Bordeaux is brimming with more than just fine wine. This jewel in south-west France is full of all the cultural flair you’d expect from the country’s fifth-biggest city, and direct flights to Bordeaux from the UK give shopaholics, sun worshippers, wine enthusiasts and foodies alike the chance to be charmed by its effortless finesse. Whether you’ve come to explore its surrounding vineyards in search of the next big vintage or to simply meander through the pretty streets of its UNESCO-listed historic centre, Bordeaux never disappoints.
Bordeaux boasts an enviable climate, and with mild to hot weather depending on the season, there’s never really a bad time to go. Spring and autumn are the best seasons to catch some cheap flights to Bordeaux while avoiding the worst of the summer heat and tourist traffic. If visits to some of the region’s stately châteaux are on your to-do list then these are also the best times for your getaway, as many of them shut their doors during the summer harvest. Hoping to catch some festivals? Book return flights to Bordeaux in June to take in the Bordeaux International Fair, Bordeaux Pride or Bordeaux Wine Festival. If a night at the city’s famed Grand Théâtre is more your style, then fly from October to December, when the opera season really kicks into gear.
Bagging cheap tickets to Bordeaux is a cinch with so many low-cost air carriers on hand to get you there. Hoping to fly direct? EasyJet zips to Bordeaux’s Merignac International Airport from London Luton and London Gatwick airports. British Airways also operates non-stop flights from Gatwick, and Flybe takes off from Birmingham and Southampton. Ryanair flies from London Stansted and also caters for Scottish travellers with a route from Edinburgh.
Bordeaux Merignac International Airport is about eight miles west of central Bordeaux. If you’re eager to get started on your Bordeaux adventure, it’s only a 25-minute journey via taxi. Fares are usually around €30. For a cheaper airport transfer, look no further than the airport shuttle bus, which takes passengers to Bordeaux’s central train station in around 30 minutes and from only €7.20.
The wine never stops flowing in the city of Bordeaux. With over 120,000 hectares of vineyards, one of the region’s many wine tours is an absolute must for those who like a sip or two. Aside from enjoying Bordeaux in all its “winery”, the city has a host of exciting sightseeing activities for you to get stuck into. The city’s Miroir d’eau, the world’s largest reflecting pool, is splashed across 3,450 square metres of black granite on the quayside opposite the imposing Palais de la Bourse. The effect, like the city itself, is truly mesmerising.
