1. Check in as early as possible

If you want to start your journey relaxed, you should check in for your flight the evening before if at all possible. Choose your seat according to your particular preferences: Legroom is important to you? Then take the aisle seat. If you prefer to lean your head against the window while you sleep, better to take a window seat. Whatever seat you choose, just make sure it’s far away from the toilets. Read More »

London is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. Every year over 16 million tourists visit the British capital. But if you want to get off the beaten path from the usual tourist spots such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace or the Tower Bridge, your first stop should be www.couporando.co.uk, where you’ll find top-notch information and travel vouchers that can have you on the way to an extraordinary London experience in no time!

Smallest Police Station

Just about every visitor to London makes a stop a Trafalgar Square. Whether you realize it or not, on your way through you’ll pass by the smallest police station in London. At the corner of Trafalgar Square / Charing Cross Road, the small stone cabin seems more like a telephone box or even a public toilet. This one-man police station used to serve as an observation point, to keep things under control in what was then known as “Mob Square.”

Shakespeare in Carnaby Street

Shakespearean statues and monuments are a dime a dozen in London, but one of the most charming can be found in the Great Marlborough Street 29. From a small window above the pub called “The Shakespeare’s Head” the playwright and poet looks out poetically at the tourist crowd below. Allegedly, the founders of the pub, Thomas and John Shakespeare, were distantly related to the famous bard – but who knows if this is true, or just great fiction. Read More »
