5 attractions you can see from the London Eye

Originally built as a temporary structure to mark the millennium, London's magnificent ferris wheel remains one of the city's best-loved attractions to this day. Here are a few other top landmarks to try spotting from its 135-meter peak!

St. Paul's Cathedral

St. Paul's Cathedral

Look north to see Christopher Wren's crowning achievement. St. Paul's Cathedral was the city's tallest building from 1710 to as recently as 1962!

Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace

Over the river to the west is another jewel of London's landmarks. Buckingham Palace is sandwiched between Big Ben and Hyde Park!

Tower of London & Tower Bridge

Tower of London & Tower Bridge

London's most famous bridge and castle can be seen downriver to the east. You'd be able to see Shakespeare's Globe, too, if the Tate Modern wasn't in the way!

Battersea Power Station

Battersea Power Station

London's sights mostly lie north of the river, but some of its more humble are to the south, such as the iconic Battersea Power Station and the Oval Cricket Ground.

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

On a clear day you can see as far as Windsor Castle. It's the longest-occupied palace in Europe, and for good reason, too, if it's grand enough to be spotted from 40km away!
