Discover more about London鈥檚 landmark buildings Published: 29.04.2009 | Author: pmcindoe | Category: Destinations
There鈥檚 no doubting that London is home to a great number of fantastic landmark buildings that are famous throughout the world. Each of these fantastic feats of engineering and construction has a unique story to tell.

The Millennium Dome started out life as the brainchild of John Major鈥檚 government and was taken on and grandly up-scaled when Tony Blair came to power in 1997. The idea behind it was that it would host a Festival of Britain which would bring the country together to help celebrate the new millennium at the end of 1999. A little known fact about the Dome is that it was originally earmarked to become a football stadium after the millennium exhibition had finished Authentic Jonathan Ericsson Jersey , with Charlton Athletic and Fisher Athletic both rumoured to be the new tenants. This never materialised and the impressive structure is now known as the O2 Arena, and plays host to many music and sporting events.

The London Eye is the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe and stands at 135 metres tall, giving unrivalled views across the entire city. Giant wheels like this are not new to London; back in 1907, the Great Wheel of London in Earls Court was demolished. The London Eye has 32 capsules in total which offer truly unique panoramic views of London and it has proven to be a hugely popular tourist attraction since opening to the public in March 2000, drawing over 3 million visitors each year.

The Tower of London sits on the north bank of the River Thames and has a rich and illustrious history. Over the centuries it鈥檚 been used for executions Authentic Darren Helm Jersey , as a public records office, the Royal Mint and is now home to the coveted Crown Jewels. No mention of the Tower of London would be complete without the Ravens. These majestic birds are thought to have been in residence at the Tower for centuries and are themselves a major attraction along with the famous Beefeaters who solemnly guard the Tower.

Big Ben is undoubtedly the most famous chiming clock in the UK, but the name actually refers to the nickname of the main bell within the clock tower. A survey published in April 2008 by the BBC saw Big Ben voted as the UK鈥檚 most famous landmark and its position, almost 100 metres high above the Palace of Westminster makes it impossible to miss.

These are just some of the remarkable buildings and structures that punctuate London鈥檚 famous streets and it鈥檚 easy to see why this capital city is so popular with overseas tourists and UK residents on short breaks. In addition to these landmarks there are so many restaurants, theatres Authentic Martin Frk Jersey , shops and hotels in London that the city can truly be considered as the complete great destination package.

Visiting Anguilla

If you know you?re interested in traveling to the Caribbean Islands, you have a variety of choices for your final destination. You can try a fun cruise throughout the islands in order to visit all of the best hot spots, or you can fly directly to one of the many wonderful islands found in this region of the world. One of the islands from which you can choose is Anquilla.

Anguilla is not one of the most popular islands when talking about Caribbean travel sites, but for that very reason Authentic Henrik Zetterberg Jersey , it is great if you are looking for a more private Caribbean vacation, without lots of other tourists. Anguilla is actually a British overseas territory and is the most northern of the Leeward Islands. Anguilla is comprised of one larger island, including the capital city of The Valley, and also includes a number of tiny islands and cays, most of which are privately owned or uninhabited. Some of the other smaller islands that are part of the Anguilla chain include Dog Island Authentic Anthony Mantha Jersey , the Prickly Pear Cays, Scrub Island, Seal Island, and Sombrero, or Hat Island.

The climate on Anguilla is generally what you would expect to find in this tropical region of the world. The island does get northeastern trade winds Authentic Jimmy Howard Jersey , so it is fairly dry compared to other tropical islands, with the most rain coming in September and October. Anguilla is also along the path of some hurricanes in the summer and fall.

When traveling to Anguilla, make sure you spend some time in the beautiful Caribbean water. Anguilla is known for its coral reef, which is home to a variety of sea animals and plants. The land itself is mostly sandy and not particularly good for farming industries. However, the waters along the coast are great for fishing Authentic Tomas Tatar Jersey , so if you enjoy that sport, you may be interested in applying for a fishing license and talking to some fishing outfitters in Anguilla when planning your Caribbean travel.

As with most Caribbean islands, if you want to travel to Anguilla, you need the proper paperwork. Before you leave, apply for a passport Authentic Gustav Nyquist Jersey , and it is important to be able to show either a return plane ticket or a ticket to otherwise leave the island at some point. Make your hotel reservations at least a few months in advance in order to find the best deals for your stay in the Caribbean.
