    2) London Eye 

    Standing at an impressive 443 feet tall, the London Eye gives you unsurpassable views for over 25 miles.

    3) Tower of London 

    Perched on the banks of the Thames this forbidding fortress has throughout history variously been a hotbed of political intrigue, the home of kings, a prison, the seat of government and the setting for foul murder and execution.
