We know you’ve been waiting for that invitation to tea with the Queen, but just in case it got lost in the mail, you should visit London anyway. This vibrant, global city is the land of Shakespeare, gorgeous cathedrals and palace guards in funny hats. Best of all, you don’t even need a personal invite from the Queen to get cheap flights to London from lastiminute.com.au!
Most London flights land at Heathrow Airport (LHR). Plenty of transport options will get you to your London accommodation, including buses, rail services or seriously cute minicabs.
When you are ready to hit the town, hop onto “The Tube” to get to your destination. Afraid of vampires? Stay in the sunshine by taking one of the iconic red double-decker buses.
Since you don’t have to spend your day sipping tea with the Queen (yawn), you’ll have plenty of time to hit up some of the biggest tourist attractions of London. Speaking of Her Majesty, there’s never a bad time to take in Buckingham Palace…oh, who are we kidding? We know you just want to make faces at the stoic guards.
In the afternoon, put on your comfy shoes and start checking things off your bucket list, including Trafalgar Square, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey and Downing Street. Sure, the politicians at Westminster might have more power than the Queen, but they don’t look nearly asgood in fancy hats.
No matter what you’ve heard, the food in England won’t cause your taste buds to go on strike. Grab yourself some fish ‘n’ chips to live the life of a Londoner and then wet your whistle with a pint at a friendly pub.
You don’t have to steal the crown jewels to afford your holiday. lastminute.co.nz offers incredible deals on London holiday packages. You’ll be flying so high when you save on flights to London, that maybe, just maybe, the Queen will accept your Facebook friend request (but probably not.)
