Discover London Heathrow

Home to everything iconically British, London is great for sightseeing, shopping, culture and a whole lot else besides. From Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar Square via Big Ben, there are plenty of brilliant landmarks that are definite must-sees when in the UK capital. The London Eye can help you see the entire city in just 30 minutes, if you're short on time.

London is one of the largest, busiest and most diverse cities on the planet. Steeped in history and culture, it is home to some of the most famous attractions in the world as well as the most important business districts. With world renowned restaurants, theatre and shopping there is enough to keep even the fussiest traveller busy.

Don't worry about the weather

Not even the typical British weather can ruin a stay in London. Head to the incredible Tate Modern to see one of the most eclectic modern art collections in the world, though remember that the Tate Britain is also just along the Thames if classical art is more your style. Along with the Natural History and Science museums in Kensington, London is also home to the British Museum. If you fancy an experience all the more spooky head to the London Dungeon, or walk along to Madame Tussauds for a pop-culture experience like no other! 

There's no denying the city is bursting at the seams with culture, too. London's West End features all the leading musicals and plays, and there is always a live music gig to be found somewhere in the city.

To a far away town

If you'd like to discover a less commercial London, be sure to venture to Shoreditch and Camden. These are the likely stomping grounds of London's young creatives, and a great place to discover one-of-a-kind pop-up shops, cafes and bars. Regardless of your tastes, the diversity of London is sure to offer something you'll love – and Heathrow is the best place to start if you want to explore the British capital.
