Travelling to and from the airports

Flights from London

It is not possible to see all of London in one visit, but you can certainly pack in a lot. From superb museums to a kaleidoscopic choice of arts, millions of visitors are drawn to London each year to experience all that it has to offer. The city has five major airports: Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and London City, which together make one of the busiest airport networks in the world. Flights from London to Madrid may leave from any of them. Heathrow is the largest, handling flights to around 185 destinations worldwide. Gatwick is second largest. Luton and Stansted operate primarily low-cost flights, while London City is the smallest of the five.

Travel to London airport

Madrid flights from London may leave from either Heathrow (west), Gatwick (south), Stansted (north east), Luton (north west) or London City (centre) airports. To arrive at Heathrow, you can take the Heathrow Express train service from Paddington Station (about 15-20 minutes) or the Piccadilly Line from the centre (about 40 minutes). Gatwick is served by the Gatwick Express or Thameslink train from London Victoria. For Stansted, take the train from Liverpool Street train station (about 40 minutes), while Luton can be reached via a train from St Pancras International Station to Luton Airport Parkway (about 35 minutes) and then a shuttle bus to the terminal (10 minutes). London City Airport is on the DLR.

Arriving in Madrid

Madrid offers an intoxicating blend of attractions, from bustling tapas bars and energetic nightlife to world-class galleries and stately monuments. The city's three main art galleries, Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza, combined house some of the world's most prized art collections, including works by El Greco, Goya, Picasso and Caravaggio. Afterwards, you can catch your breath by whiling away a few hours in the landscaped gardens of the nearby Buen Retiro Park. Madrid is a city that loves to indulge, with around the clock eateries and busy bars full of locals chatting and drinking over an endless array of tapas and diverse cuisine.

Travelling to the city centre

London to Madrid flights will arrive into Madrid-Barajas Airport, situated about seven miles from the city centre close to the M40, M11, A1, A2 and R2 motorways. The airport has four terminals, all of which are served by the metro line 8 from the city centre. There is also a local Renfe train service connecting Terminal 4 with the city centre on the "Cercanías" C1 line. Terminals 1, 2 and 3 have a shuttle bus that links to Terminal 4. There is also the express bus service line 203, which runs from the airport to the Atocha train station in the city centre. Bus line 200 runs to the Avenida de América.
