The ultimate city break

To say that London has it all is an understatement. Whatever you’re hoping to find in a city, the chances are the English capital will have it in abundance. Rich history is brought to life through incredible buildings and museums, world-class galleries display modern and classic art, innovative chefs serve acclaimed global cuisine, there’s cutting-edge nightlife and shopping opportunities galore. Even several London city breaks couldn’t cover it all, but don’t let that put you off. Just dive in and explore.

London’s strength is its diversity. Switch from gazing at Buckingham Palace with the masses to taking a peaceful boat trip in a park. Feast on a curry in Brick Lane, sip a pint in a cosy pub and dance until dawn at a heaving nightclub – all within the space of a few hours. The headline sights – like the Tower of London, Tate Modern, the Houses of Parliament – are must-sees, of course, but those who factor in time for lesser-known spots and smaller venues will reap the benefits of a city that is constantly growing and evolving.

City breaks to London are an exciting prospect for anyone and everyone, whether you’re visiting with children and family, as a couple or travelling solo. And rest assured that whatever time of year you arrive, you’ll never be stuck for things to do.

Your London questions, answered

London’s traffic makes driving slow and parking a nightmare. It’s easier and quicker to use public transport. For short distances, consider renting a bike from an on-street hire scheme.
A ‘fry-up’ for breakfast, afternoon tea and fish and chips for dinner covers a few British classics – but London offers incredible global cuisine, so make the most of that, too.
Several of London’s most famous museums and galleries are free to enter, as are most markets and parks. With a little research you might find free comedy and music.
