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 Lincoln Plaza, a supremely stylish and luxurious hotel based in Canary Wharf. Known as a major financial and business district, the area boasts boutique shopping and various bars, restaurants and cafes. If you’d rather stay closer to the centre of town, but still want to hang out with the hip crowds, try The Curtain in the achingly trendy Shoreditch area.
Pick up some antique door knobs or marvel at some vintage maps as you sip on a botanical gin and tonic at LASSCO Ropewalk.
