Evening - Make your escape
British Airways operates daily, worldwide flights to three of London’s major airports – Heathrow, Gatwick and London City – so you’re bound to a find a flight time that suits you.
If you’re flying into London City Airport, you’ll get spectacular aerial views of the capital, especially the burgeoning development East along the Thames corridor. Check in at nearby Aloft London, a stylish and reasonably priced sub-brand of the W Hotel group, with loft-style rooms beside the ExCel Centre overlooking shimmering Royal Victoria Dock. If you’d rather stay closer to the centre of town, but still want to hang out with the hip crowds, try the Zetter Hotel in achingly cool Clerkenwell.
Pick up some antique door knobs or marvel at some vintage maps as you sip on a botanical gin and tonic at LASSCO Ropewalk.
