London City Airport is situated in the heart of London Docklands and is circa 6 miles east of Central London.
Sightseeing Around London City
Situated just across the river from London City Airport is the Royal Borough of Greenwich. One of the many famous landmarks situated here is the Cutty Sark, which is now the last surviving tea clipper in the world. Step on board and walk along the decks in the footsteps of sailors who sailed the ship over a century ago!
If you would rather keep your feet on dry land why not take a walk in Greenwich Park? At 183 acres it is the largest of the enclosed Royal Parks. It is also home to the Royal Observatory and of course the Prime Meridian which represents Longitude 0º.
For spectacular views of London, take a ride on the Emirates Air-Line cable car. It runs between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks and provides amazing views of the O2 Arena, Canary Wharf and The City.
