London is not just river Thames, royal palaces, castles, and shopping. This city has much more to offer. There are so many spots in London, which may skip your eye. Some of them are:

Hunterian Museum: Inside the Royal College of Surgeons, lies the place where you can go through a collection, which is gruesomely fascinating. Stored in it are pickled organs, Churchill’s dentures, and many such eerie anatomical samples.

Dennis Severs’ House: Dennis Server, an artist from 18th century, created this place. This house is the abode of the fictitious family of Huguenot silk-weavers. Unmade beds, half-eaten meals on the dinner table all evoke an unusual feeling in you.

Rise Above the World With the Shard

Before flying back, imprint the breathless view of the city atop 308 metres in your mind with http://the-shard.com/. It is the tallest building in the Western Europe at present. The view of the London city is so breath taking from this spot that it becomes difficult to grasp the whole view in a single go. On a clear day, you can enjoy a 360-degree view of the capital’s skyline, and that too up to a distance of 40 miles. The platforms of this extraordinary structure allow you to see whole of the London all at once. Quite sense fainting, isn’t it?
