London is a popular destination for Canadians and an absolute must-visit, with enough attractions, food, entertainment and shopping to keep any visitor occupied for weeks.
One of the most appealing aspects of London is its close proximity to the rest of Europe. Hop on a train and within a couple of hours you can reach other popular parts of England and Scotland – and even Paris, Amsterdam and beyond. Budget airlines like Ryan Air and EasyJet also offer cheap flights to mainland Europe from London.
Here’s what’s considered to be a good deal compared to the average cost of a flight from Canada to London.
Most flights from Canada to London will land at either London Heathrow (LHR) or London Gatwick (LGW). Heathrow is around 25km from the city, while Gatwick is around 45 km south of the city. A taxi ride can take up to over an hour and can cost around £50-100 depending on the time of day and the airport you’re arriving at.
If you’re flying into Heathrow, the fastest option for reaching the city is the Heathrow Express which gets passengers to London Paddington in 15 minutes – it’s not cheap although savings can be made by booking in advance online. The Underground is more budget-friendly and has the advantage of connecting you to its huge network, including Kings Cross and Euston stations for trains to the rest of the UK. Those travelling further afield should take a look at National Express, which offers coach travel to London itself and other UK cities for bargain prices.
Some flights may get you into London Gatwick (LGW) which also has National Express coach services to London (Victoria) taking up to two hours. Alternatively, there’s a budget coach transfer company called easyBus. Gatwick is better connected by train than Heathrow with services to Victoria and other parts of London, including Luton Airport.
