Okay, here’s a tip.  If you fly into London Heathrow Airport, make sure you get the window seats on the left of the plane, and preferably not over the wing.    That way, as you come in you get a fantabulous view of London, Richmond Park and the River Thames as you come into land.  (Of course, subject to the flight path not changing, which it does every 2 weeks to give the residents a break.)
