It's India's capital city and compared to the larger metropolis of Delhi, New Delhi is a tranquil, surprisingly serene area with wide, clean streets and lush lawns aplenty.
You can fly to New Delhi directly from London Heathrow with airlines including Virgin Atlantic, British Airways and Air India. The flight takes around nine hours. You can also take an indirect flight which is not only often cheaper, but'll also allow you to depart from a wider choice of airports across the UK. All flights lands at Indira Gandhi International Airport which is around 15 kilometres from New Delhi city centre. To get to your New Delhi hotel you can take the metro (the station's located in Terminal 3), catch a local bus or simply hop in a taxi (purchase a pre-paid voucher from the taxi desk).
Despite being a lot smaller than Delhi, there's still plenty to see and do during a holiday in New Delhi. It's home to the seat of government for one, with plenty of stunning architecture to marvel at, from the Indian Parliament building to the beautifully kept foreign embassies. For shopping, bargain hunters should brush up on their haggling skills and head over to Connaught Place. While you're in the city, it's also worth checking out the many highlights Delhi itself has to offer, from the Red Fort and Humayun's tomb to India Gate.
