Making your way to London’s Airports
London is served by five major airports, each of which fly to various Paris destinations. A bit of research will pay off, as not all “Paris” airports are created equal. Beauvais–Tillé Airport, for example, is often referred to as Paris by budget airline schedules, but is actually located a full 50 miles from the city center. Similarly, airports in “London” vary widely in accessibility, and the price of tube and train tickets to your airport can quickly add up to equal your airfare. London’s main airports are:
Heathrow (LHR)- London’s largest airport is and also the busiest in the world by passenger movements. It consists of 5 terminals. Huge range of transport options and prices. Travel time to Heathrow by train from London city center is between 20 - 45 minutes. Be aware that not all trains go to all terminals.
Gatwick (LGW)- The second busiest in London, it is split into two terminals, the North Terminal and the South Terminal. 35 - 40 minutes from London city center by train.
Stansted (STN)- London’s third-largest airport and a hub to the two biggest budget airlines, Ryanair and Easyjet. It is far from London city center, almost 38 miles, and between 45 - 60 minutes journey by train.
Luton (LTN)Small but very busy, also a hub for cheap flights. If arriving to Luton by train, a 20 to 55 minute journey, be aware that the station is not within walking distance of the airport terminal and you will have to take a shuttle (fare £1.50) which can add a further 25 minutes to your journey at peak times.
City (LCY)Small commuter airport conveniently located in London city center. Airfare may be higher than other choices, but you may find you save money in accessibility.
Arriving in Paris
This is a place where you should be led by your heart and your stomach. Take in the famous sights, but spare some time for simply wandering down cobblestone alleyways, dawdling in sidewalk cafes, and daydreaming by the banks of the Seine. And above all, eat. Fine dining is Paris can be a wallet-busting experience, so seek out lunch menus at the higher-end restaurants and keep your eyes open for prix fixe menus at small bistros, where you can dine like royalty from a set menu at a fraction of the normal price.
