As a photographer I spent ages in this building taking photographs, there are a few places to get hot drinks and food, plus the tourist information and you can buy tickets for the hop on/ hop off/ bus tour £12 each- last for two days and get discount at other experiences.

i liked the old visitor centre, ( the tube) it was almost iconic, whereas this is just a shop with some info, the old place was interesting and informative and was a visitor attraction in itself!
