A colourful mix of different nationalities, a vibrant cultural life, lively nightlife and the fast-paced financial sector attract visitors from all over the world to London. This city in south-east England is without a doubt one of the most popular cities in the world. Thanks to its geographical location, the climate is milder than in the rest of the country: in spring, the temperature rises to 18 °C and during the summer months of June and July, London is pleasant with temperatures of about 24 °C, and fewer than eight days of rain, on average. In the rather cool winter, the city is festively decorated and is a delightful destination.

Arriving in London after your flight, you have countless opportunities to get to know the city. To begin your sightseeing and relax after your arrival, take a walk to one of the royal gardens. Hyde Park is the largest green space in the town, and thanks to its central location, is very popular not only with tourists but also with residents looking for rest and relaxation. From Hyde Park, it is only a few minutes to Buckingham Palace, and the prestigious department store, Harrods, is not far away. Almost as popular as Hyde Park is Regent’s Park – a trip there is worthwhile for the whole family because of London Zoo, which is located in the northern part.
In the capital, visitors will find images of the popular royals on almost every imaginable souvenir, whether plates, stamps or umbrellas. Those who want to get even closer to the Queen and her family can, with some forward planning, even breathe in a little of the regal air: Buckingham Palace is open to the public for two months during the summer. In the Tower of London, the crown jewels wait to be admired. As well as the royal jewellery, this landmark of the city is also an exciting destination for young and old. Everyone is amazed that the Tower temporarily housed elephants, polar bears and other exotic animals. A visit to the Wakefield Tower in the castle ensures goose bumps: here, you can learn more about the prisoners who were held here.
Discover a different side of London with a change of perspective. The London Eye, which is also known as the Millennium Wheel, takes you to dizzying heights. The 135m high Ferris wheel is on the banks of the Thames and offers magnificent views over the city. The riverside buildings, Big Ben and the Palace of Westminster with its Houses of Parliament can be seen particularly well from here. Maybe even Londoners will be inspired with a little wanderlust from such a panorama.
In London, countless attractions bear witness to the city’s turbulent past. Those who want to know more about its history are in good hands at the British Museum. The extensive collections of one of the largest museums in the world take you to ancient Egypt; you can also discover coins, medals and early history. The Rosetta Stone is of particular importance: its trilingual inscription was the key to translating Egyptian hieroglyphics. The museum is not only a popular destination for history buffs – thanks to special family-friendly events, children can also learn more about the past. Why not try a visit by night, available on selected dates?
London’s significant financial sector and the head offices of many important companies ensure high numbers of international visitors travelling on business. London Luton airport (LTN) is well prepared: it is well served by shuttle buses and trains to the capital and the other London airports. Four hours free Wi-Fi is available to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and the last-minute printing service is helpful if you have forgotten your boarding pass or other important documents.
