When is the best time to book a flight to United Kingdom?

The price you pay for your flight to United Kingdom may vary depending on when you book. For the best chance of a lower fare, look to book 60 days in advance of your trip. Fares are likely to increase a fortnight or so before your departure date.

Which day is cheapest to fly to United Kingdom?

The cheapest flights to United Kingdom are usually found when departing on a Wednesday. The departure day with the highest cost at present is Saturday.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to United Kingdom?

United Kingdom flights can be made cheaper if you choose a flight in the afternoon. Booking a flight in the morning will likely mean higher prices.

The Union Jack, the Queen and lively pubs are among some of the quintessential images that portray the UK. But beyond these clichés is a country with great history and some of the most wonderfully diverse landscapes on the planet. Made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland travelers thinking of a trip to the UK could find it hard to choose just one place to visit. The obvious choice might be England and its thriving capital London or the seaside town of Brighton and the picturesque villages of Cornwall. Those in search of a little more adventure or an active vacation should head to Wales where its mountainous terrain and hiking trails will keep even the most jaded adventurer agape.

The cities of Scotland, particularly Edinburgh and Glasgow, are always popular with travelers to the UK. But venture further north to Perthshire and the Grampian hills of Angus to get a taste of the rich Scottish countryside. The counties of Northern Ireland offer visitors traveling to the UK a range of activities including fishing, and rock climbing in County Down or strolling through acres of apple orchards in Armagh.

How long is the flight to the United Kingdom?

Flights to the United Kingdom vary considerably depending on a number of factors. These factors include which United States city you are departing from, where in the United Kingdom you are going, and how many layovers the flight has. Multiple stops can add on a lot of time to UK flights, but some of the best United Kingdom flight deals will have more stops than direct flights. So how much time is the average to get to the UK? If you’re flying from New York City to London, for example, this will take around 9h 30m. If you’re flying from New York City to Glasgow, Scotland, this flight will take about 9h 10m.

Which cities offer direct flights to the United Kingdom?

There are a number of US cities that offer direct flights to various popular cities in the United Kingdom. London is quite possibly one of the most traveled to cities in the United Kingdom, so getting there is a lot easier that a smaller town or region in the UK. At this time, direct flights are offered from major cities in the United States including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington D.C. Direct flights are also offered to Edinburgh and Glasgow, both in Scotland.

What is the best way to travel around the United Kingdom?

Depending on where you go in the United Kingdom, the best mode of transportation can vary considerably. If it’s London you are traveling to, you’ll find that getting around is a breeze. One of the most common modes of transportation in London is “The Tube”. This is an underground train like the subways in New York City, that travels quickly and effectively without hitting any of London’s infamous traffic. This underground train runs from 5am to 12am most days, and there are some 24-hour lines offered. Tube stations are located throughout the city and are easy to spot. London also has an Overground train system, a Docklands Light Railway, which is an automated train that operates in certain areas of the city, and Rail Services that connect London to the Suburbs. Other modes of transportation include taxis, which can be expensive, public buses, cable cars, and more. London has excellent public transportation systems and is generally very easy to get around.

What are some things to do in the United Kingdom?

What isn’t there to do in the United Kingdom might be a better question. Depending on where you travel to in the region, there are so many things to do that it’s hard to list them all. If you’re heading to London, there is a wide mix of cultural and historical landmarks to see, as well as city must-haves including shopping, dining, pubs, and so much more. From Big Ben to the Tower of London to Westminster Abbey, there’s always something to see in the city. Hyde Park and the London Eye are also must-visit areas. For nightlife Soho is a popular area, while shopping at the famed Harrods department store is a must. If you are traveling out to smaller villages or heading to Scotland, there are endless castles and gardens to see.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to the United Kingdom?

In order for a United States citizen to travel to the United Kingdom, they will need a valid US passport. A visa is not required for travel to this region.

United Kingdom climate

The United Kingdom has a generally mild climate. Wales gets most of the rain and Scotland and northern England has the most snow in the winter. The south experiences most of the mild, dry weather and the vast majority of sunny days.

Best Time to Fly to United Kingdom

The UK is a year-round destination and travelers are eager to explore the country’s main attractions. Peak summer months are busiest, especially in London, and the major tourist centres. Summer (June to August) temperatures range between 57 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit and the rainfall varies dramatically every year.

Winter months (December to early March) can be cold (average temperatures about one-two degrees Celsius), but in general, the further north you go, the colder the weather. This is the time to visit for winter sports. Scotland has five main areas for winter sports: Nevis Range, Glencoe, Glenshee, Cairngorm and the Lecht.

Spring (March to May) and fall (September to November) can be great times to visit. The tourist season is just gearing up (or gearing down) and the weather can be sunny and warm. May and September, in particular, can enjoy very good weather.

Getting around United Kingdom

There are domestic flight options for connection between cities around the UK.

Train service network is very extensive, if expensive.

In London, the underground rail is very comprehensive and covers most of the city. Buy an Oyster card at any Tube station to get around more cheaply. Buying a ticket at the station is much more expensive than using the card. There are trams in several cities including Manchester and Sheffield. Croydon has a Tramlink and Blackpool, the resort town in Lancashire, has the UK’s only remaining “traditional” tramway.

There are several bus companies providing a more economical way to get around the UK and offer a very good service. London buses are fast and regular, linking up the capital day and night. There are good bus services in other cities around England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Postbus is a nationwide service of more than 200 routes, mostly in remote areas.

Car hire is easy. All the major companies are represented at airports and in cities around the UK.

United Kingdom Travel Information

  • The UK has a proud theater tradition. London’s West End is the largest theater district in the world. The reconstructed Shakespeare’s Globe on London’s Bankside has exhibits, educational programs, and, of course, an annual season that runs from May to October.  In Shakespeare’s Day, the cheap areas of the theater were filled by “groundlings”, theater-goers who had paid one penny to watch the performance. These tickets now can be purchased for a cheap price and are a great alternative if you don’t mind standing.  Outside London, the Minack Theatre, an open-air theater in Cornwall is celebrating its 75th anniversary season with a performance of The Tempest, the play for which the theater was created.
  • Follow the Ridgeway National Trail from Avebury, a stone circle about 5,000 years older than Stonehenge. Unlike Stonehenge, you can wander among the stones. Close to Avebury are the white horses – five large white horses – cut into the chalk downs. The Cerne Giant, in Dorset, is another giant chalk figure. Beside the sea in Cornwall is Tintagel Castle, said to be King Arthur’s birthplace.
  • Get a glimpse of the Royal Family (maybe) by visiting Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle, two of the Queen’s official residences. You may spy them at Balmoral in Scotland during the summer months, going to service at Crathie Parish Church on Sunday morning or at the Highland Games in Braemar every September.
  • London is an expensive city, but culture vultures can enjoy museums and galleries free of charge. These include the National Gallery, Royal Academy, Tate Britain and Tate Modern, the Imperial War Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Outside London there are The National Football Museum in Preston; The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead and the national museums of Scotland and Wales to name just a few.
  • Among the top seaside resorts are Whitby, Yorkshire; Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk; Frinton-on-Sea, Essex; Swanage, Dorset; and Sidmouth, Devon.
  • Trivago is a useful website for user reviews and recommendations on accommodation in the UK.
