Vantaa
Though technically its own city, Vantaa is considered by many to be a Helsinki suburb, and it is where most visitors land when they fly to Finland.
On the 26th (Sat), take a pleasant ride with Savijarvi Gard Manor, stroll the grounds of Tuusula Church, then examine the collection at Vantaa Art Museum, and finally buy something for everyone on your list at Flamingo Entertainment Center.

To see reviews, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Vantaa visit planner.

London, UK to Vantaa is an approximately 7- hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from London to Vantaa. In May, plan for daily highs up to 18°C, and evening lows to 6°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to catch the train to Helsinki.
