Evening - Make your escape
With up to 15 flights to New York from London departing every day, the British Airways schedule means you can be flexible. Catch the 18:00 flight from London Heathrow to JFK. You'll land just after 21:00, meaning you can be in the city centre around an hour later – in time for a nightcap, or a good night’s sleep – it’s up to you.
The panoramic views from Top of the Rock mean that you’ll see both Central Park and the Empire State Building
As it’s your first time in the city, base yourself in Midtown Manhattan for easy access to the iconic sights. The InterContinental New York Barclay is synonymous with old fashion luxury – classic features from its 1920s legacy include art-deco furniture, geometric furnishings and a Gin Parlour. A more affordable option is the Roosevelt (E 45th Street) – the art deco hotel is just down the road from Grand Central Station.
