London city breaks

For a whirlwind weekend of art, culture, food and shopping, London’s hard to beat. The city’s museums and galleries are among the best in the world, and, with cathedrals, palaces and ancient monuments at every turn, a stroll around London is a history lesson in itself. But in amongst every piece of the past are signs of a cutting-edge, ever-changing city.

Our favourite old-meets-new experiences? Circling the Whispering Gallery of St Paul’s then adopting hushed tones at the Tate Modern, enjoying a birds eye view of Big Ben from the London Eye, and pausing in Greenwich Park to admire the skyscrapers of the City.

If it’s shopping you’re after, hit Oxford Street, explore the markets or steel your nerves (and your wallet) for a stroll around Harrods. For entertainment head to the West End, home to top-notch theatre, comedy, dance and musicals.

And when it’s time for a breather and a bite to eat, you’ll find food from every corner of the globe and for every budget. You can splash out in one of the 70 Michelin star restaurants, blag your way into the hottest new places to eat, make like a local with a plate of fish and chips or pie and mash, or pig out on street food.
