Top London Historical Attractions

London is a city of wonders and heritage, and should you choose to embark on a visit, the sheer range of sights and experiences to be had are next to limitless.


Coca-Cola London-Eye

This one of the most symbolic of attractions as far as London is concerned. At an astounding135 metre, the London-Eye is the tallest cantilevered observation wheel in existence. Given it is located at the very heart of London near to many hotels near Hyde Park, London and adjacent to the House of Parliament and Big Ben, the London-Eye will enable anyone to glimpse the iconic city in all her glory, while providing you many accommodation options such as Berjaya Eden Park and many others around. Each capsule contains an interactive-guide that will dispense information about the famous land-marks in several languages.


Madame Tussaud's Wax-Museum

Definitely one of the most iconic museums on the planet, this legendary establishment contains exhibits relating to everything from history to the red carpet. The present day museum features walk-in sets that are photo-realistic representations of scenes from the Star Wars series of films. One can also pose with equally realistic wax-figurines from David Beckham to Benedict Cumberbatch. The range of personalities on display is un-paralleled at the notorious Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum.


The Tower of London

Although one might associate the Tower of London with torture and medieval brutality, there is a bounty of history to be discovered within its walls. As much as it served as a fortress, it also played the part of royal palace, and at one point, even the first London Zoo. You can even gaze upon priceless royal jewels or embark on a tour with a beef-eater who will share the many tales the Tower of London has to offer. You can even stand in the place where many a famous head had fallen following the grim beheading of the owner.


The Shard

Perhaps the newest and most striking addition to London's skyline is the massive architectural master-piece known as The Shard. Most people visit this iconic building to gaze upon London from her pinnacle. The Shard stands at over eight hundred feet tall, more than twice that of any other vantage point in the city. In fact, the top of this magnificent structure is the only place in London where the entire city can be glimpsed at once. A visit to London would be wasted if one doesn't experience the breath-taking view from the top of The Shard.


ZSL London Zoo

Ever since its opening during the year 1847, the colossal zoo has been inspiring and educating people on the nature of a diverse range of wild-life. The zoo boasts a series of exhibits collectively featuring an astonishing 750 species of creatures. The most recent exhibit, The Land of the Lions, serves as a state-of-the-art breeding ground for endangered Asiatic Lions, of which only 400 exist in their natural habitat. This incredible exhibit cost just under six million pounds to construct, so if you ever find yourself in London, this incredible sanctuary should definitely be on your list of things to see.
