Romford is a large town in East London, England, and the administrative centre of the London Borough of Havering. Change things up with these side-trips from Romford: Chislehurst Caves (in Chislehurst), Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar (in Biggin Hill) and Charles Darwin Down House (in Downe). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St Patrick's Barking, stroll around Kelsey Park, see the interesting displays at William Morris Gallery, and admire the natural beauty at Hall Place and Gardens.

Cairo, Egypt to Romford is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Cairo to Romford due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Cairo in December, with highs in Romford at 12°C and lows at 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Mon) early enough to travel to Hounslow.
