London offers a huge wealth of different experiences across the city, making it a destination that truly has something for everyone, no matter what they’re looking for. Visitors can really celebrate London and experience this wonderful city to the fullest. At our own family of Merlin Entertainments London attractions we reflect the diversity the city has to offer through creating amazing days out and magical memories in the heart of London. You can get up close to the monarchy on their royal balcony or strum your guitar with Ed Sheeran at Madame Tussauds in Baker Street, and meet even more famous faces on your tour of Far Far Away at Shrek’s Adventure! London on the South Bank. Alternatively get a more moving perspective of the skyline with breath taking 360 degree views from a London Eye capsule before delving deep into the murky past of the capital at the thrilling London Dungeon. Finally, be transported beneath the waves at SEA LIFE London and trek through the rainforest before coming up for air in Antarctica to say hello to some inquisitive penguins. Can’t decide? You don’t need to – we know that guests are always looking for the best offer to fit their time and budget so we’ve tried to make it easy to design bespoke combination ticket packages at creating a portal to an unforgettable visit. With all this in mind, we hope this issue of This Is London will inspire you to celebrate the capital in all its glory this summer!
