To London by plane – travel tips

A trip to London would not be complete without visiting Big Ben and Westminster beside the River Thames. The clock that was completed in 1859 and recently went under some refurbishment work is a sight (and sound) to behold and one of the most famous landmarks in the U.K.

Another great attraction in London is to go and see the London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel. It is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the U.K and offers unrivalled views of the city. If you aren’t so keen to jump on board the London Eye, you can always enjoy watching it move from the ground below. If you would like to spend an entire day at an attraction in London, then we recommend the Warner Bros Studios, where you can visit Harry Potter World and get lost in the magic of the famous set. A normal visit can take up to 7h or 8h, and you could always round it off with a visit to Kings Cross Station and Platform 9 and ¾.
