    Should Tom say 'on' instead of for?

    Mary: Why did you go to London.
    Tom: I went there for holiday.
    Is 'for' right here? Should Tom say 'on' instead of for?
    THANKS.

    There should be a question mark after 'London'.

    Tom should say 'I went there for a holiday' or better — 'I went there on holiday'.
