Flights to London

Flights to London take you to a city of unforgettable landmarks. Buckingham Palace, Wembley Stadium, Big Ben, Regent’s Park, Camden Town, Notting Hill, the London Underground – the list of things to do and see in London is endless. (This includes giant Ferris wheel the London Eye, the perfect vantage point for taking it all in).

Thankfully, it’s a city built for walking – and those who don’t want to walk can hire a ‘Boris Bike’ from one of the 700 bicycle docking stations around the city. Plus, flights to London would be wasted if you don’t travel on the famous London Underground or hop on one of the iconic double-decker buses while you’re there.

You can find a gem – historical or modern – at every corner. Whether you’re exploring the hipster boutiques of Shoreditch or the high-end restaurants and cafes of Kensington, there’s charm and character in every alleyway.

The architecture is every bit as varied as the neighbourhoods, from the classical beauty of St Paul’s Cathedral to the modern majesty of The Shard. London is also blessed with acres of green space, with Hyde Park and Regent’s Park (the latter of which is home to the world-famous London Zoo) offering a welcome breather from the city.

The mighty River Thames cuts through it all, running alongside the Houses of Parliament and Westminster, and passing the Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. It also winds under Tower Bridge towards Canary Wharf and Greenwich Pier.

Along the Thames’ way and past its riverbanks there are hundreds of theatres, galleries, boutiques, restaurants and markets – which all promise something new to discover.

Flights to London land you in either Heathrow, Gatwick or Stansted airport – all under an hour and a half’s drive to the centre of this vibrant city.

See London from the top of a bus

London wouldn’t be London without its buses. The open-top sightseeing tours, such as the Big Bus and the Original London Tour, are good, but for authenticity catch an old red Routemaster – the iconic red buses still run on Heritage route number 15 between Trafalgar Square and Tower Hill.

Look inside Buckingham Palace

It’s not every day you get to visit a Queen’s house, so a trip to Buckingham Palace is a must. The 300-year-old palace opens its doors every summer, when the public has access to the State Rooms, Queen’s Gallery and gardens. The highlight is The Royal Mews, where the Queen keeps her coaches, horses and limousines.

Where to eat in London

St. John (British)

Housed in an old smokehouse in Smithfield, St. John might just be one of the most casual Michelin-starred restaurants you’ll ever visit. But while the vibe is laid-back, the cooking is meticulous – Chef Fergus Henderson knows how to turn earthy British offal and fish dishes into works of art.

Ottolenghi (Mediterranean / Middle Eastern / International)

You may already own one or two of Yotam Ottolenghi’s fantastic cookbooks, but to experience the real thing head to his flagship deli-bakery-restaurant in fashionable Islington. The menu is all about quality ingredients and big flavours, whether you’re tucking into Mediterranean seafood or a Middle Eastern salad.

287 Upper Street
Islington
N1 2TZ
+44 20 7288 1454

Hedone (Scandinavian / Modern European)

This Michelin-starred restaurant is named after the Greek goddess of pleasure, and it lives up to its name. Started by Swedish food blogger Mikael Jonsson, this stylish spot has taken London by storm, placing emphasis on local ingredients, creative cooking and unfussy dishes.

Town Hall Hotel

This Edwardian building in the heart of the East End is an ideal base to explore the less mainstream side of the city. It used to be the local town hall – which explains the elegant marble lobby and grand staircase – but there are plenty of modern features too, including a swimming pool and the excellent Typing Room restaurant.
