Destination guides

A flight to London in the United Kingdom will allow you to discover a country that has been undergoing an unprecedented cultural renaissance since the turn of the new millennium. Consulting the in-flight map on the plane to Heathrow, it would seem that the UK was small, but rest assured this land of heritage and tradition exudes culture and sophistication. People have been known to travel from all over the world to visit this country; known for its vibrant cities and pulsating nightlife contrasting with the verdant, pleasing countryside.

As the largest city in Europe and with a history stretching back to the Romans, a flight to London is a must for any historian. London’s rich history is evident at every turn; the first bridge across the Thames that was built by the Romans, St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament are a treasure trove of historical delights.

But London is much more than just historical buildings. The centre of the city is a maze of beautiful and tranquil parks which off set the hustle and bustle of the City and West End and what better way to while away a few hours than a boat ride on the Serpentine in Hyde Park. Visit one of the many museums and art galleries renowned the world over before enjoying a stroll around Trafalgar Square.

Many tourists will take a flight to London for some much needed retail therapy in some top name stores such as Selfridges, Liberty's and Dickins & Jones. Why not take in a show? Your travels would be incomplete without experiencing world famous musicals and plays that are performed each night in the heart of Theatre land and if that's not enough excitement, you can drop into Rock Circus and Madame Tussaud's to pose with the waxwork models of the rich and famous.

London may be famous for its designer boutiques and department stores but it is literally sprinkled with markets, from the bizarre and quirky Carnaby Street and Portobello Road to the bargain hunters' paradise of Petticoat Lane and Camden Town.
