Peak Season:

London is immensely popular all year-round, meaning the price of your flight tickets will vary. On the other hand, it isn’t too hard to find cheap flights to London from some UK airports. A lot of visitors come to London in the summer months, between June and September, however due to its brilliant festive celebrations, Christmas, New Years and Easter are also busy times. Families tend to pay a visit to the capital during half-term breaks too so expect museums, parks and attractions to get busy and flights to London to increase.

Off Season:

For a quieter experience of London (although London is always bustling), planning a visit between April and May and September to October can be youngest option to grab cheap flights to London, as well as enjoy less tourists. This is partially due to school terms starting or exam times and means that there will be cheaper room deals and less crowds, but you will still be able to enjoy all of the peak season attractions. You can normally find cheap flights to London in January and February too, although the weather does take a turn for the worse.

Which airlines operate flights to London?

British airways is the main airline that offers the cheapest flights to London, closely followed by Ryanair. Flybe and Easy jet are also competitive with their prices so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a cheap flight. If you’re only going for a weekend and can make do with just hand luggage, Ryanair could be a prime airline as they normally sting you with checked in baggage.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Due to the fact London has 4 major airports, there are several ways to find your way to the centre. The main option and most popular choice is the catch a train directly to your desired stop. Heathrow for example has a train that goes to and from the airport and is extremely regular.

If you’re flying into Luton, you can take a bus to the London Underground and continue your journey from there. Because of the size of London, the underground is probably your best choice regardless of where you fly into, as it offers several stops all over the city. Driving is not very practical in London and a lot of areas require payment. A last resort (or if you do have lots of baggage) is to grab a taxi. However congestion in London is ripe and you will end up paying a fortune and taking more time to reach your destination.
