Destination Guide
London, the capital of England, is renowned as the city that never sleeps making it the perfect place to visit for those who like to get out and about. As well as a history spanning two millennia, it has remained fresh and energetic and boasts a rich collection of art, architecture and heritage alongside modern skyscrapers, lush parks and quiet Victorian streets. It’s also incredibly diverse with almost 300 languages spoken and as many different cultures, helping it become at the forefront for arts, entertainment, fashion, education and finance. The city also boasts some of the most iconic landmarks in Europe from Buckingham Palace and Madame Tussauds to Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

Getting there
With five international airports along with the Eurostar and Channel Tunnel, London is easily accessible. The main international and domestic airport is Heathrow lying to the west of the city and is well serviced by the underground (Piccadilly line), Heathrow Express and regular buses and taxis. Stansted, Gatwick, Luton and City airports are also no more than an hour outside of the city with many low-cost airlines offering cheap, regular flights in and out of the UK. For those travelling from Europe than the Eurostar and Channel Tunnel make for easy crossings of the English Channel with journeys between Paris and London by train taking as little as two and a half hours.

Getting Around
London has one of the best public transport systems in Europe with quick, easy access across the city via a number of different means so there’s no need to rent a car. The Underground, commonly known as the tube, is by far the best way to get around and is divided into six zones, although zones one and two cover most of the city centre. Fares are reasonably priced but can be made even cheaper by purchasing an Oyster pre-paid travel card available at the majority of stations and local stores. The city is also well served by public buses and river taxis or you can rent a bicycle or simply explore the city on foot!

Where to Stay
London welcomes every type of tourist, whether you want to stay in a 5 Star hotel, a cosy little Bed & Breakfast or a cheap backpackers’ hostel, there’s something for everyone. Try and head for one of the numerous eco-friendly hotels in the city such as the Old Aldwych in Covent Garden. If you want to experience a true ‘sustainable trip’, you should definitely try a green-certified Bed & Breakfast such as the Roost in Queen’s Park.
For a good quality mid-range hotel then established brands such as Travelodge, Holiday Inn and Premier Inn have sites all over the city, or for those on a tighter budget there’s an array of backpacker accommodation around the King’s Cross area. Meanwhile, if you intend to splash out then be sure to head for the exclusive Park Lane or Mayfair areas.
