Short Breaks to London

Short Breaks to London

With landmarks as iconic as Tower Bridge, the London Eye and Big Ben, it’s no wonder London is one of the most visited cities in the world. Starting life as a Roman settlement over 2,000 years ago, it has emerged as a buzzing capital bursting with history, culture and entertainment. Said to be home to at least one person from every country across the globe, the city owes its vibrancy to the melting-pot of cultures living side-by-side; it’s why you can start your day on a full English breakfast, snack on Mexican street food for lunch and dine on an authentic curry in Brick Lane for dinner. 

And as Samuel Johnson once famously said, ‘when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life’, visitors to this cosmopolitan city will never want for things to do, to see or to explore. Pound the length of Oxford Street, picnic in the sprawling Regent’s Park or take things slowly with a boat ride down the Thames. Catch a live street performance in Covent Garden, view the final resting place of Charles Darwin in Westminster Abbey or take a photo with the Queen at Madame Tussauds. London is waiting!

More Travel Information

Forget the Hop On, Hop Off buses and hit the pavement with pedal or foot power. Hire one of London’s cycle-scheme bikes (‘Boris Bikes’ to the locals) and ride through the parks, or see a different side of the city with a guided walk, from street art tours of Shoreditch to spotting scenes from James Bond’s Skyfall on a film-set walk. Experience the city’s West End with a musical or play from long-running favourites to ‘limited time only’ productions, spend an evening at the ballet at the Royal Opera House or catch headline musical or comedy acts at the O2 Arena.

London Food & Drink

No matter what your taste-buds fancy and no matter the size of your wallet, you’ll find something to satisfy your culinary cravings in London. Live the high-life dining at Michelin-starred and celebrity restaurants, nibble on scones and sweet treats with an Afternoon Tea at the Ritz or eat your way through a wide range of street food at the famous Borough Market. For tipples, you can sample a pint in a traditional pub (try Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, former haunt of Charles Dickens), sip cocktails while looking out over the city from a rooftop bar and get your regular caffeine fix at independent cafes and coffee shops.

A visit to London wouldn’t be complete without taking in a couple (or more!) of the city’s most iconic attractions: marvel at Buckingham Palace, walk round the Tower of London, get a birds-eye-view from the London Eye or relive the magic of Harry Potter at Warner Brothers Studio Tour. Spend a day wandering the markets, trawling through antiques at Portobello Road or admiring the blooms at Columbia Road Flower Market. And when that’s done, head to one of the capital’s free museums: highlights include the dinosaur skeletons at the Natural History Museum and the expansive collection at the National Gallery.
