London flight FAQs

How long is a flight to London?

Your flight time to London depends on where you’re flying from and which airport you’re landing in. A journey from New York will take approximately seven hours, while Los Angeles to London takes around 10 hours and 30 minutes.

How many hours before my flight to London do I need to go to the airport?

You should go to the airport at least three hours before your flight to London to give you plenty of time to pass through TSA.

What’s the easiest way to reach central London from the airport?

We offer flights to three different London airports, so you can choose the one that’s most convenient for where you’re staying.

London Heathrow is London’s busiest airport. There are several options for your journey into the city, including the Heathrow Express, which takes 20 minutes to Paddington. The Elizabeth Line and Piccadilly tube line offer travel to other stations across the capital.

Catch a direct train from London Gatwick via the Gatwick Express and you’ll be at Victoria station in south London in 30 minutes. Or, hop on a Southern Rail train to get off at a stop close by.

Board the DLR from the train station just 50 metres from London City Airport for connections to the London underground network. It takes just 10 minutes to reach Canning Town tube station, where you can change to the Jubilee line.

What’s the cheapest month to fly to London?

London’s year-round charm has made it one of Europe’s most visited cities. It's very busy during the British school holidays, especially throughout the summer and Christmas period, when fares may be higher.

Is London cheap to visit?

You can easily adapt the cost of your trip to London to fit your budget. You’ll find accommodation at a range of price points, and the city’s great transport links mean you can choose to stay somewhere more affordable and hop on the tube to wherever’s on your itinerary. There are lots of free attractions too, including museums, galleries and parks.

What's the weather like in London?

London’s weather is famously unpredictable and can change quickly, so it’s worth packing sun protection as well as a rain jacket and umbrella. Summers in the city can sometimes be very warm so make sure to stay hydrated, and bring layers if you’re travelling at other times of the year as temperatures can drop unexpectedly.

Is it easy to get around London?

London has an excellent public transport system. Transport for London – known locally as TfL – offers connections across the city by both underground and overground trains, buses and boats along the River Thames. Lots of TfL’s services run until the early hours and some operate through the night during the weekends, but make sure to check before you travel.

Why visit London?

London really is an unmissable city. There’s so much to see and do, with a line-up of neighbourhoods to explore and easy access to some of the UK’s other historic towns and cities. You can tick off the Tower of London, walk the charming streets of Notting Hill and take a boat to Greenwich Market. From the buzzing nightlife scene to the long list of brunch restaurants on offer, you can fill every hour of your day with excitement or relaxation – it’s all to be uncovered on your trip to London.
