Stockholm flight FAQ's

A flight from London to Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport takes approximately two hours and 30 minutes.

The most popular time to visit Stockholm is summer, when the weather is at its warmest and you can make the most of the city’s beautiful waterfronts and al fresco dining. You could save by exploring Stockholm at a different time of year, like spring.

If you’re planning a city break to Stockholm, there are a few ways to make your trip fit your budget. You can explore an array of fascinating museums for free, and the city is compact and walkable, which could help save on transport costs. There are also street food stalls on hand when you get peckish, which can be a little more affordable than the cafes or restaurants.

There are plenty of ways to get from Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport to  the city centre. Hop on board an express train, which takes around 20 minutes, or opt for an airport coach which gets you to the centre in around 45 minutes. You can also travel by local train, which takes 45 minutes.  

When you’re ready to explore the city, Stockholm has a well-connected and efficient metro system that makes it easy to get around. 

You can also  hire a car with British Airways if you want to get out of the city and see more of what Sweden has 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.

There’s so much to do in Stockholm, so if you’re planning a short break, it’ll be action-packed. While you’re here, visit Stockholm’s City Hall, one of the most iconic buildings along the city’s skyline. Wander through Hornstulls Marknad, the outdoor street market, and grab some tasty Swedish meatballs. Head to stylish Södermalm to see some world-class photography at Fotografiska. Explore Stockholm’s art-filled metro system and see each station’s vibrant murals and elaborate statues. Visit some of Stockholm’s most historic sights, like the ornate Stockholm Cathedral and the opulent Royal Palace. Take in the spectacular views across Lake Mälaren and finish your trip with an elegant evening at the opera at the Royal Swedish Opera house.
