Leisure & Activities

Eiffel Tower
One of the most famous landmarks in the world, the Eiffel Tower was constructed between 1887 and 1889 as the magnificent entrance to the World Fair in 1889. At a height of 324m, it’s the tallest structure in Paris. There are three levels for visitors and it has restaurants on the first and second level.

The Rock of Gibraltar
Standing 426m high on the tip of the Iberian Peninsular, The Rock of Gibraltar offers magnificent views of the African coastline, the convergence of the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean as well as views of the city and Costa Del Sol.

Norweigan Fjords
Incredibly, there are more than one thousand fjords all along the coast of Norway. If you’re interested in spectacular scenery and stunning photographic opportunities, the Norweigan Fjords are a perfect destination. Probably the best way to visit the area is by one of the many cruise lines that offer cruises from many UK ports.
