Swapping one of Europe's cool, bohemian capitals for another is easy with Lisbon to London flights, which make the short hop over the Bay of Biscay to touchdown in the shadow of the steel-clad Shard and the Victorian rises of Big Ben. The trip is popular with holidaymakers and business travellers alike, with the industrious banking institutions of the City of London and the unforgettable sites of the Thames, the Tower and the London Eye all on the menu.
Cheap flights to London from Lisbon are usually quite easy to find in the first couple of months of the year when the cosy teahouses of Covent Garden offer the perfect escape from the winter weather. November is also a good time to book flights across to the Big Smoke, while Christmas, New Year and the summer school holiday periods will often prove the most expensive. That said, as long as you book well in advance, it’s pretty easy to bag a good deal on flights from Lisbon to London.
