London… where do you start? From the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly Circus and eclectic nightlife of Soho to the tranquillity of Richmond Park and delightful treats of Brixton street food market, there is fun to be had around every corner.

England’s capital is a place where anyone can truly indulge their interests. With many major museums free of charge, a plethora of city parks and pop-up events happening every day of the week, you really don’t have to spend a small fortune to enjoy what London has to offer.

The iconic red buses of London have not always been that colour. Until 1907, buses were all different colours to reflect which route they served.

London Underground may not be a truly reflective name for the tube, where over 50% actually runs above ground.

Your trainers will definitely come in handy in London. Although the city has an impressive travel system, the average traffic speed is the same as when horse drawn carriages ruled the streets. This works to your advantage anyway; 40% of Greater London is green space so go explore those parks and gardens!

For those hungry days, you’ll be spoilt for choice. There are very few cuisines that aren’t catered for in the capital and street food pop-up events are a stalwart of city. You’ll always find world-class restaurants and chefs showcasing their craft. Trust us, you won’t go hungry!
