. Apart from waiting in a huge line, the experience was definitely worth it. I didn’t particularly think such thing could be exciting, but seeing this amazing city from such height was kind of.. magical.
This is not some kind of thrilling experience (well unless you have fear of heights), rather calming I’d say and I would recommend this “attraction” for anyone visiting London, doesn’t really matter it’s your 1st or the 100th time. Have fun!
This bridge may seem small, but it offers a picturesque and romantic view. And it was built way back in 1740! Snacks are on sale at the entrance of the bridge, which can be useful as it's easy to get lost in London's maze of parks, and far from the main tourist streets you can quickly wind up feeling quite hungry (I know from experience!).
This bridge offers a great view of Battersea Power Station, which was built between the 1930's and 1950's and fueled the city until the 1980's. Today it stands abandoned, but it remains one of the most iconic buildings in London, having appeared on the covers of albums and in movies. The tracks passing under the bridge are for trains coming and going to Victoria Station. This is the oldest railway system in the world, and still one of the busiest. Access is quick on foot from Victoria Station.
Great views of St James' Park from the balcony of a penthouse. In this area you'll find legendary pubs like the Albert, and you can get a great, quick breakfast in a number of local cafes. A short walk will take you to Trafalgar Square and then on to Piccadilly.
