Our Guide to the UK and Ireland

London

London is the world’s meeting place. The astonishing layers of history and diversity in this global city of trade, culture and the arts would take lifetimes to explore, but give us a few days in London and we’ll guide you to the capital's finest experiences. With our museums and royal palaces, parks and gardens, bustling markets and sophisticated clubs and restaurants, you'll never tire of London.

From Roman times via the Elizabethan Age to its Victorian incarnation as the seat of Empire and on to the present day, London has constantly re-invented itself. The energy of our powerhouse city on the Thames is simply extraordinary. You’ll notice it in the in the explosion of creative talent in fashion, music and the arts; in our crammed restaurants and pubs; even in the way we walk and express our opinions. If you doubt this, simply ask a London cabbie. Take a ride on the Tube and on your journey you’ll hear twenty different languages spoken; browse one of our markets and you’ll discover foods from every corner of the planet.

Yes, of course, a ride on the London Eye, a peek inside Buckingham Palace or temporary imprisonment in the Tower of London is great fun; and it’s hard to imagine an afternoon better spent than exploring our museums and galleries, or a ‘me’ morning of shopping and spa treatments in Knightsbridge. But sometimes it’s the small moments that count: a lazy summer picnic in St. James’ Park; the glimpse of a Hawksmoor church between the steel and glass canyon walls of the City; a stroll among the botanical riches of Kew Gardens; the night skyline from Waterloo Bridge.

And just when you think you might flag, a traditional English afternoon tea will always come to the rescue. Rejuvenated, you can head out and enjoy world-class entertainment: a daring stage production? An evening of comedy? Or maybe an evening getting to know the locals at a sixteenth-century riverside pub? If only walls could talk…and even if you spend a day outside the capital, exploring colleges, castles and megalithic monuments, the magic will still be waiting when you return.
