More recent attempts at great architectural feats have brought mixed reviews. The London Eye is well accepted as it provides great views along the River Thames. The Millennium Dome in Greenwich has not been as well received as a structure, but is the largest indoor anything in the U.K. and was to house exhibits, shops, restaurants and live entertainment venues. Hopes are that it will be extremely useful for the 2012 Olympics in London. The Millennium Dome was closed to the public on December 31st 2000, several hours prior to the millennium it was supposed to celebrate. Charges of improper donations to the Labour Party also tainted the construction. It is set to reopen in 2007 as “The O2”. These new landmarks may take a little time for the citizenry to adopt as their own. The guy living down the street from Big Ben probably wasn’t thrilled when that bell rang for the first time either.

These are just a few of the many great landmarks in London, New or old, these and many others draw tourists into London in Droves. Purchasing admittance in advance is generally a good idea, and be prepared to stand in line a while for some landmarks as well.
