In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
USS Arizona Memorial and Battleship Missouri Memorial will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa), Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park) and Banzai Pipeline (in Pupukea). There's much more to do: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, walk around Ala Moana Beach Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Kapiolani Regional Park, and cruise along Makapu'u Point.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu day trip site .

London, UK to Honolulu is an approximately 20.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight.
