Travellers who make the 90-minute journey from Frankfurt to London will be met by one of the most colourfully diverse cities on the planet. In the British capital, iconic buildings like Buckingham Palace share the skyline with major contemporary landmarks like the London Eye, while ultra-modern districts like The City rub shoulders with the likes of trendy Camden and historic Westminster.
