London is one of the biggest and most important cities in the world. Explore this amazing city.

Flights to London

There are five international airports where flights to London land with a sixth being built in readiness for the Olympic Games. London also has another four airports which handle domestic flights. The world famous Heathrow Airport (LHR) is undoubtedly the largest and is located 20 miles west of central London. Heathrow is one of the busiest airports in the world and quite possibly the most sophisticated with sleek intra-airport transport and lovely dining. The second largest is Gatwick Airport (LGW) in West Sussex, 30 miles south of central London and Europe's leading airport for point-to-point flights. Other international airports include: London City Airport (LCY), Stansted Airport (STN) and London Luton Airport (LTN). Transport options to and from the airports include: the London Underground, rail, coach, and taxi—the frequency of the transportation systems make London flights a breeze.

London Weather

London has a reputation of being a rainy city with a 5-month chilly to cold winter from November to March. Winter temperatures can dip below freezing, so be sure to pack warm clothes if traveling at this time. London flights in the summer will meet temperatures in June and August around 60 to 70 degrees. Spring and autumn can be mixed. July is probably the best month to visit, although this is peak season and quite expensive, as this is the best time to avoid bad weather in London. November is normally the rainiest month of the year, so you can save money on London flights, but be sure to purchase an umbrella at Heathrow on the way out of the sliding doors.

Getting Around London

London's public transportation systems' efficiency and mapping is legendary with frequent and timely trains, with the tube, buses, and coaches widely available all within reachable distance and offering comfort and reliability. If you will be travelling considerably within London, then the savings offered by a travel pass are considerable. Travel passes can be used on trains, buses, and the London Underground for various periods. Taxis are also available but travelling by road in Central London during the day may not be the fastest way, and with London's congestion, hiring a car is expensive. Late night (after midnight) options lessen as the transportation system shuts down, although there are regular night buses and the famous black cab.

London Attractions

London's illustrious heritage and the diversity of people and cultures make London one of the top destinations in the world. Your London flight is one step closer to a memorable stay and lasting impression.

  • London 2012 Games, the festivities of this event draw sports enthusiasts from every country in the world
  • The London Eye, the world's largest observation wheel offers amazing views of the city
  • Madame Tussauds, dancing with the stars, sitting down to tea with the Queen, flirting with Britney Spears are all possible at this wax museum

  • The London Dungeon, uncomfortably close to old school London law
  • London When to Go

    London has a reputation for being wet and dark, and while the reputation holds up in the fall and winter months, when a spot of sun is something to celebrate, visitors to London get good weather if they know when to go.

    The best time to visit London is summer, when temperatures average in the low to mid 70s and precipitation is minimal. This, of course, is when airfare and hotels are at their peak prices. But good weather in London can be worth the extra cash.

    Most travelers avoid London from October through January, when temperatures are coldest. That said, you’ll find great winter deals on airfare and hotels. If museums and other indoor spaces are on your to-do list, this season may be a great budget option for you. Hearty raincoat required.
