London is one of the most-visited cities in the world.
Brand new skyscrapers sit alongside centuries-old palaces. Afternoon tea at the Ritz faces off against pop-up food carts. And the entertainment options range from a night at the Royal Opera House to a pint in a lively pub garden by the Thames.
Thanks to the comprehensive train system, London is also a great launch pad for day trips. Beachside Brighton, elegant Oxford and the cobbled streets of Canterbury are all within an hour’s train journey away.
Pretty long. Flights start at over 23 hours and can last over 60 hours. Expect at least one stopover each way.
You’ve got a great choice – from national airlines like Qantas Airways, Virgin Australia and British Airways, to worldwide companies such as Singapore Airlines, Etihad Airways, China Eastern Airlines, Emirates and Air France.
