  • Peak season: Summer, June through to September.

Direct flights to Chicago take just less than 9 hours from London, although flights with one stopover can also take as little as 10.5 hours.

Experience Chicago: what to see, what to do

Essentials in Chicago

Magnificent Mile: Not only will you find interesting shopping here, but you'll also see the tallest buildings in the USA here. It's modern but you'll also find a few historical gems here like the Wrigley Building and the Tribune Tower building.

Chicago cuisine: Chicago cuisine is a blended diversity of tastes and enjoyable dining experiences. Try a Chicago hot dog that is smothered mustard, onion, relish, pickle and tomato and cheese. The main dish though, is deep dish pizza. It's made with thin crust and baked with all the toppings.

Loop Art Tour: For street art and public sculpture, take yourself on a walking tour, called the Loop Art Tour of downtown. It's like a free art museum and is best enjoyed on a sunny day! It takes you through Millennium Park, to the famous Art Institute of Chicago, to Aon Centre Plaza and onwards to several other cool spots in the city. It takes 2-4 hours.
