Uncover Ghana’s cultural capital

Ghana's capital sits on its southern border, its shores lapped by the Gulf of Guinea. This coastal city is home to some of the best beaches in the country, so you can easily swap the heat and hum of the busy streets for a few hours of relaxation.
Flights to Accra reveal so much more than just great beaches. Start with Black Star Square, right in the heart of the city. Take in the towering statues – they play a starring role in all the big events that take place here, from festivals to celebrations. Then pay a visit to the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, a beautiful garden and the resting place of Ghana’s first prime minister and president. Right next door you’ll find the Centre for National Culture, a marketplace packed with locally made trinkets, clothes and arts and crafts. Another shopping spot worth the trip is Makola Market, the city’s largest open-air bazaar. Book your holiday to Ghana now to see it all for yourself.
A flight from London to Accra’s Kotoka Airport takes approximately six hours and 35 minutes.
The weather in Accra is warm all year, thanks to its close proximity to the equator, but it has a wet season and a dry one. The winter months, November to February, are the driest, and in December the city turns into a giant party, with a host of events and festivities taking place. This can make prices go up, so to avoid them – and the winds blown in from the Sahara at this time of year – have a look for flights outside of those months. Use our low fare finder to find the cheapest time to visit Accra.
Whether you’re splashing out or counting your pennies, it’s easy to make your trip to Accra fit your budget. Visit the markets to pick up street food and souvenirs – you can haggle with stall owners to get great prices. Attractions are often also free to visit, or charge just a small entrance fee.
It takes about 25 minutes to reach Accra’s city centre by car. If you take a taxi, make sure it’s a licensed one. Alternatively, if you’re staying in a hotel, your accommodation may offer a pick-up service from the airport.
Accra’s a vibrant and exciting city, home to some of Ghana’s historical highlights, all-night parties and relaxing beaches. During the day, learn more about the country at the National Museum of Ghana. Then in the evening, sip cocktails at the top of the Alto Tower, the tallest building in West Africa. And if you want to escape the city for a while, the photo-ready Boti Falls are just a couple of hours away from Accra’s buzz.
