Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a
thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National
Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the

I want to go, but I'm am claustrophobic. Is each unit totally enclosed in glass? Is there at least one panel that can open or is left partway open? That would really help!
