The Shard
To be exact, it’s called The View from The Shard. It is recorded to be London’s highest view places. If you can’t conquer the entire London, then at least you get to see the entire London in 360-degree angle. Why is it called The Shard? Well, if you look at the building, it resembles the shape of shard glasses.

Up at the O2
Next up! This is much thrilling if you ask me, but THRILLING equals FUN! Like Shia always say, “JUST DO IT! Anyways, Up at the O2 is a climbing activity made in the city. You will be enjoying a 90-minute climb up over the roof of London’s most popular entertainment venue where you get to see the view of the Historic Greenwich, The Olympic Park and the Canary Wharf. Apart from just enjoying the views, you can also dine in style. The dining experience is a different package of course, but it comes with top level dining experience perks.

The ticket prices range from £30.00 to £36.00 for the Original Climb package. For Sunset Climb, the ticket prices range from £36.00.

ArcelorMittal Orbit and Slide
Another thrill-indulged activity for all you crazies out there. Remember back when we were kids and playing slides? Well, this slide is the revamped version. Why? You’ll be sliding down a 178 metres long slide that have 12 twists and turns through UK’s tallest tower (if you can put it that way). What better way to go down than sliding all the way, right? Oh, did I mention you’ll be going at 15 mph speed?

When is it opens and closes?
The average hours throughout weekdays (Monday - Friday) from 11 AM to 4 PM, while on the weekends from 10 AM to 6 PM.
National Gallery & National Portrait Gallery
Okay, we can let out a breath of relief because the last two I’m about to share is something that will not let your heart running for its life. Calling art-lovers, you are recommended to visit the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery that sits very close to each other. Talk about killing two birds with one stone, am I right? Both places are all about the arts. If you’re into the European arts created by legendary visionaries, you would not want to miss it.

Where is it?
The National Gallery is in Trafalgar Square, London WC2N 5DN, UK, while The National Portrait Gallery is literally around the corner in Leicester Square.
How much is it?
The pricing is our favourite word when it comes to money: FREE.

When is it opens and closes?
The operating hours starts from 10 AM to 6 PM except on Friday which closes a little later at 9 PM. The opening hours is the same for the National Portrait Gallery as well.
Royal Opera House
The Phantom of the Opera is here inside your mind~ Aha, not literally but opera-lovers would have a wild kick out of this. I always find performing arts interesting and imagining to be able to sit in the opera house where each scene come to life in front of you? Now, I’m just making myself jealous. Anyways, if you like plays and theatres, this is definitely a top list in your bucket list. London is known to produce major plays by top playwrights in the industry; hence, it’s bound to give you a performing experience you can rarely find anywhere else, in my opinion.
Where is it?
Bow Street, Lotndon, WC2E 9DD.
How much is it?
The pricing differs from each production; hence, it’s pretty hard to set it. Usually, the prices will be updated in each productions pages. My advice is it’s better for you to check the production pages you wish to go to, and you will find the prices there. What I do know that the ticket price can be as cheap as £3.

When is it opens and closes?
The operating hours starts every day from 10 AM.
