The folk at Merlin Entertainments have launched a multi-save ticket allowing visitors to save up to 50% off some of London's top attractions.

Eager to take up the challenge we kicked off our weekend adventure in London, with the iconic London Eye.

Built to celebrate the year 2000, this mammoth observation wheel has become a staple of the city’s skyline.

It’s the highest cantilevered observation wheel in the world, and from the moment you step into one of the spacious, oval pods, you’re in for a treat.

As the wheel gracefully lifts you 135 meters above the ground, you’re greeted with panoramic views of the Thames and the cityscape. On a clear day, like the last bank holiday weekend, you could see Crystal Palace.

The 45-minute rotation is smooth and perfect for all ages. Even those wary of heights might find themselves captivated by the sweeping vistas.

The London Eye is fully wheelchair accessible, ensuring everyone can enjoy the ride. And once you’re back on solid ground, why not explore the nearby Sea Life London Aquarium?

With so much to see and do, this is a must-visit on any London bucket list.

Just a short stroll from the Eye, at the Sea Life London Aquarium you’re transported into an underwater wonderland that’s home to thousands of marine creatures.

As you enter over a glass window peeking into the Pacific waters, you’re led through a mesmerising array of exhibits. From the ominous Shark Walk to the colorful Coral Reef, every turn reveals a new aquatic delight.

Highlights include the Ocean Tunnel, where green sea turtles glide overhead, and the Rainforest section, where piranhas and Cuban crocodiles lurk.

Don’t miss the Ocean Invaders exhibit, dedicated to the fascinating world of jellyfish. Whether you’re with family, friends, or flying solo, this is a fantastic way to explore the wonders of the deep sea in the heart of London.

Rounding off our weekend adventure is the legendary Madame Tussauds. This isn’t just a wax museum; it’s an immersive experience where you can rub shoulders with over 300 lifelike figures from the worlds of entertainment, sports, politics, and history.

From posing with A-listers like Angelina Jolie and Taylor Swift to taking a ride through London’s history in the ‘Spirit of London’ taxi, there’s something for everyone.

The Marvel Super Heroes 4D experience, with its interactive displays and thrilling short film, is a hit with kids and adults alike. And for Star Wars fans, the meticulously recreated sets and characters will transport you straight to a galaxy far, far away.

The famous Chamber of Horrors offers a spine-chilling walk through the history of crime and punishment, complete with special effects that will have you gripping your seat.

With seasonal exhibitions and ever-evolving displays, Madame Tussauds is a dynamic attraction that guarantees a fun and engaging visit for all ages.
