Portland to London, A-to-Zed


Anglophiles of the Pacific Northwest, we’ve got absolutely smashing news! Delta will offer nonstop seasonal flights to London four days per week starting in May of 2017. Here are 26 sights to see, shops to browse, and spots to hang that will make any PDX native feel right at home in London.

A is for the Animals at the London Zoo, with its beautiful new tiger enclosure and its famous “Lates”,  adult-only Friday night parties that tend to get wild. https://www.zsl.org/


B is for the Burgers at Mother Flippers. These street-food sensations are only available on Saturdays at a stall in the Brockley Market. One of their signature Dirty Barbies (double patty and double cheese with candy bacon and candy onions) will keep you full for a whole day of sightseeing.  http://www.motherflipperburgers.com/

C is for Clock, the one in London’s iconic Big Ben atop the Houses of Parliament.


D is for Doughnuts, because a true Portlander needs them wherever they go.  Try the Sea Salt Caramel Banana at Crosstown. https://www.crosstowndoughnuts.com/
