From the days of Shakespeare right through to the Swingin’ Sixties, London has been in vogue for hundreds of years, welcoming travellers in search of culture, history and sophistication. From ultra-modern skyscrapers like The Shard to established landmark buildings like Westminster Abbey, the diversity this city proudly displays still makes for an ideal holiday destination to suit all comers. And thanks to a variety of airlines making the journey from Mauritius Island to London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports easier than ever, now is the perfect time to experience the very best of British.
August and September are typically the months when Mauritius Island to London flights are at their most expensive, though great deals can be had if you’re willing to book early. Flights are also more expensive at weekends, so consider midweek options to take advantage of low-cost opportunities. Prices tend to be lower from October to December, and London is a perfect place to spend Christmas, with a stroll under the Oxford Street Christmas lights an unforgettable highlight.
Air Mauritius offers direct routes to Heathrow from Mauritius Island's Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, with a flight time of approximately 12 hours. A number of airlines also provide one-stop services; Emirates and Turkish Airlines both operate indirect routes to Gatwick, for example, and if you're looking for a cheap flight to London from Mauritius Island, these can be more affordable options – although naturally they also take that bit longer. When you book your Mauritius Island to London flight, it's also worth bearing in mind that there's a time difference of 4 hours between the 2 destinations.
London airports are well used to catering to passengers in their droves, so it's easy to make your way into the city from the terminal. Heathrow is well connected to the centre by a frequent underground service, with waiting times of no more than 10 minutes and a journey time of 1 hour. The Heathrow Express train is even speedier, making the trip in just 15 minutes. At Gatwick, a non-stop express train runs every 15 minutes and takes you to the centre in just half an hour, or you can hop on board an hourly National Express bus.
Perhaps the most famous image of Britain and a much-loved tourist destination, a trip to Buckingham Palace is a chance to walk in the footsteps of royalty. In summer, it's open to the public, and guests can admire the breathtaking gardens and tour the majestic state rooms within the building. For a dash of more cutting-edge culture, check out the Tate Modern gallery, where contemporary paintings and visual pieces from around the world are on permanent display. With its sweeping architecture, the building itself is also a work of art, while free admission means that anyone can enjoy its world-class exhibits.
