London calling

London conjures up so many iconic images that it’s hard to know where to start. The Changing of the Guard – black cabs – red double-deckers … if it’s your first time you’ll be stopping for selfies at every step! But to really get under its skin, take advantage of the user-friendly public transport network to stray beyond the tried-and-tested tourist trail. Ride the Docklands Light Railway to the Royal Borough of Greenwich and visit the Cutty Sark; wander down the King’s Road to Chelsea’s World’s End and see the birthplace of punk; check out the boho chic of Petticoat Lane market followed by a spicy Brick Lane curry, or party with the hipsters of Hoxton. Sweet dreams are made of this.
