Together, the five iconic London attractions form a key part of London’s unique visitor experience, delving over, under and into the very heart of the city and its awe-inspiring legacy.

The history of these attractions dates back to 1835, when Marie Tussaud opened her first wax museum, Madame Tussauds. The attraction now transports fans into the midst of showbiz parties, political meetings, and action packed films for the ultimate fame experience.

The London Dungeon followed in 1974, originally also opened as a wax museum depicting the often-gruesome history of the city. It has since evolved into a fully immersive experience, bringing visitors face to face with Jack The Ripper, Sweeney Todd and many more of the city’s most notorious inhabitants. It delivers the sights, smells, sounds and feel of a dark past, bringing the “bad old days” to life.

SEA LIFE London Aquarium opened its doors in 1997, boasting the shark walk, which has quickly become a firm favourite for visitors of all ages. Visitors can brave the depths of the Pacific and trek through the Amazon Rainforest, all from London’s stunning South Bank.

Built to mark the new millennium, The lastminute.com London Eye has been offering panoramic views of England’s capital ever since. Location high above the city, it overlooks Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, offering unparalleled, spectacular views as far as Windsor Castle on a clear day.

Shrek’s Adventure marks the newest attraction of the five, delivering a little bit of magic to young children and their families. The attraction whisks visitors into the otherworldly Far Far Award, including a flying bus ride and more than a few face-to-face interactions with their favourite characters.
