    Dear Sir/Modam

    I would like to know about this sentences

    Have you been to London?

    Re: Proposition

    In my experience, only "Have you been TO London?" is correct, although we use the preposition IN in most cases where we use the verb TO BE:

    I'm IN London (Present Simple)
    I was IN London yesterday (Past Simple)

    but: I've been TO London (Present Perfect)
    I'd been TO London (Past Perfect)

    I only use the the verb TO BE + TO in Perfect tenses
