Having been to London several times, I can assure you that it is a city that never fails to astonish. As soon as you step foot at Heathrow or Gatwick Airport, you’ll be struck by the lively energy that characterises this famous city. It’s easy to get around the city; both airports have good public transport connections, such as the Heathrow Express and Gatwick Express trains, which take less than 30 minutes to get you into downtown London.

 

 

Arrival And Getting Around

When you get there, you’ll discover that London is a city that skillfully combines modern wonders with historical majesty. It is simple to visit any section of the city thanks to the effective public transit system, especially the Tube. For the easiest and most economical travel, get an Oyster card or utilise contactless payment.
