Fly to London

Good old London. This historic city is brimming with activities, attractions, curiosities, and excitement. And 8.6 million Londoners are waiting to greet you in their charming English accents. It's no surprise we have a special place for London in our hearts.

London is not only historic, it is also one of the world’s most important cities – politically and economically. Not least, it is home to the venerable British royal family.

The numerous and diverse neighbourhoods that together make up London mean that everyone can feel at home. Arty, cultural Hackney; hipster Shoreditch; romantic Notting Hill; fashionable Kensington; and Westminster, with its iconic landmarks. The city's efficient and user-friendly Tube system will whisk you from one to another in a flash.
 

Activities in London

The “capital” of Europe has something for absolutely everyone. If you’re travelling with children, a visit to Hamleys, the world’s largest and oldest toy shop, is an obvious choice. London Zoo, the London Aquarium and the city's many parks are also perfect family destinations.

London is the city of music. The biggest international names come here to perform, with concerts taking place in venues ranging from arenas to small, intimate clubs. During the summer, music festivals succeed one other in rapid succession. And we haven’t even mentioned the many musicals. Be sure to buy tickets well in advance for the most popular shows – they sell out quickly.

London is a city for self-indulgence. You can eat in some of the world's finest restaurants, influenced by cuisines from all over the globe. And of course you’ll find the very best afternoon tea and scones. Not to mention some excellent beer, in the cosy pub on the corner.
