes approximately 30 minutes and gives you an ever-changing perspective of London. Within each capsule, interactive guides allow you to explore the capital's iconic landmarks in several languages.

Stop At: Westminster Abbey, 20 Dean's Yard Broad Sanctuary, London SW1P 3PA England

Westminster Abbey, is a large, mainly Gothic abbey church in the City of Westminster, London, England, just to the west of the Palace of Westminster. It is one of the United Kingdom's most notable religious buildings and the traditional place of coronation and burial site for English and, later, British monarchs.
According to a tradition first reported by Sulcard in about 1080, a church was founded at the site (then known as Thorn Ey (Thorn Island)) in the seventh century, at the time of Mellitus, a Bishop of London. Construction of the present church began in 1245, on the orders of King Henry III.
Since the coronation of William the Conqueror in 1066, all coronations of English and British monarchs have been in Westminster Abbey. There have been 16 royal weddings at the Abbey since 1100. As the burial site of more than 3,300 persons, usually of predominant prominence in British history (including at least sixteen monarchs, eight prime ministers, poets laureate, actors, scientists, and military leaders, and the Unknown Warrior), Westminster Abbey is sometimes described as 'Britain's Valhalla’, after the iconic burial hall of Norse mythology.
Westminster abbey had the status of a cathedral for 10 years (1540-1550) under the rule of Henry VIII. By granting the abbey cathedral status, Henry VIII gained an excuse to spare it from the destruction or dissolution which he inflicted on most English abbeys during the Reformation of the English Church.
The abbey was restored to the Benedictines under the Catholic Mary I of England. However. In 1560, Elizabeth re-established Westminster as a ‘Royal Peculiar’ – a church of the Church of England responsible directly to the Sovereign.
On 29 April 2011, the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton occurred at the Abbey.
The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries have been created in the triforium of the abbey. This is a display area for the abbey's treasures in the galleries high up around the abbey's nave. Moreover, a new gothic access tower with a lift was designed by the abbey architect and Surveyor of the Fabric, Ptolemy Dean and is open to visit today.
The deep history of Westminster Abbey makes it a central and iconic part of London’s heritage.
