All work and no play

September 8, 2006

The ESCRS will be organizing a number of sightseeing tours during the meeting. The London City Tour will take in the major sights of London, including Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Harrods, Trafalgar Square, St Paul's Cathedral and much more. There will also be an opportunity to visit Windsor Castle and Hampton Court Palace, home to the British monarchy past and present.

All work and no play?

If you prefer getting out on your own, OTE would like to recommend a number of sites that are well worth a visit:

The London Eye was constructed to celebrate the millennium and has fast become an essential part of the city's experience as well as being a dramatic feature of London's skyline. At 140 m tall, it is the sixth largest structure in the city and, from this height, and with the benefit of 360° views, there can be no better way to see London.

The £25 million London Aquarium is one of Europe's largest exhibitions of global aquatic life, displayed in over 2 million litres of water. The Aquarium combines education, relaxation and entertainment through a multi-sensory voyage of discovery through the rivers, lakes and oceans of the world. There is nowhere else in the capital where visitors can come face-to-face with sharks, watch piranhas at feeding time and stroke friendly rays.
