Vibrant and noisy, London is one of the world’s leading cities, an international capital of culture, education, fashion, music, finance, trade, and politics.
Visit Stonehenge and St. Paul's Cathedral for their historical value. Step out of London with an excursion to Salisbury Cathedral and Magna Carta in Salisbury--about 1h 50 min away. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Westminster Abbey, ponder the world of politics at Houses of Parliament, contemplate the long history of Tower of London, and admire the masterpieces at National Gallery.

To see more things to do, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, read London day trip website.

Knoxville, USA to London is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 5 hours traveling from Knoxville to London.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Thu) to allow time to travel to Edinburgh.
