The metropolis of London is not without reason one of the most popular destinations for city breaks: With a direct flight to London Gatwick, you will quickly arrive in the capital and can let yourself be carried away by the pulsating big city hustle and bustle. Whether you’re a culture vulture, art fan, gourmet or shopping lover, London impresses with its enormous diversity, ranging from royal flair to street art and food markets.
Besides the world-famous sights such as Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge or the London Eye, there is much more to discover in London. Read here what makes a city trip to London unforgettable and what you should consider when flying to London and arriving at London Gatwick Airport.
Most of the famous sights are in central London. But the other boroughs also have a lot to offer. London’s neighbourhoods are hard to beat for diversity. In Little Venice, admire the beautifully decorated houseboats in the picturesque canals and discover the cafés hidden away there. For shopping and strolling, a trip to the green Richmond on the Thames or the luxury quarter Connaught Village is worthwhile. In Shoreditch you will find the alternative scene with its many hip coffee shops, vintage stores, street art and vibrant nightlife.
Some of London’s sights are not cheap. That’s why a free visit to one of the many museums is worthwhile. Well-known museums are the British Museum, the Natural History Museum or the Tate Modern. Even if you are not a fan of art, a visit to the Tate Modern is worthwhile, as a viewing platform with a great view awaits you on the tenth floor.
Another worthwhile viewpoint that is not yet so well known to tourists is a 62-metre-high column in the centre of the City of London called The Monument. To enjoy the view, however, you first have to climb the 311 steps of a spiral staircase. Once you have done this, you can enjoy a panoramic view of London at the top.
An ideal weekend activity is strolling and exploring at one of the many London Markets that come to life on Saturdays or Sundays. One of the most famous markets is Camden Market, where you can enjoy delicious street food or go vintage shopping. A foodie’s paradise is Borough Market, one of London’s oldest food markets. In East London, you can discover the hip Brick Lane Market. Here you will also find street art pieces and trendy cafés. Beautiful colourful flowers can be admired at the Flower Market on Columbia Road.
When the weather is nice, Londoners like to spend the afternoon in one of the many parks. Besides the famous Hyde Park, there are many other places to discover: You will find enough space for long walks in Richmond Park. A visit to the Kyoto Garden in Holland Park feels like a trip to Japan. And in Greenwich Park you can enjoy a fantastic view of the London skyline.
