There’s no bad time to fly to London as it’s truly a year-round destination with a packed calendar of events and attractions. If you’re looking for warmer weather, the best time to visit is summer, which runs from June to August.

In winter, between December and February, there’s a chance of snow – and the city is magical in the festive season.

Book plane tickets to London for March, April or May and you’ll find the capital quieter than the peak summer months, with temperatures generally staying mild.

Spring also sees the staging of two famous annual events – The Boat Race on the Thames between Oxford and Cambridge and the always popular Chelsea Flower Show.

Reasons to visit London

The South Bank

No visit to London would be complete without a walk along the timeless River Thames – and a trip to the South Bank is a great way to experience it.

Start at Tower Bridge or the Tower of London then stroll west along the river to take in some of the city’s iconic buildings – including the futuristic Shard and historic St Paul’s Cathedral. Pass Shakespeare’s Globe theatre, the Tate Modern gallery and the Millennium Footbridge.

Once you arrive at the South Bank itself, you’ll find captivating street performers, the giant London Eye and views of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.

Covent Garden

Despite the name, this isn’t a park but a former fruit and vegetable market transformed into a retail haven, filled with quirky market stalls and boutiques.

In the surrounding area, you’ll find high-end brands and restaurants spilling out into the square. Covent Garden is part of London’s West End, home to some of the world’s best plays and musicals.

Close by you’ll also find the National Gallery, hosting significant works from the likes of Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Leonardo da Vinci.

Kensington Gardens

Attached to Kensington Palace – the official London residence of William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – Kensington Gardens offer a green oasis in the heart of the city.

The vast grounds include the elaborate Albert Memorial, the beautiful Italian Gardens and the innovative Princess Diana Memorial Playground. A paradise for children, the playground features pockets of discovery, intricately carved trees and outdoor musical instruments.

Nearby you’ll find Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace – home of the Queen and location of the unmissable Changing of the Guard ceremony.

Things to know before you fly to London

meals Local cuisine

Don’t miss the chance to try some traditional British favourites. Fish and chips doused with salt and vinegar are on the menu at most pubs and bistros, alongside other staples such as hearty pie and mash.

Steakhouses serving up prime cuts of beef can be found across the city.

weather Weather

When travelling to London, you should pack for all weathers and be prepared to wear plenty of layers. Even on a summer’s day, it can feel chilly at times – but you might still need sunscreen.

A lightweight raincoat is a good idea year-round. It’s a fantastic city to walk around, so comfortable shoes are a must.

bus Getting around

There are excellent public transport links across London. Hop on a double decker bus or ride the underground and overground trains using a contactless bank card or Oyster card.

Walking is a great way to explore too – especially when the capital is enjoying some sunshine.

accommodation Where to stay

If you want to stay central, try Clerkenwell or Farringdon, close to key sights and good transports links.

For somewhere a little different, stay in Hampstead – explore the famous Heath and enjoy fine views of the city. Stay in Shoreditch for good food and the chance to explore Spitalfields Market.

Flying to London: FAQs

How many days should you spend in London?

With so much to see and do in London, you could spend months here and still not see it all. If you’re pushed for time, four days is enough to see a handful of the most famous attractions such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London.

Stay for a little longer and you’ll be able to enjoy some of the fine museums including the Natural History Museum, the British Museum and the National Gallery, as well as relaxing in the capital’s impressive parks.

How do I get from London Heathrow to central London?

You can pre-book an airport transfer with Etihad online and your driver will be waiting for you in arrivals when you land.

Alternatively, you can catch the Heathrow Express train into Paddington – which takes around half an hour to reach central London. London Heathrow is also on the London Underground network, offering a cheap and convenient way to travel.

Should I hire a car in London?

If you’re staying in the centre of London or the Greater London area, you may prefer to use public transport. It’s a busy city and parking can be hard to find.

However, if you’re planning to visit other places in the UK then driving is a great option – Brighton, Cambridge and Stonehenge are all around two hours away.
