Are you ready to explore London?

Discover London this winter, where the lights sparkle across the city’s supreme sights. Wrap up warm and wander along the River Thames, coffee cup in hand. Ride the London Eye, to gaze at the grand Houses of Parliament, stroll down to the Tate Modern, then cosy up in a traditional pub.

Wintertime brings the best of festive cheer to London. Amble along the glowing Oxford Street for a spot of shopping – Selfridges and Liberty are must-visits. Next, swoon through Britain’s iconic department store, Harrods, and meet up for a seasonal Christmas afternoon tea with friends. Still feeling peckish? Borough Market has plenty of tasty bites to try, while the foodie scenes of Camden and Dalston markets are great for the whole family.

Lap up London’s cultural flavours and history with a visit to the British Museum. See the masterpieces of the Victoria and Albert Museum, then catch a play at Shakespeare’s Globe or a hit musical on the West End. Visit Buckingham Palace, hop on the underground to reach Tower Bridge and catch magic tricks in Covent Garden. Soak up the sensations of London’s characteristic cosmopolitan.
