One of the most exciting cities in the world, London is a vibrant mix of cultures, history and heritage.

With so many things to do in London you could easily become distracted by the sheer size of the sprawling metropolis. It’s a city that’s faced fire and floods, fought off invaders from the sea and sky, and has a skyline that combines medieval with modern.

London days out are full of fun and exploration. Visit any one of the free museums to discover the city’s past, or for more a ghoulish insight head to the London Dungeons for a more immersive experience.

Home to a melting pot of cultures and cuisines there are cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs on every corner, each offering something unique and delicious.

Getting to London couldn’t be easier and travelling around London is easier still - take the Tube, boat, bike or bus, or go by good old-fashioned foot.

London has something for everyone and we’re here to make your day in the capital as stress-free as possible, so as soon as you alight the train, you’re ready and raring to go.

Getting to London

Our network connects much of the south with London, while our Metro lines cover the areas in London. This means we’re here to ensure getting to London is a simple experience and travelling around London is seamless.

Our main terminal in London is London Victoria. The station offers easy access to Westminster and Buckingham Palace. Plus, of course, you can hop on the Tube at Victoria and make your way to any other part of London.

We also serve the London Bridge terminal from many points along our network. From there you can walk to top South Bank attractions like the Globe Theatre, the Tate Modern and the Clink Museum - or cross the river for the Tower of London.

Because we know that London days out can be costly, we have a variety of ways you can save money on your train fares. We have a range of Railcards that can save you up to 1/3 on your tickets, or if you’re enjoying a few days in the capital as a family our £2 train fares for children are a bargain. Our GroupSave tickets are perfect if you’re heading to London with 3-9 adults to enjoy a show or a night out in the capital.

Check for upcoming events at TimeOut London to help you plan your future trip and save more with our Advance tickets, including First Class from as a little as £18.

Things to do in London

London has a wealth of attractions suitable for all ages and all interests. Many of the major sights in London can be viewed by simply strolling around the city or on one of the Hop On Hop Off bus tours.

Strolling along the Embankment you’ll see Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and Somerset House and then catch the Tube to the City of London for the Tower of London, London Bridge and of course the impressive St. Paul’s Cathedral.

London has a wealth of free museums exploring everything from ancient civilisations to science and nature, the history of fashion and photography to the art of warfare. London days out aren’t complete without a visit to at least one museum.

Royalty has lived in London for nearly 1,000 years and there are plenty of royal palaces, castles and houses for you to discover. From the 11th century Tower of London to the 18th century Buckingham Palace, the royal homes have each played their part in British history and are among the most popular things to do in London.

Of course, London days out wouldn’t be complete without visiting the famous stores of Harrods, Selfridges, Liberty’s and Hamleys. Oxford Street and Regent Street offer high street and high end favourites, or for a glimpse of how the other half live, head to Knightsbridge and Mayfair.

Plan your trip to the capital and enjoy a West End show before spending an evening in Soho dancing the night away.
