Flight and hotel London

Welcome To London!

London is one of the most historic, energetic and multicultural cities in the world. A London flight and hotel booking offers the chance to explore thousands of years of enthralling history as well all the excitement of a throbbing modern metropolis that's positively bristling with culture and nightlife.

From Shakespeare to The Shard, London is brimming with fascinating places to visit and extraordinary things to do. Your next adventure is just around the corner! Let's just put it this way โ€“ a London city break will easily be the most interesting thing you do this year.

Anything I Should Know Before Visiting London?

London is served by five airports โ€“ Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and City Airport โ€“ all of which are within easy reach (less than an hour) of the city by coach, rail or car. A useful tip is to buy an Oystercard (a re-usable travel card) when arranging your package holidays to London. The Oystercard can be used on all buses and underground trains throughout London and is a cheap, convenient way to get around โ€“ perfect for a weekend in London!

It may be worth remembering that although London (and the rest of the UK) is in Europe, the pound is the currency, rather than the Euro. If you do forget to stock up on sterling before your flight, London is overflowing with cash machines (ATMs) and the majority of shops, bars and restaurants accept cards.

When Is The Best Time For Me To Visit London?

It's fair to say that London isn't especially known for its glorious weather, but that means โ€“ unlike some major capitals โ€“ it isn't seasonal, and therefore is bustling with life and activity all year round. That said, a city break in London during summer offers the chance to enjoy the royal parks and a sunny boat ride down the Thames.

London is also a shopping mecca, and a London package holiday over the Christmas period will not only give you the opportunity to enjoy the lavish lights and decorations that line the streets, but also a chance to get some serious festive shopping done.
