Is there are special name for the verb tense which takes the form:
'going to' + infinitive? For example:
I'm going to travel to London tomorrow.
I think it might be called the 'going to future', but it doesn't sound very professional to my ears.
I don't know that it's a different verb form. However, in your example, the second "to" is a preposition, not an infinitive, since London is not a verb.
A better example would be: I'm going to go to eat.

Thanks for the replies, everyone.
