    The London Eye is not as old as other icons. It opened in 2000, but it is one of the major symbols of London. It's also a good attraction for both tourists and Londoners.

    The black cabs are another important figures for London City Branding. They have been used for a long time. The concept has not been changed because it is a good icon to market London. People in other countries see these taxis in movies and TV series, for example, Sherlock Holmes. I know some tourists who use these taxis just to experience it although they don't need them.
