Airport stopovers are a potential purgatory in your life, the kind of empty time you’ve got to fill or else remain catatonic until your next flight. But some cities are better for others when it comes to hanging around for a day or so.  And our favourite is London, the glistening cosmopolitan capital that’s teeming with more things to do than the imagination can fathom. After you’ve left your car with Gatwick meet and greet and hopped on a short train ride to Central London, it’s time to enjoy a 24-hour whistle-stop tour of a few of the capital’s finest locations. Here are some of our choice suggestions.

2Catch a film on a rooftop

Rooftop Cinema in Shoreditch

When the sun shines in the British capital, you don’t want to be cooped up in a cinema. But the Rooftop Cinema in Shoreditch will allow you to watch the latest releases, forgotten gems and stone-cold classics – all on a rooftop with a great screen, a superb sound system and a cracking bar. Can you think of anything more relaxing on a stopover? Probably not, so head over to the Rooftop Cinema, purchase a drink and enjoy a slice of pure cinema. Click the next ARROW to see the next image!
