Cheap flights to London
England’s capital is not only the largest city in Western Europe, but is also its most vibrant. The home of the Queen, Big Ben and the famous Hackney Carriage is also home to one of the most cosmopolitan populations in the world, which has left its mark on this ancient yet very cutting edge metropolis.
London is a world city of truly global proportions. Visitors come here to experience the world’s best restaurants, top hotels and its varied nightlife. But they also come for another thing, the culture. If there is a world capital of culture then London must surely be it. Plays and musical productions pack the city’s famous West End, while museums and art galleries, such as the iconic British Museum and the Tate Modern wow visitors with their huge exhibits.
Sure, you can see London by bus, train, bike or even helicopter. But until you've gazed upon it (well, upon Canary Wharf and Greenwich to be specific), in a fetching blue jumpsuit, following an exhilarating, 90-minute hike up the side of The O2 (yes, we do mean the ginormous concert venue), you're missing out. With tickets starting from £26 (€33), and climbs running all day and into the evening (twilight is particularly good), it really is worth the effort (The O2, Peninsula Square, SE10 0DX, theo2.co.uk).
Take the best beer factory tour or vineyard trip you've ever been on, and replace the booze with Bombay Sapphire gin (yes, we thought that might turn a few heads). The company has just opened its Hampshire distillery to the public (a 90-minute drive from London), to allow fans to explore and learn about the origins of their botanicals before, of course, trying some of the finished product. distillery.bombaysapphire.com
