Escape with us...to London

We love the Big Smoke. Whether you want to soak up culture in world-class galleries and museums, visit famous landmarks or explore parks and palaces, London is the place to be – whatever the weather.

Need some inspiration? No problem. London’s shopping is legendary – try department stores like Harrods and Harvey Nichols for some up-market treats. Or stroll around bohemian markets like Camden Stables and Brick Lane for those one-off vintage pieces.

Hungry? London’s menu is legendary, with celebrity chefs flocking to the capital with eateries from the likes of Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and Heston Blumenthal. There’s also plenty of street food stalls and markets, plus all the usual family-friendly chains.

If you’re after a little entertainment and nightlife, you’re in the right place. Take a stroll around the West End on a Saturday night and you’ll find enough theatres and nightclubs to last a lifetime.
