Cheap Flights to Heathrow

See all departure points

English writer Dr Samuel Johnson once said, “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life”. It’s easy to see what he meant when visiting the vibrant, multicultural and eclectic capital of the United Kingdom.

There is simply so much to see and do in this iconic city that it’s difficult to know where to start. With cheap flights to the British city available throughout the year, London is  an accessible and affordable holiday choice. Culture vultures will enjoy exploring the wide range of art galleries and museums, and lovers of modern art should head to the South Bank to enjoy the displays at the Tate Modern, followed by a leisurely lunch overlooking the River Thames.

Other museums worth visiting include The British Museum, Natural History Museum and the Science Museum, which are great for those travelling with children. Many museums offer free entrance with donation boxes for discretionary contributions.

For those more interested in sightseeing, there are plenty of options in London. Booking a tour on an open-top bus is a great way of getting your bearings before finalising your list of things to do. Sights not to be missed include Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, The Tower of London and, for those interested in architecture and spectacular views, The Shard, London’s newest landmark and the tallest building in Western Europe.

Food-wise, London is a treasure trove of gastronomic delights. From Michelin-starred restaurants in Mayfair to authentic Indian eateries along East London’s Brick Lane, you’re sure to find something to suit your taste buds and your bank account.

After dinner, why not take in a show in the West End or put on your dancing shoes? Visit vibrant Soho where you’ll find a variety of bars, nightclubs and traditional English pubs where you can soak up the atmosphere and plan the next day’s adventures.

With flights to London’s main airports, Gatwick and Heathrow, departing daily from cities across Canada, there’s never been a better time to plan your trip to one of Europe’s most exciting cities.

Airport Overview

London Heathrow Airport (LHR) is the busiest airport in the United Kingdom, and the fourth-busiest in the world, in terms of passenger traffic. However, Heathrow has the distinction of handling more international passengers than any other airport in the world – a testament to its importance as a transit-point for intercontinental travel.

Flights to Heathrow Airport are provided by an incredible 90 airlines, serving 180 destinations worldwide. Heathrow is home-base for British Airways, which operate direct and indirect flights to basically every major city you can think of, from Heathrow's beautiful, new Terminal 5 building.

London – a compelling, cosmopolitan city – certainly has an appropriate gateway in Heathrow Airport: a highly modern, convenient hub that is truly geared toward providing the best possible experience to travellers. Located 15 miles (24km) from central London, there are plenty of easy, hassle-free transport options available to travellers looking to get downtown. The flocks of tourists, who are no doubt going to descend on London for the 2012 Olympic Games, can look forward to a warm welcome and efficient service.
