Discover London

All the attractions of London are within easy reach – the galleries, the museums, the shops and the nightlife.

And a trip to the capital needn’t be expensive – in the summer, there’s a free festival almost every weekend including the annual Thames Festival.

Museums and galleries

London is home to some of the world’s best museums and galleries and many are free. Explore exhibitions at National Gallery, the Science Museum, and Tate Modern among others.  


Whether you like big glamorous shops or small, highly individual market stalls, London offers it all. Popular markets include Camden Lock and Spitalfields while Borough Market is a paradise for food lovers. 

A night out

Enjoy a musical in the West End, Shakespeare at The Globe Theatre or your favourite band at Wembley Stadium. Whatever your taste in music or drama, you are sure to find something to enjoy.
