It's got everything on offer
One of the few things that we take into account when looking at London is the obvious fact that it’s less than an hour away by air, so by the time you’ve sat through an episode of the X-Factor you could actually be in London!
And does it have a lot to offer! Theatres, shows, shopping, culture, restaurants, gigs, art, museums and history (to name but a few) are all in abundance in London.
Spend an afternoon enjoying lunch in Covent Garden where street entertainers add their own brand of fun and laughter to the day.
Chill out in one of the many London parks – grab a bottle of wine and a sandwich and you could spend the entire day lazing in one of the cities beautiful parks!
Shop till you drop on Oxford Street, Regent Street, Tottenham Court Road or Bond Street.
While away the day steeped in history and culture at the Tower of London, the Royal Albert Museum, London Bridge, the London Eye, the Tate Gallery…..the list is endless in London.
London – it’s only round the corner but it’s got everything on offer!
With celebrity chefs now so well known, why not go and taste their wares for real?

If you don’t fancy going upmarket there’s always the traditional steak and kidney pie or fish and chips in the local pub / restaurant. One thing’s for sure, you won’t go hungry!

Where do you start, or more to the point, once you have started, where do you stop?
Shopping in London is out of this world! There’s such choice, such a variety and such an array of new, unique and varied stuff on offer as well as everything that you’re already used to!
