Top 3 London Recommendations


Natural History Museum in London

Museums of South Kensington

Once you’ve settled in after your Edinburgh to Heathrow flights, make a beeline for the museum heartland of South Kensington. The Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum all sit side by side. And the best bit? They all have free entry. Whether it’s just you or the whole family, you’ll see countless sights to inspire you. Once you’ve had your culture fix, how about some retail therapy? It's just a five-minute walk up the road to Harrods, the world’s most famous department store.

Cable car in Greenwich

Emirates Air Line Cable Car

Many visitors flying into London Heathrow choose the London Eye for a bird’s eye view of the capital, but it’s far cheaper and the views are just as spectacular from the Emirates Air Line cable car. Scuttling between Greenwich and the Royal Docks, the cars, carrying up to ten people at a time, pull-up every 30 seconds. You can easily hop onboard with your Oyster card. The trip takes around 10 minutes unless you opt for the extended night flights, which take around 13 minutes. It’s a wonderful way to see the city come alive as evening falls.

London in the dark

The London Dungeon

Step off your flights from Edinburgh to London and immerse yourself in the capital’s perilous past – if you dare! Take in the sights, sounds and smells of historic London, squealing and laughing as you go. Talented actors walk you through 1,000 years of the city’s darkest history where you’ll come face to face with plague victims, colourful villains, Guy Fawkes and Jack the Ripper’s murderous exploits. Calm your nerves afterwards with a drink at one of the many bars on the South Bank.

 

Off the Beaten Track Recommendations


Runner in Hampstead Heath

Hampstead Heath

If you’re craving open skies and fresh air on your Edinburgh to London visit, you only need to head four miles north of the city centre to find them. Hampstead Heath is a wild park of meadows and woodland, beloved by Londoners. Offering some of the best views of the city you can find, it’s the place for a post-lunch meander, a summer picnic or a dip in the swimming ponds.

 

Street art in Shoreditch, East London

Street Art Tours

East London is a hub for some of the world’s best street artists including Banksy and Christiaan Nagel. From colourful little vignettes to huge, imposing showpieces, the best way to get up close and find out more about them is to take a tour with Street Art London. They run regular tours in Shoreditch, Dulwich and Hackney. Booking in advance is essential, so why not sort it while you’re booking your cheap flights from Edinburgh to London?

 

Kew Gardens in London

Go West

London is a city of contrasts and to see this, you only need to head from the east end to the west where grit is replaced by something a little more genteel. Explore Wimbledon, Kew Gardens, Hampton Court Palace, or head to Richmond for a quiet drink in a riverside pub on this leafy stretch of the River Thames. Close to Heathrow Airport, this area is also an ideal spot if you’re stopping over between your Edinburgh to Heathrow flights and connecting to long haul later.

London Food & Drink Recommendations


Falafel in Borough Market, London

Borough Market

When you fly from Edinburgh to London Heathrow, it would be almost unthinkable not to pay a visit to London’s most renowned food and drink market. Sample appetizing morsels on countless stalls, then escape the throng by ducking into one of the market’s many cafés and restaurants. For little plates of Middle Eastern deliciousness under atmospheric brick-lined rail arches, choose Arabica Bar & Kitchen. For Taiwanese buns and street food, check out Bao Borough. Elliot’s does excellent seasonal dishes cooked on a wood-fired grill. And for great coffee, try The Gentlemen Baristas.

The Shard, London

The Shard

For a truly memorable experience following your flights to Heathrow from Edinburgh, indulge in the height of fine dining at The Shard. This glassy edifice has a number of options to choose from. Aqua Shard on the 31st floor offers a contemporary British menu. The three-storey atrium bar is great spot for a pre- or post-dinner drink, and the view is – of course – sensational. One floor up, Oblix offers more casual though still sophisticated dining. Check out Hutong for wonderful northern Chinese flavours and Ting for modern British cuisine with an Asian slant.
