Things to Know About London


Getting to London

London is a major airline hub and as a result, there are plenty of flight options from major North American cities. The majority of these international flights arrive into Heathrow International Airport (LHR), which is located 15 miles west of the city. Gatwick Airport (LGW), 27 miles south of London, also handles a fair amount of international traffic. London City (LCY), Stansted (STN), and Luton (LTN) airports also service London but mainly with domestic and European flights.

To get to the city from Heathrow, we recommend pre-booking a private car and driver for a stress-free ride into central London. For the utmost in comfort, Roadtrips can arrange your transfer in a beautiful new Jaguar or Mercedes Benz. If you’re feeling more adventurous, the tube (London’s underground rail system), via the Piccadilly line, is an inexpensive and quick option. As an alternative, there are taxis of course, but if you find yourself stuck in the notorious London traffic, the meter can rise quickly.
