~ Paid Attractions ~
Sometimes free things just don't hit the spot quite right. You need that little bit more spice and flavour to add to your adventure. Some paid things really just aren't worth it in central London as it's just over priced tourist pay however, it is all up to you and what kind of budget you are on. Don't get me wrong I'm all for finding the free stuff to do but I do also love a good festival, having a little groovy boogie can't hurt anyone every now and again.
~ Skuna Boats ~
Boats that you can hire out and float down the thames with a group of your mates. Theres two types of boats one is a BBQ boat and the other is a Jacuzzi boat they can both fit up to 7 people on. Personally I couldn't sit in a hot tub for too long but I still think both are pretty cool. This can be a little more on the pricey side but if your splitting it between all 7 of you then its not too bad (think they do couple deals too).
Average cost - £220 - £250
~ Climbing the 02 ~

I think this is fucking amazing being quite an angry person myself. Now apparently drinking is allowed but I'm not sure how safe that would be with alcohol in me whilst I'm getting anger out of my system with an axe in my hand... all good fun though. Each lane has up to 6 people.
