Houston flight FAQs

A flight from London Heathrow to Houston takes just over 10 hours.

Use our low fare finder to discover the cheapest time to visit Houston. Summer is the most popular time to visit Houston, so book your flights for spring or winter to save but still enjoy pleasant weather just before the summer, and indoor attractions in the winter.

You can make your trip to Houston fit any budget. Explore the great parks across the city, enjoy a free boat ride or visit museums on their free admission days. You can also catch a free show at the Miller Outdoor Theatre during the quieter months in the city, so make sure you bring a blanket so you can enjoy sitting on the grass. Take some time to wander around the Museum District and stop for a picnic in Hermann Park too.

Once you land at Houston Intercontinental Airport you can get into downtown Houston in around 70 minutes by catching the bus. If you’d like a quicker journey, you can opt for a taxi, which will get you into the city in about 20 minutes. You can also hire a car with British Airways if you want to get out of the city and see more of what Texas 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.

Texas’ largest city – and the fourth largest in the entire USA – is well worth a visit. From diverse residential neighbourhoods to clusters of restaurants and an abundance of pubs, patios and parks, there’s so much to explore. One of the main attractions is NASA’s Space Center Houston, which is just a 30-minute drive away. Don’t forget to check out the Menil Collection and the associated Rothko Chapel too.
