Harry Potter

Warner Bros Studios - The making of Harry Potter: There isn’t anybody I can think of who hasn’t seen or heard of Harry Potter, the book and movie series that inspired an entire generation of children and adults alike. You can explore the magical wizarding world and relive the experiences from the series that is enjoyed internationally from all corners of the world. The studio tour experience features the sets, props and costumes used in the production of the movies. You will have the opportunity to record yourself in iconic scenes which you can take home and show your family and friends.

 

London Eye

Coca Cola London Eye: The world famous attraction that so many visit every day to see all of London in its mesmerising glory. Located by the River Thames, the London Eye holds 25 passengers in each of its 32 capsules, so there will definitely be room for you and your friends. This is a must-see for any tourist or resident of London to have experienced at least once in their lifetime.

 

Madame Tussauds: Located just a few tube stops away from the London Eye, Madame Tussauds houses life-sized wax models of famous celebrities and historical icons. This exciting museum allows you to see lifelike replicas of those you recognise from movies or sports and take photos with them so that you can show your friends who you’ve met, in the wax, rather than in the flesh.

 

Shakespeare Globe Theatre

Shakespeare’s Globe Exhibition and Globe Theatre: We’ve all heard of William Shakespeare, historically famous as an English poet, playwright and actor between the late 16th century and early 17th century. The Globe was built next to the River Thames to replicate Shakespeare’s original theatre that burnt down in 1613. Today audiences can experience the Shakespearean era of drama yet again, this is the perfect place to visit if you want to experience something different.

 

Tower of London: Another major attraction located by the River Thames, the Tower of London was built by William the Conqueror in 1078. Historically the symbol of oppression used to imprison, throughout time, the Tower of London became an armoury, a treasury, a menagerie, a public record office and home of the Royal Mint. Today, the Tower of London houses the Crown Jewels which attract visitors far and wide.
