London, known as the Forest City for its greenness, is at the very heart of Southwestern Ontario. The city offers wonderful green spaces, a packed calendar of cultural events and festivals, and a lively downtown core. There are traces of the “other London” here too. The river is called the Thames, there is a Covent Garden Market, and you can take a tour in one of the iconic red double-decker buses.
About one million visitors take cheap flights to London each year, most of them in the summer months, to attend festivals such as Sunfest, the Home County Folk Festival and the London Rib Fest, Canada’s largest festival devoted to sticky and delicious ribs.
London’s parks are part of the fabric of the city. There are extensive bike (22km of paved paths along the Thames) and walking trails, wading pools and waterpads. Victoria Park is the lungs of the city, located right in the downtown core. It hosts the festivals and celebrations that make London such a vibrant destination.
A short drive away are the historic sites, theatres, provincial parks and freshwater beaches of Shakespeare Country, this part of Canada that celebrates the heritage of one of its founding nations.
