Flights to London, England
The city of London is served by an astounding 6 international airports - London City Airport, London Luton Airport, Heathrow Airport, Gatwick Airport, Stansted Airport and London Southend Airport.

Best Time to Visit London
Though an evergreen holiday destination, tourists sometimes find their vacation mood dampened by the sight of an overcast, grey London. Those not fond of rain should therefore plan their holiday for the summer months of June to August - though typically a blisteringly hot season for Europe, London is nice and warm in this period with an average temperature of about 18°C. Sunlight hours are also stretched longer in these months, making it the perfect time to enjoy the city’s summer music festivals as well as outdoor street festivities like the Notting Hill Carnival.
Things to do in London
A top favourite destination for tourists from all around the world, London is chock-full of wonderful things to do, see and eat. Admire the architectural grandeur of Westminster Abbey, London Bridge and the Tower of London, catch a theatre show at the West End (followed by some amazing shopping), then finish the day off with a boat cruise down the River Thames at twilight to admire the city’s urban landscape from the waters.
