3. How long is the flight?
Direct flights from Dubai to London will take up to 7 hours and 30 minutes without disruptions. This journey time will significantly increase with layovers, and flights can take 10 hours or even longer. As London is 3 hours behind Dubai, you may want to factor in some recovery time when you arrive.
4. Climate changes between Dubai to London
The hot, desert climate of Dubai is completely different from London’s cool, island climate. Although London can feel hot and muggy in the summer, with temperatures rising to 77°F between July and September, this doesn’t feel as intense as Dubai’s average temperature in summer, which can exceed 95°F.
5. Culture differences and need-to-know
The currency used in London is the Great British Pound, which can be exchanged quite easily on arrival. If you run out of cash during your stay, there are plenty of bureau de changes throughout the city.
Coming from Dubai, you are most likely to be familiar with a massive glass and steel conurbation like London. The main difference is that, in London, you are likely to see a huge contrast, with Victorian, Tudor and even Roman buildings beside towering skyscrapers.
While a huge variety of languages are spoken in London, it is naturally easiest to communicate in English with many of the locals.
Flying from Dubai’s high year-round temperatures, arriving in London will no doubt be a relief. Experience the charm of this enchantingly beautiful city by taking an open-top bus tour around some of the most famous sites. Alternatively, despite its huge size, London remains an easy city to explore on foot and a walk along the Thames is not to be missed – for those of you who enjoy a hike, the 3-mile-long walk from Tower Bridge to Westminster is not to be passed up.
Perhaps London is most famous for being an enormous melting pot of cultures from around the world, including Europe, Africa, and Asia. If there is a culinary delicacy you want to try, you will find it in London, and usually with a local twist of extra flavor. The Old Spitalfields Market or the market on Brick Lane are among the best places for a culinary tour of the world.
Other famous sites that cannot be missed include Buckingham Palace, which sees the ritual Changing of the Guard several times throughout the week. Alternatively, the museums around South Kensington are perfect for a family day out, especially if you’re suddenly caught out by a rainstorm.
There is so much to do in London, you might not know where to start. We’re certain, however, that once you get going, you’ll never want to stop.
