With a flying time of just one hour, there’s no excuse not to visit the bustling and buzzing metropolis that is London. A number of airlines offer cheap flights from London to Dublin several times every day, including Aer Lingus, British Airways, CityJet and Air France. If you’re trying to save a little to enjoy the endless number of attractions at your destination, low-cost airline, Ryanair, is also ready to whoosh you from Dublin to London with regular flights to Stansted and Luton Airports.
London has something for everyone all year round. As the sun shines in the spring and summer, head to Hyde Park for peaceful and tranquil walks; in autumn, duck out of the rain and head to one of the capital’s eye-opening museums, such as the V&A, the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum and many more. In winter, stroll along Regent Street and Oxford Street for some retail therapy as you admire the bright lights of the holiday season. As for booking your flights, with so many airlines to choose from, there are plenty of deals up for grabs. Cheap flights from Dublin to London are often easier to find during the week, and prices start to climb on Fridays. Prices are also usually higher around school holidays, but good deals are easy to find in February and November.
Getting to Dublin Airport is easy. Hop on the AirLink 747 bus service in Temple Bar, O’Connell Street or Heuston Station, and you’ll be there in less than one hour for only €12 for an open return. Taxis are more expensive at around €30 but will get you there much quicker, usually around 20 minutes from central Dublin. If you live locally and want to drive to the airport, lots of long-stay parking is available. Once at the airport, the two terminals are easy to navigate and have everything you need before your flight to London.
As well as being spoiled for choice with the selection of airlines, London has five main airports for your flight from Dublin to London: City, Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton. All of the airports are served by regular trains to Central London. The Heathrow Express takes you to the centre in around 15 minutes, while trains from Gatwick take around 30 minutes. City Airport is right in the heart of London, but flights can be costlier. Luton and Stansted are furthest out of the city and trains from each airport last around 45 minutes to central London, but Luton and Stansted often have the best deals on offer for cheap flights from Dublin to London.
Once in London, you will never be bored. This spellbinding city has a little something for everyone, whether you’re travelling with friends or family. From the selection of theatre shows in the West End to the beautiful parks away from the hustle and bustle, to the world-class shopping in some of the world’s finest and most unique department stores, London is simply the place to be.
