Cheap flights to Stansted (STN)

See all departure points

The modern city with a traditional soul, London is one of the most fascinating - and best-value - destinations. As with the other top-ranking European cities, there is a heady mix of old and new. The ancient Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and other royal residences stand beside modern edifices such as City Hall, the Gherkin and Shard London Bridge. Add in the capital's parks and masterpiece-stuffed museums and galleries (most of which are free to visit) and it's little wonder why millions of travellers book flights to London each year.  

There's never a bad time to visit London. The world city has plenty going on year round - sporting events (Premier League Football games, rugby, Wimbledon to name a few), festivals (like the Notting Hill Festival each August), concerts, conventions and expos.

And if you want to see a bit more of that part of the world while you're there, its joined up, world-class infrastructure means it's easy to take buses, trains and planes and go exploring.
