  Old County Hall
by cheezecake_deli

London's old County Hall is a six-storey massive building in Edwardian Baroque style located on the south bank of the Thames across from the Houses of Parliament. It was built in 1911-1922 and served as the headquarters of the Greater London Council until it was abolished by Margaret Thatcher in 1986. In the last few years, the handsome building has been redeveloped and now houses two hotels (the Marriott County Hall and Premier Travel Inn) as well as a number of (second-rate) visitor attractions (the London Aquarium, Dali Universe, Movieum and Fright Club). The ticket office of the London Eye is also located here. There are several restaurants and cafes if you need a break from all that sightseeing.

Address: Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7PB
Directions: Nearest tube stations: Waterloo (Bakerloo, Jubilee, Northern and Waterloo and City lines) or Westminster (Circle, District and Jubilee lines).
