London Eye Experience - London - Our Awesome Planet-2.jpg

The LONDON EYE is the iconic giant Ferris Wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London, also known as the Millennium Wheel.

It is Europe's tallest Ferris Wheel at 135 metres (443 ft) in height and a wheel diameter of 120 metres (394 ft). It's a popular British icon that even my boys know about and want to ride someday.

COVENT GARDEN is a historic building converted into a shopping centre in 1980. It's famous for its cute cafes, pubs, small stalls, a craft market called Apple Market, and a tiangge called Jubilee Hall.  

It's popular among Filipinos looking for a bargain and a cool place to eat before watching a show on the West End. According to Pepper, this is also the best place for Forex if you're looking for a high exchange rate for your dollar.
