The London Eye:
Known as one of London's iconic landmarks, the London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel overlooking the South Bank of the River Thames. It stands at over 443ft tall and 394ft in diameter, and is currently Europe's biggest Ferris wheel. Built in 1999, the London Eye offers a high viewing point across the city. The wheel holds several passenger capsules which hold up to 25 people. Each capsule allows visitors to walk around freely, and a total rotation takes around 30 minutes to complete.
The Eden Project:
Located in beautiful Cornwall, The Eden Project is a multiple greenhouse complex and home to a wide variety of tropical plants from across the world. Three domes make up the complex, each with its own controlled environment and theme. Not only is this fantastic attraction a great centre for learning and discovery, but it also provides valuable research into plants and conservation. With some wonderful weather on its way, this is the best time to enjoy this South-England site.
