About London

London is a culture capital, steeped in history, and blessed with beautiful architecture and plenty of green spaces. The River Thames runs through its heart, adding to the spacious feel of the city, and of course its appeal to visitors. Access to the capital city is easy however you choose to travel, private jet, helicopter, planes, train, or automobile. We shouldn’t leave out the iconic forms of transport either – the London bus, the Hackney cab, and the Tube!

Things To Do In London

London is awash with enough things to see and do to keep visitors entertained for a lifetime! In fact, when you visit London, your biggest dilemma will be what to do now, and what to leave until your next visit! Below are some highlights that we think make London great. If you are looking for a specific thing to do just jump straight to the category of your choice!

Seriously amazing for shopping

There isn’t a road name in London that doesn’t make you think of going on a shopping spree. Famous high-end department stores, independent boutiques, magnificent markets and pop-up shops all combine to deliver a superior retail experience, whatever your budget and whatever you like to buy!

Second to none for eating and drinking

If all the shopping has left you a little weary, you can find a place perfect for a pick-me-up at every turn. There are wine bars, restaurants, cafes, pubs and pop up eateries galore in the city, serving up every cuisine imaginable! There is of course a cracking night life and entertainment scene in the city where you can watch acts from all over the world perform on stage, including some of London’s very own 5-star acts.

Perfect for park life

For a bit of R&R in London, we can’t recommend the parks enough – they are a day out in London in themselves. There are huge sweeping spaces of green landscape, some with lakes, one with a zoo, and plenty with a waterway running through, or places to swim – you really will wonder where the city has gone when you visit! The larger parks also have an amazing events calendar where you can watch live music, enjoy comedy festivals, and listen to poets and performers.

Renowned for River Thames fun

Whether you want to enjoy the scenic views of the city on a boat trip, or enjoy the scenic views of the river from the shore, The Thames is a London Attraction not to be missed during a visit. There are boat parties galore, floating restaurants, and Thames tours available too – or you can choose to travel by river taxi instead of the tube to take in the fresh air and views!
