    The formalities for travelling to London

    • Entry requirements: Great Britain is still a member of the European Union, but it never became part of the Schengen Area. That means citizens of the European Union don’t need a visa to visit London. However, you will need a passport or identity card for your trip.
    • Currencies: you will pay for your purchases on Carnaby Street in pounds sterling, or as the English call them, simply “pounds”. It’s a good idea to leave with a few notes bearing pictures of Queen Elizabeth II in your pocket. To exchange your euros, go to one of the two branches of Interchange (one in each terminal) at Nice Côte d'Azur Airport.

    Arriving at London Airport

    Which airport should you choose for your trip to London? That depends whether you are in a hurry to get to the centre.

    ● City Airport is closest, located just 10 kilometres from the city centre.
    ● Heathrow is also a strong contender thanks to the Heathrow Express, which takes just over 15 minutes to get to the middle of London (30 minutes with the Heathrow Connect train and 45 minutes with the Piccadilly Line of the London Underground).
    ● Gatwick also has a direct train to the capital: the Gatwick Express. It takes 30 minutes to get to Victoria Station. The easyBus shuttles take twice as long, but the price is unbeatable.
    ● Stansted is 60 kilometres from the centre of London. The train is the fastest way to the city centre: the Stansted Express can get you to Liverpool Street Station in 45 minutes. The Terravision and easyBus buses go to Victoria Station or Liverpool Street. They take much longer, but they are significantly cheaper.
    ● London Luton does not have its own station. You will need to take a Terravision, easyBus or National Express bus. These take one to one and a half hours to get to Victoria Station.
    In all cases, you can choose a taxi or hire car over public transport.

What to do in
London ?

Wherever you’re from and however patriotic you are, there’s no denying it: London is an exceptional city. It has a crazy energy, it oozes modernity, and yet Londoners can be wonderfully old-school, with firm traditions and admirable composure. London is highly chic Harrods and crazy Camden, black cabs and gold Bentleys, Buckingham Place and The Shard (a glass skyscraper by Renzo Piano and the tallest building in the European Union). The English capital is a city of contrasts where anything is possible. And that’s why we love it.

    We all have a little bit of London in us. The memory of a few phrases from Charles Dickens or J. K. Rowling, a song by Dire Straits, the Police or Coldplay that keeps coming into our head, and eternal, universal icons: the bonnet ornament of a Rolls Royce, the Abbey Road zebra crossing, Big Ben’s clock, a bright red phone box…
    However good or limited your English, London’s call is hard to resist! The streets of Camden Town’s famous market are filled with the delights of our youth, bursting with punk, rock and pop gems. The city tells us enchanting stories of queens and princesses. It is the kingdom of musicals. It shows us the future reflected in the glass walls of its skyscrapers: the Shard, the Gherkin, the Leadenhall Building (nicknamed the Cheesegrater), 20 Fenchurch Street (the Walkie-Talkie)…
    And the best thing about London? It has something for everyone! It caters for intellectuals and party animals alike. It is a place for young and old. Bring your family: teenagers will love the ultra-trendy clothes chops and younger children will be delighted by the big parks filled with wildlife, the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and the theme parks. Come alone or with friends, for a weekend or longer, and visit some of the world’s best museums, dance to electro music at Ministry of Sound or Latin music at Guanabara.

    1. Be royal! Visit the emblematic sites of England’s crown: Buckingham, Kensington, Hampton Court (haunted by the wives of Henry VIII), or the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels (a mere 23,578 precious stones!).
    2. Enjoy a taste of modernity at the Design Museum, the largest museum of its kind in the world, and the Tate Modern, a temple of modern and contemporary art, with works by Dali, Warhol, Picasso, Modigliani, Bacon, Mondrian, etc.
    3. Go on a shopping spree. There are plenty of places to choose from: department stores like Harrods and Selfridges, Oxford Street, Regent Street or Carnaby Street, Covent Garden market or Westfield Stratford, the biggest urban shopping centre in Europe.
    4. Drink! Sip tea at the Ritz, quaff champagne at Vertigo 42 (Tower 42’s panoramic bar), or savour a beer in a pub with several centuries of history: Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, Ye Olde Mitre, The Prospect of Whitby…
    5. Feel the romance in Notting Hill. Pastel coloured houses, cupcakes from the Hummingbird Bakery, antiques dealers and flea markets on Portobello Road: love at first sight guaranteed!
    6. Track down some graffiti by Bansky, the famous street artist from Bristol. He has created many works in London and you can find a map of them online.
    7. Go back in time with a trip to see the mummies at the British Museum, or even further back for the dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum or Crystal Palace Park.
    8. Have a magical experience with Harry Potter. Visit the Warner Bros studios, take a photo in front of Platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross station and stroll around the covered streets of Leadenhall Market.
    9. Get on the London Eye, Big Ben’s neighbour. 135 metres in diameter, this big wheel has rotating glass pods for a 360° view of London!
    10. Cross the Thames on the Emirates Air Line, a cable car that goes up to height of 90 metres, or if you prefer, take Tower Bridge. Its glass floor is not for the faint-hearted!
