London Dungeon is somewhere that I have visited twice now and the most recent one was last year.London Dungeon is located on Tooley Street and with London Bridge being the nearest railway station.Tickets prices are dependant on when you visit and if you book in advance.The London Dungeons experience will begin as soon as you arrive to either queue or use the priority booking entrance and there will be actors there who may well be a little bit cheeky or even down right rude but this is really just in jest and although I found some of their comments a tad inoffensive I only had to wait around 2 minutes to enter and then when we left the one actor I disliked had left h...Read More

Attraction | "The Ultimate One Stop Shop!"

Quote:
Harrods is a department store located on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, London and is part of the Harrods brand which have several other enterprises under it's belt such as Harrods Aviation & Air Harrods. The store itself is something that I find to be instantly recognisable as it is currently one of the largest department stores in the word and is one that I thoroughly visiting, even if just for a browse.The store itself occupies a 4.5 acre site and has around 300 different departments within. It really would be quite possible to spend several days exploring the different areas of the store and spending enough money to clear all third world debt! Several of the department...Read More

Attraction | "I'm Off to See the Queen"

Quote:
Buckingham Palace is one attraction in London which is often high on many tourists list when coming to visit London and I had walked past a few times and found myself in awe of the beauty of the building. On a trip to London last year I decided that enough was enough and I was going to visit the Palace and experience it's true splendour and beauty for myself. The nearest tube station is Green Park and this is where we departed. The Palace is well signposted and took just five or ten minutes at an average walking speed (read - slow). Buckingham Palace stands amazingly tall and is one of the most instantly recognisable landmarks in the world. It has 828,818 square foot of floorsp...Read More

The London Eye

Attraction | "My Spin on the Millennium Wheel"

Quote:
As a young child London was something that conjured up some amazing images for me and I never imagined that one day I would live a 30 minute train journey away from London Liverpool St. Suddenly all of these wonderful places and areas I had only read about in books or seen on the television were mine for the exploring and as I became a young adult it was even better as I could just flit off to London whenever the mood took me and funds permitted.I have visited the London Eye twice now, once back in 2005 and once more recently and both times I have been very fortunate with nice weather & relatively clear skies enabling me to see further and further across longer on the two seperate trip...Read More
