With its thriving nightlife scene, a rich collection of cultural offerings to explore, and some incredible shopping districts, London is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. If you’re thinking of planning a trip to stay in central London serviced apartments, then you can take your vacation to the next level with a few exciting high-rise experiences.
London is famous for its green parks and spaces, as well as its eclectic collection of architecture and buildings. It’s hard to get a great view of everything at once, but getting a height advantage can help you really make the most of your short stay in Mayfair.
Here are some ways to enjoy London’s best bird’s-eye views.
One of the best parts about booking central London serviced apartments for your trip, is that you get to stay right in the heart of the capital city. That means not having to wait for trains, taxis or buses to get to wherever you need to go.
One of the most popular ways to see London from above, is to visit the huge Ferris wheel on London’s South Bank. The London Eye rises to 443 feet on a thirty-minute journey. For the best experience, make sure that you book in advance, or arrive early enough to bypass the crowds.
Another solution, just a short journey from your London serviced apartments in Mayfair, is the Emirates Air Line – the first aerial tramway in London. The Air Line is capable of ferrying up to 2,500 people at a time over the Thames at heights of 300 feet.
The tramway was built to link London’s Royal Docks to Greenwich Peninsula, and the cable car offers some pretty incredible views of Canary Wharf and many other east London sights during a brief trip of just 10 minutes.
Another way to get a few views from the top is to visit some of the tallest buildings that London has to offer. As the tallest building in Western Europe, the view from the Shard is enough to give you some incredible sights of vistas even further out than central London.
You can also enjoy some of the most iconic views around for free from Waterloo Bridge, where you can see the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf, the Royal Festival Hall, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and St Paul’s Cathedral.
