gay London

There is so much to do and see in gay London, the capital of England, that it can be a bit of a challenge to not be bloody confused. Here are some ideas on what take in over a weekend. Flying directly overnight on a Friday allows one to rise early to take on the long U.K. Saturday. American Airlines has a luxurious business classwhich is strongly recommended in order to get a good night’s sleep and avoid jet lag. Perks include unlimited wine, better food selections, programmable private movies, hot towels and warm nuts.

After arriving, taxis can be expensive to head into the heart of town; instead, try a few options, such at Blacklane, that have car service for a flat rate. Some of the city is walkable; however, after the drizzly rain and getting lost, it is easier to take The London Underground, sometimes called the Tube. It is the oldest underground railway network in the world, and is fairly easy to navigate.

For accommodations, The Langham, London is a beautiful property right in the heart of the city. The concierge service was easy on the eyes and nice for that traveler who needs a bit of hand-holding. Many Londoners are polite, but the staff here took it to a new level. The bar and restaurant were both top-notch. Who wants to leave digs like this? However, it was time to press onward.
