Discover Colorado’s mile-high city

Fly to Denver from London with British Airways to begin your USA adventure.

Sitting a mile above sea level with the Great Plains to the east and the Rocky Mountains to the west, Denver’s got it all. Discover the abundant greenery, diverse neighbourhoods and a walkable centre that’s humming with activity. Start your morning in Denver with a stroll around City Park’s pristine lake before popping into the Museum of Nature and Science in the park’s grounds.

Check out the city’s thriving creative scene by walking over to River North – or RiNo, as it’s known locally. The formerly industrial buildings are now home to galleries, breweries and workspaces with enough cocktail bars and live music venues to keep you going until morning. For a change of scene, head to Denver’s upmarket Cherry Creek neighbourhood to people watch, dine in style and browse the fashion boutiques. Book your holiday to Denver today.

Denver FAQs

Flights from London Heathrow to Denver take around nine hours and 40 minutes.

Denver’s a popular destination over the peak summer months, so you’ll often find flights are cheaper from October to May. To find the cheapest flights to Denver, use our low fare finder.

If you visit Denver during spring or autumn or winter, you’re likely to save money on your flights and accommodation. Although there are fees to pay for some of the attractions and museums, so much of what Denver has to offer is free, from hiking and cycling along its nature trails or joining one of the many free walking tours. If the weather’s nice – and with nearly 300 days of sunshine a year, it's likely – pack a picnic to enjoy on day out.

In the evening, save on dining by seeking out one of the many taco, pizza or barbecue food trucks that pop up all over the city.

Denver’s airport is outside the city, but it’s easy enough to hop on a train that reaches Denver’s Union Station in the downtown area in under 40 minutes. Or choose the Skyride bus, which runs every 15 minutes during peak hours, reducing to hourly at quieter times. Getting from the airport and around the city is also easy by bus or taxi services.

You can hire a car with British Airways too if you want to see more of what Denver and Colorado have to offer. You’ll receive great benefits, with all mandatory charges included and 24-hour customer support, plus you’ll collect Avios points on every rental.

Denver’s four distinct seasons and photo-ready natural beauty means there’s always something fresh to discover.

Visit in spring or summer to see the city’s Botanic Gardens come to life, or go slightly further afield to the Rocky Mountain National Park to hike among the wildflower meadows or spot elk along the Trail Ridge Road. For a change of pace, join the locals at a baseball game at the famous Coors Field stadium, home to the Colorado Rockies.

When autumn comes around, there’s no better time to take a road trip along the Guanella Pass to the Front Range, just as the Aspen trees turn golden yellow. Then in winter, pack your salopettes and hit the slopes at Echo Mountain, west of the city, as Denver becomes the ultimate après-ski destination.
