London is a popular destination for business travelers and tourists alike, serving as one of the largest financial centers in the world, as well as offering extensive cultural and entertainment attractions.
Raleigh and the surrounding area receive air service from the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The airport is about 10 miles from the center of the city, with transportation available to the airport from the city's bus service or taxi. Triangle Transit buses make the trip form the downtown area to the airport on Monday through Saturday for $2.00, taking about 30 minutes. If you take the taxi instead, the cost of the approximately 20-minute trip is about $29.80. Driving to the airport is a third option. There's plenty of long-term parking available, with charges beginning at $6.00. The long-term lots are park-and-ride lots, with free shuttle service to the terminals.
Before your flight, you can have a meal at one of the many airport restaurants. A quick meal is available at KFC Express and Five Guys, or you can have a beverage and snack instead from Starbucks or Cinnabon. After eating, you can board one of the flights available to London on American Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways or Delta, among others.
London is located in the south of England on the banks of the River Thames. It's the capital city of England and the United Kingdom, and serves as a center of commerce and culture. London is a major tourist destination, attracting millions of visitors throughout the year.
When flying from Raleigh, you're likely to land at London Heathrow Airport, about 14 miles from the center of the city. There are several travel options available to take you from the airport to your final destination in the city. The London Underground has a train stop at the airport, allowing you to make the trip to central London in a little under an hour at a cost of about $7.50. The faster Heathrow Express is a second rail option, costing $28 to make the trip in only 15 minutes. A third option is to take a taxi from the airport. Taxi fare will cost around $70, and the trip can take between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on traffic.
The best time to visit London is when the weather is the mildest, during the months of May, June and September. The high temperatures in May are usually in the mid-60s degrees Fahrenheit range, warming up in June to the low 70s, and then cooling off again in September to the high 60s. You should bring along a light jacket for the trip, as well as an umbrella, as it tends to rain frequently.
There are many things for visitors to do in London, no matter what time of year you visit. The city is filled with art galleries, such as the Tate Modern and Tate Britain, and museums like the Bruce Castle Museum or the world-famous British Museum. For a couple of unforgettable sights, there's the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, or you can watch a play at Shakespeare's Globe theatre.
