London has become a popular destination among tourists around the world. Two major airports provide easy access for many airlines and make affordable London flights available and easy to find: London Heathrow (LHR) is located about 27 kilometres west of central London and London Gatwick (LGW) is about 47 kilometres south of central London.
When you travel to London, you will be able to marvel at the many historical landmarks available for viewing. Visit the British Museum, tour the Tower of London, revel at Windsor Castle, pray at Westminster Abbey or marvel at the always popular Buckingham Palace.
If all this history makes you thirsty, have a pint at one of London's many famous historical pubs. If a drink with your mates doesn't cut it, you can always hop aboard the British Airways London Eye for sky-high views of more than 55 of London's most famous landmarks. Mystery fans can inspect the Sherlock Holmes Museum or book a Jack the Ripper walking tour. Visit Madame Tussauds to ogle wax sculptures of celebrities, political leaders, and historical figures. Hotels are close to all of these major destinations, so make sure you look early to find cheap hotel deals.
You can also travel to London to experience the theatre. Affordable tickets are easy to find, especially in the West End "fringe" theatres.
