The Shard is the highest of highs in London, a sci-fi skyscraper that allows you to step out into the open on the 72nd floor with London as a tapestry beneath you. The London Eye is an architectural wonder, a gentle ride cantilevered over the Thames in the glass capsules of a unique Ferris Wheel directly opposite the neo-Gothic Houses of Parliament. Nearby, there are sharks waiting in the London Aquarium, where more than 600 species live in a wonderland of huge tanks at Europe's largest aquarium.
You can dive into London's rowdy past at two of the most popular experiences. Shakespeare's Globe reminds us all that the English language's most brilliant playwright was the most popular and controversial of his day, at a faithful recreation of the theatre where William Shakespeare's plays were seen in London. For those wanting even more zest to their history, the London Dungeon is an essential thrill-ride through 1,000 years of history that will leave you awe-struck and gasping for more. Highs, lows and everything in between: when it comes to experiences, London has them all.
