Sitting at the gateway to Europe, London's the perfect place for a weekend away or as stop on your European Grand Tour.
Boasting some of the world's most iconic museums and art galleries, you'll be spoilt for choice in London. Will you walk among the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum or get experimental at the Science Museum, take in a Titian at the National Gallery or marvel at the modernists at the Tate Modern?
Stepping back outside, the sightseeing never stops, with landmarks around every corner. Hear the clock strike at Big Ben, see the soldiers at Buckingham Palace, watch your neck at the Tower of London or head to the top of St Paul's for jaw-dropping views.
And when you're ready for a break, hit the West End to take in an award-winning musical or indulge in world-class gastronomy.
With Eurostar journeys between London and the continent taking around just 2 hours, short holidays and weekend breaks in the capital of cool have never been easier.
