City Trip London

There's something magical about London. No matter how many times you've been there, city trips to London don't go out of style. The city always reinvents itself, so you get to know something new every time you visit it.

London is always good for a surprise. The city at the Thames is a trendsetter and benchmark for fashion, art, design and gastronomy.

How to get to London

Whether with Swiss, British Airways, Easyjet or other airlines, there are several daily flights from Switzerland to London, whereby the flight lasts only a little more than one and a half hours. Train enthusiasts do not have to be sad, as since 1994, one can also travel to the British island by train via Paris with the underwater tunnel.

Sightseeing tour in a double-decker bus

For your first stay in London, we recommend a city tour with the famous red double-decker bus. Get a rough overview of the city and its sights. If you like a particular place, get off and take the next bus for the rest of the journey.

From Harrod's to Oxford Street

Those who have already visited the sightseeings can dedicate themselves to shopping without a bad conscience. There are more than enough shopping possibilities in London. Beside the extravagant department store Harrods, there are numerous shopping streets in which you can find brand shops and local boutiques. Oxford Street, Carnaby Street or Kings Road are just a few of the streets the Shopaholics visit on their route.

Art and Culture

London also has a lot to offer for art lovers. Whether National Gallery, Tate Britain or Tate Modern - which the Basel architects Herzog & de Meuron created from a former power station - the selection of museums and exhibitions is inexhaustible. Go to the wild East, the East End around Whitechapel and experience the true London charm. 250 galleries, pretty cafés, quaint shops and lots of multiculturalism characterise the cityscape and invite you to linger.

London - the musical metropolis

The metropolis also has a lot to offer for musical and film lovers. Musical and theatre plays celebrate their premieres almost every week. Guided themed city tours are also always exciting, instructive and funny. Follow in the footsteps of Jack the Ripper, Harry Potter, James Bond or other celebrities.
