The London Eye and Scary Skeletons

Ideally placed on the Southbank this `DeathTrap` haunted house is designed to draw in the crowds. TV screens play screaming people passsing through dark alleyways and turning corners into fear. Men in white butchers coats with blood plastered around their mouths try to lure you in. The entrance is scattered with animal skeletons and screams. The drama on the outside is, however, the best part of the whole thing. The walk through scary corridors with things jumping out at you and people rattling cages lasts about 3 minutes.

That will be £10 each please and a fiver if you want a photo. Give it a miss if you can resist.

The London Eye is amazing and is also on the Southbank the whole ride takes about 25 minutes. The views are stunning and the capsules are spacious so plenty of room to walk around taking photos. The price is £17.50 per person, more if you want to fastrack the queues. Go later in the day when the queues are smaller.

 Consider buying a Merlin Card if you are going to be visiting places like Thorpe Park and Legoland. A Merlin Card includes the London Eye and the London Aquarium, Madame Tussards, London Dungeons and you can go in as many times as you like. With London Dungeons and Madame Tussards you also join much smaller queues if you have a Merlin Card. They are expensive initially £125.00 per person but they last a year so are well worth the money, you also get discounts on food and free parking at the theme parks. This is my own opinion and I am not sponsored by Merlin Cards to comment.
