A wealth of history – from royal palaces to ruined castles – and ever-changing scenery – from idyllic villages to dramatic coasts – awaits you in England, the largest nation of the British Isles. The cultural home of Turner, Shakespeare, the Beatles and Harry Potter offers artistic treats, drama and a little wizardry for all.
Temperatures may be mild in England but its climate is notoriously changeable and unreliable. Rainfall is plentiful, particularly in fall and winter, although even the Great British Summer is not immune to rain stopping play at frequent intervals. The driest months are May, June, September and October.
Summer is traditionally the high season and when hotel and flight prices are at their highest. Winter is, in general, the low season and those not looking for sun (and packing a brolly) can find the cheapest flights in the early months of the year between January and early March.
With six airports serving the capital, and plenty of regional choices too, it’s worth experimenting with our ‘Nearby airports’ option to see if an alternative arrival point in England may offer you a cheaper fare. You can also use this option to check for flight prices to England from other US departure airports.
If your vacation dates are not fixed, tick the ‘My dates are flexible’ check box and we’ll show you exactly when the cheapest air fares to England are close to your preferred date.
You can quickly highlight the best deals by sorting and filtering your England flight results. Use the range of options on the left-hand side to zone in on certain types of flight – such as connecting/direct or refundable/non-refundable – or to organize your flights by price, duration, airline or time of day.
The largest airports are London Heathrow and London Gatwick – the majority of direct flights from the US will land here.
However, the airports at Luton, Stansted, Southend and City also offer easy access to the south of England and the capital.
Manchester and Liverpool are also served by their own airports, while the Cotswolds and Shakespeare's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon are incredibly close to Birmingham Airport.
Carriers offering direct flights to England from US airports include:
England’s airports are well connected to nearby towns and cities, as well as to the wider transport network whether you are travelling by road, rail or air.
Although a small country it can be a real time-saver to book an internal flight to whisk yourself from one English scene to another. Cheap flights are easy to find and options are plentiful.
You won’t have any problems getting to and from the airport, wherever you touch down in England. Local bus or coach services are one of the cheapest methods of getting from airport to destination, and taxi or shuttle services are also readily available.
All major airports have railway stations available from the terminals. Using the train is a fast and convenient way to travel – book your tickets in advance and you will save a lot of money on your fare.
Car hire in England is also a popular option and the country is small enough to mean you are never behind the wheel for too long.
The capital is still swinging after all these years. Famous for its culture, museums, theatres, galleries and nightlife, London moves with the times but still packs a powerful historical punch. Visit the Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace by day, dine at world-class restaurants in the evening and then dance the night away in your choice of hipper-than-thou club.
A must-see destination for Beatles fans. Visit the Cavern Club where it all began, take a trip to Strawberry Fields and relive it all at the Beatles Museum.
Holy Island lies off the Northumberland Coast near the Scottish border. This is one of the wildest stretches of beach in England and it’s watched over by the atmospheric Bamburgh Castle, adrift in a sea of windswept dunes.
Home to two of England’s most popular football teams – Manchester United and Manchester City – you can get closer to the legends and history of these iconic clubs on a stadium tour.
