A lot of low cost companies provide air fare to London. One good way to find cheap flights is to check Skyscanner web site for comparison. Otherwise, you can directly have a look at British Airways, Easyjet, Ryan Air. Allow some time to go from airport to town – typically 1 to 1.5 hours by train (or tube if you land at Heathrow).

 

Travelling by train

If you are coming from Lille or Paris, Brussels or some other cities in Europe, a quick hop on the Eurostar might be your best option to travel.

Remember, the earlier you book, the cheaper it often is!
