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.
We have teamed up with BarChick to help you discover and get into the hidden gems of London's West End.

Trainspotting. There are many, many scenes in Danny Boyle's Trainspotting that you'd never want to experience in person (remember the worst toilet in Scotland?). But experience them you shall at The Vaults' immersive theatre adaptation of the film, which is running as a kind of appetiser for the film sequel's release at the end of the month. Although the sheer volumes of bodily fluid you'll witness (and have thrown in your direction) won't leave with much of an appetite. Not for the squeamish, but Irvine Welsh fans. http://www.thevaults.london/trainspotting
