Flights To London

Walking along the River Thames, the Old Globe just a stone’s throw away, you’re overtaken by a sense of possibility. You’re reminded of Samuel Johnson’s famous observation: “Sire, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.” Yes, you think, no matter what your life’s ambitions are, they can surely come to fruition here. Steeped in history and constantly abuzz, London is more than just the “Big Smoke.” It’s also a hub of government, international food, and retail therapy. The world is a stage, and London is your stage left.

Book a flight to London on Travelocity today, and soon you’ll be listening to the famed chimes of Big Ben and stopping for afternoon tea. If you’ve left your heart in San Francisco, you’ll find it again in the capital of England.

Transportation from LHR

Most international London flights land at Heathrow Airport (LHR), though the city has many other airports, as well. If your travels take you elsewhere in Europe, Gatwick, Luton, and Stanstead airports can get you there. Once you’re wheels down at LHR, you’re about 20 miles from the center of London. The fastest way to the center of the city is the Heathrow Express, which is just a 15-minute ride between the airport and Paddington Station.

The Tube, or London Underground, offers a more-cost effective route that takes about an hour. You can also hop into a famous London black cab travel from the terminals to anywhere in the city. If you want a stylish first-class ride, book a chauffeur service. If you dare to drive on the “wrong” side of the road and want to explore the English countryside outside London on your own schedule, rent a car when you book your plane tickets to London.

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to London

Make your flight to London a little easier by following these helpful tips and pointers:

  • Ensure your boarding pass and travel ID are not hard to access. You'll need to present them straightaway.
  • It's useful to know that metal belt buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you're wearing one, you may be told to step back and remove it before moving forward.
  • Make sure your electronic devices and laptop are easily accessible. These items need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately.
  • When you get to the security checkpoint, you'll be asked to place all creams, gels and liquids in a separate bin for inspection. Make sure they're all packed in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and sealed in a clear zip-lock bag.
  • Give some thought to your choice of footwear. Slippers are awesome because they're a cinch to remove when you're doing the airport security checks. Try wearing a pair on your next journey!
  • The list of non-permissible items is forever updating. Check with your airline's official website to find out what is not allowed on board their aircraft.
