London, capital city of the United Kingdom, is one of the oldest and most historic cities in the world. Although the city of London itself (then known as Londinium) was founded in 43 AD, there are ancient Celtic ruins beneath the modern city that speak of a much older history. For centuries, London was the capital of the vast British Empire and the greatest center of science, culture, and power in the world. Today, it retains a compelling mixture of old and new, a historical warmth tempered by a modern pace of life. It is the largest city in the European Union.
London has a massive metropolitan area, and flights to London can go into any one of 4 major airports: Luton, Gatwick, Stansted, and Heathrow. The vast majority of international flights come into Heathrow, but sometimes flights to the others can be cheaper. In all cases, buses and trains link the airport with the city, and many of the airports have direct lines amongst one another. Since London is one of the main gateways between Europe and America, direct flights to London are extremely common, and most go through Heathrow.
Getting around in London can be very confusing the first time due to its massive size. The world-famous Tube, one of the oldest underground metro systems in the world, serves nearly every area of the city, so it’s possible to ride the underground almost anywhere; however, you will have to learn the system first, and with its many lines that can be a difficult task. There are also buses and taxis. Many tourists are surprised to find how easy it is to walk through London – many of the main attractions are clustered very near to one another along the river.
While the United Kingdom is not renowned for its food (Londoners are known for drinking more than eating), London has excellent restaurants serving food from all over the world. For international cuisine and a few local delicacies, head to the Soho district.
