Forget the layover blues - get out of the airport and into the streets of London with one of our local London hosts who will show you snippets of the city through a local lens while you wait for your next flight.

Tailored to fit your time, budget and interests, see the city's most famous attractions or discover pockets of London that you have never seen before. Time is of the essence and, while you may not be able to see it all, your host will help you make the most of your time.

You could squeeze in some last-minute sightseeing, taking in the wonders of Westminster, the London Eye and Trafalgar Square, or you could explore a neighborhood, where there are markets, unique boutiques and quirky independent venues galore.

If you have a long flight ahead of you and you’re not looking forward to the in-flight meals (who is?), your local London host can take you somewhere to enjoy a delicious meal together.

After all, good food tastes even better with good company. So don’t waste a single second mooching about at the airport, get out there and see some of what London has to offer!
