Towering above the surrounding South Bank buildings, the world’s largest Ferris wheel attracts 3.5 million yearly visitors with panoramic, awe inspiring views of the city.

One of London’s most infamous structures, the tower was founded as part of the Norman Conquest of England during the 9th century and has since served as a royal residence, a prison, an armoury, a treasury and more. A sordid history of tortured prisoners and beheaded queens lives on alongside the wildly impressive collection of crown jewels.
The gas lit streets of London’s Whitechapel neighborhood set the scene for the world’s most infamous and enigmatic serial killer. Stalking prostitutes as they wandered through the poverty-stricken, largely immigrant area, the murderer brutally sliced his victims throats and mutilated their abdomens. At the locations of the crime, you’ll discover the details surrounding the events.
Explore an academic reconstruction of Shakespeare’s favorite open-air theatre, the original of which burnt down during a 1613 production of Henry V. Discover exhibitions on the wordsmith and his life in London.
Built after the 11th century invasion of William the Conqueror, this royal residence is the world’s largest and oldest inhabited castle. Eclectic architecture ranges from remnants of a medieval fortification to lavish, neoclassical Georgian apartments.
With over 40 venues lining the streets of “Theatreland,” the West End joins Broadway in producing the world’s highest level of commercial theatre. While most of the theatres are from the decadent Victorian and Edwardian eras, the district has hosted productions since the 15th century.

While wandering down ancient streets from the Île de la Cité to the Latin Quarter, you’ll pass by the city’s most beautiful sights, including the Cathedral of Notre-Dame and the 15th century Pont Neuf. Learn about Celtic tribesmen, medieval kings and enlightened writers.
Built on the site of an even older Île de la Cité cathedral, the Notre Dame’s flying buttresses, chimera gargoyles and millennia-spanning history have made it one of the most famous cathedrals in the world. Serving as the archdiocese of Paris, its reliquary holds some of Catholicism’s most precious relics, including the Crown of Thorns and a piece from the True Cross.
Take in that je ne sais quoi of the City of Love while admiring the luxury shops and cafés of the tree-lined Champs-Elysees. A tour guide informs students of the rich history behind icons such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and the Opera House.
Built in 1682 when Louis XIV moved from Paris, this baroque pleasure ground was enjoyed by decadent royal families until 1789. Famously inhabited by the opulent, soon-to-be-beheaded Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette, it was violently attacked by hungry and dissatisfied peasant women at the start of the French Revolution.
Peacefully flowing through the heart of this historic city, the River Seine takes you past hotspots such as the Eiffel Tower, the Grand Palais, the Louvre and the Cathedral of Notre Dame.
Here at the most visited museum in the world, you’ll see famous masterpieces such as Venus de Milo, Liberty Leading the People and, of course, The Mona Lisa. Housed in a historical palace and a Glass Pyramid, the 35,000 piece collection ranges from prehistoric treasures to 21st century works.
Now a Parisian icon, Gustave Eiffel’s art nouveau tower was once a temporary exhibit for the 1889 World Fair. Although early critics called it “useless and monstrous,” its world-wide acclaimed assured permanence. While ascending the 320 meters of latticed iron, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of Paris’s ritzy 16th arrondissement.
