Soak up the Valley of the Sun

Fly to Phoenix with British Airways and you can hike across the Sonoran Desert, watching the sun highlight the towering cliff formations that make up the Arizona skyline. One of the best spots for hiking is South Mountain Park, with over 50 trails on offer.

Meanwhile, the Desert Botanical Garden is the perfect place to learn about the different species of plants that thrive in the region’s sizzling temperatures.

There’s plenty to do in the city too, from Tex-Mex restaurants to monthly art walks that tick off the city's galleries and street performers. There’s even a castle – Tovrea Castle, nicknamed ‘The Wedding Cake’, was built almost 100 years ago. You can tour it when you book your holiday to Phoenix.

Phoenix flight FAQs

A flight from London to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport takes approximately 10 hours and 30 minutes.

The sunshine in Phoenix attracts the ‘snowbirds’ – visitors from northern states in the US seeking warmer weather during the snowy winter months. This means the city gets busy from November to April, and prices for everything from flights to hotels can be higher. The soaring temperatures in the summer often mean fewer visitors, so it can be a more affordable time to visit if you’re trying to save. It’s best to take a look at our low fare finder to find the cheapest time of year to visit Phoenix.

You can adjust your trip to Phoenix to fit your budget. Set up for a week or two in a casita – a separate guest house on a homeowner’s land – rather than in a hotel to save a few dollars, and combine your trip with a mix of paid-for entertainment and free activities. Camelback Mountain is one of the USA’s best spots for experienced hikers and it won’t cost you anything to walk the trail. Meanwhile, some of Phoenix’s museums offer free entry or reduced fees on certain days, including the Heard Museum, the Phoenix Art Museum, and the Children’s Museum of Phoenix.

You can hop in a taxi to reach Phoenix’s downtown area, or make use of the Valley Metro system, which offers transport via rail, streetcar and bus. Once you’re in the city centre, there are lots of public transport options to get you from A to B.

Phoenix lines up gorgeous weather all year round, so you can enjoy patio drinks, days lounging by the swimming pool and games of golf on the city’s pristine courses whenever you visit. Catch the cacti and wildflowers blooming in the desert during the spring, and head to the Grand Canyon if you want to see the Arizona’s northern stretch – it’s day-tripping distance from Phoenix.
