5 Layover Activities in London
Flying to Europe? A long layover in London is a distinct possibility. Unless you're doomed to sit at the airport because of visa issues or have just-enough-time to do nothing, consider a quick trip into Central London on the Paddington Express (allow 30 minutes for the long walk within the airport and then 15 minutes on the train) and by jove, you've made it to the heart of the city. Four of London's most popular museums and attractions are a short cab or tube ride away. While you are in the neighborhood, reward yourself with an ample high tea at Harrods before heading back to the airport. You'll need about 6 hours to visit a museum and relax at Harrods.
