Britain’s capital is a spellbinding city, packed to the rafters with things to do, see and enjoy. If you stay at one of the convenient hotels at London Gatwick, the regular Gatwick Express rail service can whisk you straight to the heart of London in just 30 minutes.
An embarrassment of riches from ancient to modern, London’s world famous sights are all close at hand when staying at the hotels near Gatwick Airport. Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, The Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, West End theatres and a plethora of world-renowned museums and art galleries are just a sample of what’s waiting.
A visit to London also offers the chance to indulge in world-class retail therapy, from Harrods and the ritzy retailers along the Kings Road, Regent Street and Bond Street, to the eclectic and alternative offerings of the Portobello and Camden Markets.
