Anyone who has watched the opening to the BBC drama “Sherlock” has seen the London Eye. It’s that giant Ferris wheel on the water. It’s also the attraction that was mentioned in the opening of this section. Nearly four million people visit here each year, making it the UK’s busiest paid attraction. But this ain’t no county fair Ferris Wheel. Each car is an observation deck that has been built for comfort and to provide riders with great views of London. If there is a view worth seeing in London, you can probably see it from the London Eye. A must-see for visitors to the city, and it’s just a stone’s throw away from the Waterloo Station.
While you're making your trip to the London Eye, you should also wander around the South Bank. It’s easy to find. Just look for the Eye. That’s where it is. In fact, it could be argued that if you can only see one place, this is it. A trip to the South Bank offers you the chance to visit the Imperial War Museum, Shakespeare's Globe, to see some sea animals up close at the London Aquarium, and to take in some amazing cultural sights. It’s considered London’s cultural heart, so it’s unlikely that you’ll run out of things to do.
When you get hungry, the Southbank is an excellent place to be. The variety of food you can find in this area of London boggles the mind. As well as food stalls and restaurants on the Southbank, you're also a stone's throw away from Borough Market. Plus, if you're visiting London via Waterloo in the winter, you can make the most of the Southbank's delicious treats at its annual Christmas market.

What’s a trip to Great Britain without a literary romp, especially if that romp is through the world of “Alice in Wonderland.” Alice’s Adventures Underground allows visitors to eat, drink and be shrinky just like Lewis Carroll’s favorite rabbit hole adventurer.
