London is a medium-sized city in Ontario, located west of Toronto, between Lake Huron and Lake Erie at the forks of the Thames River (not to be confused with the River Thames in London, England).

London is a major agricultural centre for southwestern Ontario, founded in 1792. It was once known for its courthouse and gallows, but is now a typical thriving mid-sized city. Although named after the British city, and features similarly named landmarks such as Piccadilly St., the Covent Garden Market and the Thames River, London Ontario has little else in common with the British capital.

Get in

By plane
  The London International Airport is serviced by a handful of airlines which primarily fly in connecting from Toronto or Detroit. The airport is on the fringe of the city, and is thus not serviced by the city bus service.

By train
VIA Rail 

By car
London is most readily accessed from highway 401, which runs through the southern part of the city and connects London with Toronto and other parts of the country. The speed limit on the 401 in most parts is 100 kmh, but expect most people to be traveling at ~120 kmh in good conditions. The easiest exit off the 401 to London is Highbury Ave.

While traveling around London by car, simply keep in mind the main grid system of the streets. Fanshawe Park Road runs east-west across the northern part of the city. It intersects Richmond street at Masonville Plaza in the north-eastern part of the city. Richmond continues south in the eastern part of the city. Fanshawe also intersects Adelaide street more west, and Adelaide again continues south.

By bus
Greyhound, and various other bus terminals, mostly located in downtown London.
