London (2018)

As I completed my master’s thesis nearly a month in Advance, I had some time off. I used this mainly to move my stuff back to Germany and for a weekender in London. Together with my mum, I spend the day to explore a bit of the city. We had a fantastic tour through the House of Parliament, enjoyed some meals at various pubs and tried to escape the heat of the city as best as we could. The evenings on the other side had a fixed program as we went to the Palace Theatre for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. We had a blast. This play is simply perfect!

The Slide at ArcelorMittal Orbit (2018)

One of the most unique attractions in London is The Slide at ArcelorMittal Orbit, where you slide down a 178m long tunnel slide from a starting point of 78m. The slide was built by Wiegand after the design of Carsten Höller. Overall the slide gives the viewing tower ArcelorMittal Orbit an extraordinary and out-of-the-world appearance. The 40 seconds long experience is also rather unique, as you swing up quite high through some of the curves. The extraordinary height of the slide on the other hand is hardly visible, as you just slide down an enclosed tube for the most part of the ride. The few translucent parts of the ride are also passed by rather quickly, so that I even recommend to slide down the slide if you’re normally afraid of heights.

Sea Life London (2018)

As I had a Merlin Annual Pass, I wanted to visit at least all of the Merlin Attractions around the County Hall once this year and give Shrek’s Adventure at least a try. This attraction is basically the same as the nearby London Dungeon, just way more family-friendly and based on the beloved Dreamworks characters. The tour is rather short in length, so I doubt that the attraction will be a hit among its guests. The Sea Life Aquarium on the other hand is just great. The large-scale aquarium offers a lot of unique scenes and a great number of animals.
