Located along the Danube River, Budapest boasts a treasure trove of historic buildings, and you’ll simply be blown away by the architectural and geological joys of this stunning city. Wander down its boulevards and alleys to uncover baroque, neoclassical and Art Nouveau delights. If you get a stiff neck from looking at all the buildings, the city’s traditional bathhouses – fed by hot springs from the rocks deep below – will soothe away your aches and pains. This beautiful city also boasts a whole host of sophisticated restaurants serving local cuisine and, of course, that famous Magyar welcome. So make sure you book your flights from London to Budapest today.
Those wanting to book cheap London Budapest flights will find fantastic deals between November and March. Of course, the weather will be colder then. Prices start to climb in April as the Easter holidays and the Budapest Spring Festival approach, while May brings the best weather. One way to save money for your London to Budapest flights is to wait. Prices to Budapest can be at their lowest between five and six weeks before flying out.
More often than not, you’ll find that Stansted Airport (STN) is the cheapest airport to take off from for the alluring sights of Budapest. This airport is situated just off the M11 motorway, making a car journey an easy choice. Alternatively, take Greater Anglia's train service from central London, after changing from the tube at Liverpool Street or Tottenham Hale.
There are several options when booking flights from London to Budapest. In terms of prices for the 900-mile direct flight, Ryanair usually comes out on top. You’ll also find great deals with Wizz Air and easyJet, flying out of Gatwick (LGW) and Luton (LTN), respectively. You can usually expect to be in the air for two and a half hours.
Budapest Ferenc Liszt Airport (BUD) is 12 miles southwest of the city centre, and is fairly well serviced by local public transport. Catch the 200E bus from the terminal, then get off at the metro stop at Kobanya/Kipset. Here, you can take the Blue Metro (Line 3) into central Budapest. If you don’t mind paying a little bit more, the miniBUD is a convenient bus service for those travelling in small groups. It runs right to your hotel and costs about GBP 5 per person. A taxi is much steeper, at about GBP 19.
There's so much see and do here, especially when you realise that Budapest is actually two cities (Buda and Pest) united by the Danube. Buda is where you'll be able to explore the city's royal past, while you walk in the footsteps of Hungarian rulers in the Royal Palace. The views of Pest reveal that it too has architectural masterpieces, including the red-domed Parliament building. Pest is also where you can indulge in the true Hungarian pastime of sinking into the hot water pleasures of the city’s famous baths. If exploring is more your thing, take a down Andrassy Avenue, which is elegantly lined with neo-Renaissance palaces.
