First, allow me to THANK all YOU guys for supporting my blog. Every time I saw that star and the comments sign in every article I posted here, it made me feel overwhelmed. You don’t know how much joy you brought to me.🙂 Again guys from the deepest emotion of my heart♥ I am gratefully THANKFUL for all your EFFORT’s by STOPPING here in my page, and most of all leaving the marked through your LIKES and COMMENTS. APPRECIATED it very much, and in returns with that I’ll assure you that I’ll do the same thing on yours too. ♥♥♥:)
The following photos are my wonders through the London Eye. At first when I heard the London Eye I have no idea about it, I fondled thinking about at least a clue for me but instead of asking through that conversation with a friends, I run through to my brilliant friend Mr.Google and I think I recovered good-by then lol.:)
The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel situated on the banks of the River Thames in London. The entire structure is 135 metres tall and the wheel has a diameter of 120 metres. It is the tallest ferris wheel in Europe, and it was opened to the public since March of 2000 since then it become the most focal point attraction in England.
We we’re on the line of the Fast Track that can give us the priority boarding but the price is double to the normal line or more I think! But the officer in charge is very kind and nice who told us to be in the normal line as it won’t be needed to be in the Fast Track by then because it’s winter, and not much people waiting in the line. She send us to the normal line and we end-up paying 16£ for my husband and I. There we saved more than what we expected, plus the waiting took us only few minutes, so that’s not bad at all.:)
The next night I dragged my husband for a walk to enjoy the night scene around so I can have my night scene photography around the area, and Big Ben is part of my list.
We stayed at Crown Plaza hotel at St.James street about 180£ a night for this type of season and more during the weekends. Clean building, a few steps walk to the Taxi stand, about 5 minutes walk to the Metro station of St.James, surrounded by many varieties of Cafes, And pretty much a walking distance to the major area’s attractions of London. Like the Buckingham Palace, the St.Abbey’s Anglican Church, The Big Ben, Hop-on, Hop-off for the ferry-boat cruises, and more interesting sightseeing attractions around the area! The Victoria Station is about 10 minutes walk from Crown Plaza so if you’re coming from the Airport of Gatwick and going to London, the best thing you’ll do is to ride a train from Gatwick to Victoria’s Station 20£ each a ticket then exit to Victoria station where most hotel’s are, and the attractions most of all.
NOTE: The only one I don’t like in Crown Plaza Hotel at St.James London was their Internet which is not FREE at all. 24hrs is charge to 9-10£, which is for me it should be free like most of the Hotels I stayed at. Yeah they told us the free Wi-Fi spots is in the Lobby, and using the Wi-Fi inside our room is 9-10£. I did not see the sense in there though, but I end-up paying it rather than for me to go to the Lobby when all I just want to feel is to lay on the bed surfing while waiting to snore.
So guys if ever you would like to visit London please don’t hesitate to ask any information from me as I am willing to give you the answer as much as I can.:)
Have a wonderful Lovely trip y’all,
