The trip itself was ok with some interesting facts in the commentary and a different view of London, but we spent longer queuing, boarding at Westminster, re-positioning to board people at London Eye (why not just walk across the bridge, it's quicker?!) than we did...More

start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
