Book Flights to Budapest

Budapest is a city split into two distinct halves by the Danube River. On one side is Buda, which is home to a line-up of historic sights. Its castle-topped hills overlook Pest on the other side of the river, where the city’s famous ruin bars and nightlife can be enjoyed.

Fly to Budapest with British Airways and enjoy a memorable city break. Ride the funicular up to Buda Castle to visit the National Gallery and the Budapest History Museum and admire the view of the Chain Bridge as you go. From the Castle District and the Fisherman’s Bastion you can also enjoy sweeping views across the river and get an uninterrupted view of the impressive Hungarian Parliament building. Alternatively, enjoy the views from a boat while cruising along the Danube to Margaret Island, a peaceful escape from the city’s busy streets. You can walk through the island’s gardens and enjoy some tunes at the Musical Fountain. Then spend the evening bar hopping in Pest, starting at Szimpla Kert, a building forgotten after World War II that’s now one of the city’s most popular watering holes.
