A modern city with an old time heart, where high end fashion meets quirky culture and sets the stage for international cultures and cuisines, London is a city that excites and inspires travellers of all types. Flight Centre Travel Expert Jessica Mathew, from Flight Centre Northland Shopping Centre in Victoria, says, "Being one of the world's oldest cities, London is the place for adventure." Here Jessica shares her insider tips for travelling in London.
Food: Sketch Restaurant
Dine at Sketch Restaurant in Mayfair. The surrealist decor of this upscale establishment recalls Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory or a David Lynch film.
Play: Millenium Bridge
From the city cross the River Thames on the Millennium Bridge with a beautiful view of London. Then spend the day at the Tate Modern gallery, which is free to visit.
After Dark: The Breakfast Club
A restaurant specialising in – you guessed it – breakfast. Afterwards head on downstairs to the restaurant’s speakeasy, The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town. Remember to ask your waiter for the day’s password.
Day Trip: Bicester Village
About an hour from London, Bicester Village has 130 stores including high-end contemporary retailers such as Alexander McQueen, Jimmy Choo, Dior and Burberry.
Secret Tip: Insider Info
The Portobello Markets are London’s best; however, head there early to beat the weekend crowds.
