Travelling to and from the airports

Flights from London

London attracts millions of visitors annually and is served by five main airports that - alongside other smaller airports in the city - make one of the busiest airport networks in the world. Each airport is strategically situated around the city to serve the different areas and surrounding regions. London to Budapest flights could leave from any of the five major airports: Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton or London City. The largest is Heathrow with five terminals. Gatwick is the second busiest. Luton and Stansted are served mainly by no-frills airlines and London City is the smallest and primarily used by business travellers.

Travel to London airport

Each of London's five major airports operate flights from London to Budapest. Trains run to each of the airports from the city centre. For Heathrow, you can take the Heathrow Express from Paddington Station (15-20 minutes) or the Piccadilly Line from the centre (about 40 minutes). For Gatwick Airport, take either the Gatwick Express or Thameslink train services from London Victoria. Passengers heading to Luton can take the train from St Pancras to Luton Airport Parkway station (about 35 minutes) and catch a shuttle bus for the final leg of the journey (10 minutes). For Stansted take the direct train from Liverpool Street station. London City Airport is in the city centre on the DLR.

Arriving in Budapest

Budapest is a mesmerising blend of old-fashioned elegance and forward thinking culture. Visitors will be spellbound by the neo-Renaissance architecture of the Opera House, the romantic Danube River and the charming historic quarter. On the Pest waterfront you can visit the imposing Hungarian Parliament before crossing the iconic Chain Bridge to visit the Royal Palace, Castle Hill and the Fisherman's Bastion. No visit to Budapest could be considered complete without experiencing the neoclassical Széchenyi Thermal Bath and Swimming Pool which is one of the biggest spas in Europe, built in 1913. The city is filled with trendy and fun restaurant and bar options in which to while away an evening.

Travelling to the city centre

London to Budapest flights arrive into Budapest Airport, located about 14 miles from the city centre. If you plan to drive, there is a high-speed motorway that connects the airport to the city. By public transport, you can take the miniBUD airport shuttle bus which runs to and from the airport. The airport is also served by the 200E bus service, which runs between Terminal 2 and the K?bánya-Kispest metro terminal and connects with the metro line M3. There is also a train station in nearby Ferihegy, connected to the airport by the 200E bus service. From there you can get the train to Nyugati train station, one of Budapest's main railway stations.
