Peak season:

London is pretty much a year-round destination, which means that there isn’t a good or a bad time to book your flight tickets. Between June and September, during London’s summer months, the majority of tourists flock to this city, which means that flight prices might be at their highest during these months. Other festive periods such as Christmas, New Years, and Easter are also buzzing times for London. You should be able to find cheap flights to London with a bit of planning though

 

Off season:

By visiting London between April and May, you might be able to enjoy a quieter holiday in London, although the city seems to never (entirely) go to sleep. September and October are also quieter months on the London tourism scene, which means that this can be a brilliant time to pick up some cheap flight deals to London. Whether you’re planning a peak-or-off season visit to London, it’s essential to book your flight tickets are far along in advance as possible to avoid overpaying for last-minute bookings.

How to get from the airport to the city center?

 

Heathrow is one of the major airports where a lot of South African travelers will touch down after taking a cheap flight to London.  Getting downtown from Heathrow can be done via the underground (tube), but the trip takes up to an hour. Alternatively, you can make use of the Heathrow Express trains, which take a mere 15 minutes to get to the city center.

 

If you’re scheduled to arrive at the Gatwick Airport, you can take a 30-minute train ride to the city center, using the Gatwick Express trains, the fastest and easiest option for tourists to use. There are also metered taxis available at all the major airports, but these might be your most expensive option when trying to get to the city center from the airport.

 

Travelers arriving at the Stansted Airport, you’ll have to make your way some 45 kilometers northeast of London’s city center. This can be done with a 45-minute train ride on board the Stansted Express. Alternatively, you can also make use of the shuttle buses, which are cheaper but take a lot longer to reach the city center.
