Families love bringing their children to London’s South Bank near the Westminster Bridge. This riverside walk has a carnival atmosphere with plenty of entertainment options. Attractions include Shrek’s Adventure, The London Dungeon, an arcade called Namco Funscape, the Sea Life London Aquarium, the London Eye (giant Ferris wheel), Jubilee Gardens (public park) and this magical carousel. Although this ride was manufactured in 1999 by the Mardi Gras Company, it replicates the fun of an English Carousel from the 1951 Festival of Britain at Battersea Park. After the kids have mounted the horses and the music starts, American parents will soon notice that merry-go-rounds in the U.K. follow a clockwise rotation versus the traditional counterclockwise direction in the U.S.
