What is there to do in London?
You won’t be short on things to do when you step off your Cape Town to London flight.

Tick off top sights like Buckingham Palace and Westminster Cathedral, then explore quirky areas of the city, like Soho and Shoreditch. When it comes to eating and drinking, things are more expensive in London, so your Great British Pounds won’t go as far as your South African Rands. And bear in mind the difference in climate, too. While January tends to be South Africa’s hottest month, it’s one of the UK’s coldest, so you’ll want to pack winter clothing for your Cape Town to London flight.
