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.

What to do in London

And after a stimulating day, unwind at the café overlooking the River Thames.

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.

Eat on the street

Dining out in London isn’t just about the restaurants. The London street food scene has pop-up restaurants, cool food trucks dispensing everything from tacos to tapas, and some great markets. Try Borough Market, where you can tuck into everything from British oysters to Ethiopian stew.

Where to eat in London

Ember Yard (Italian, Spanish)

Just like its sister restaurants Opera Tavern, Dehesa and Salt Yard, this Soho spot specialises in small plates. At Ember Yard, the emphasis is on charcoal-grilled tapas from Tuscany and the Basque country. Pull up a stool at the dark-wood counter and enjoy the spiced and grilled free-range chicken wings with Romesco.

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.
