Tower Bridge at Sunset, London, England, UK
Posted Apr 08, 2011
There will be many memorable moments on your European cruise, but one of the experiences that you'll likely never forget is visiting London, England, one of the most famous cities on Earth.
Southampton on England's southern coast will be your actual port of call, and the town is a short trip away from the capital. Once you arrive in the city, you'll have a bevy of choices when it comes to what you want to see and do. Since many of the city's more famous attractions, like the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge and Big Ben, are along the Thames River, a luxurious cruise down this well-known waterway is a good choice for travelers looking to get an overview of the city.
Another attraction located right on the Thames is the London Eye. This massive Ferris wheel is among the largest in the world, and the view from the top is the absolute best in the city. Other attractions that you'll want to make time for include Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace.
Of course, London isn't all that England has to offer. If you'd rather skip the city, you can head to the English countryside for a trip to Stonehenge, or tour the medieval Windsor Castle.
