Out and about

The big city

As you will probably know, London is one of the most famous cities in the world. Recognisable through so many of its landmarks, this classy, intoxicating destination is the second-most visited on the planet.

Centuries-old tradition and modern innovation merge here, producing a timeless place which is constantly evolving. London’s selection of culture and the arts, green spaces and skyscrapers will leave you ready to come back for more every time you visit.

Whatever the weather

London is a really pleasant city to visit during summertime – the weather is usually good but not unbearably hot, so it’s a great time to explore. However, the UK capital is also a beautifully picturesque winter destination. Whether there’s snow or just a frosty cloak over the city, the iconic buildings and parks are wonderful to see during the coldest time of year.

Exploring London

A village feel

Most of the time, London doesn’t feel like the largest city in the country. There are so many neighbourhoods with a small-town ambience, you can easily forget that you’re around the corner from tourist giants such as Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.

From Little Venice to Stoke Newington to Dulwich, it’s really worth taking the time to wander the back streets. Even passages right beside the main tourist drags are often unpredictably quiet and pretty – you’ll be amazed at how quickly the atmosphere changes if you take the scenic route right behind Oxford Street.

Tips for hiring a car at Heathrow

  • Most cars in the UK are manual transmission, so if you want an automatic vehicle ensure you check this box under ‘car specifications’ when you search.
  • Make sure you allocate yourself enough time to return the car. When choosing drop off times, take city traffic into consideration.
  • If you are hiring a car from one of the London airports, think about how much luggage space you will require in your vehicle.
  • Book your car ahead of time to ensure you get the deal you want. It’s easy to cancel or amend the booking if you change your plans.
  • Plan ahead – knowing where you’re going beforehand can mean a less stressful drive in a busy city.

Tourist treats

One of the most powerful buildings in the capital is the Tower of London. This impressive castle holds the spectacular crown jewels, and its tours are legendary. Let the veteran Beefeaters enlighten you with stories of the Tower’s enthralling and dramatic history. Then, meet the entertaining resident ravens and uncover the superstitions that have become associated with them over time.

For a frame-worthy selfie, remember to take to Westminster and meet Big Ben. Time it right, and hear it chime on the hour. Try visiting this area at sunset, and stroll along Westminster Bridge to approach the world renowned landmark. Admire the magnificent clock from a distance, soaring gracefully above the chaos of the city.
