Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
Let the collections at IWM Duxford and Natural History Museum capture your imagination. Step off the beaten path and head to Arundel Castle and Gardens and Ely Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from London: Battle Abbey and Battlefield (in Battle), HMS Warrior 1860 (in Portsmouth) and Bodiam Castle (in Bodiam). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Old Town Hastings, explore the world behind art at National Gallery, take in the spiritual surroundings of Westminster Abbey, and contemplate the long history of Winchester Cathedral.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are London Heathrow Airport, London Gatwick Airport, London Stansted Airport, London City Airport, London Luton Airport and Southend Airport. In May, daily temperatures in London can reach 62°F, while at night they dip to 46°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
