Belfast is a city with a whole host of attractions to suit all tastes. The city’s famous and sumptuous Victorian hotels and ultramodern dockside museums are the best places to start on your London to Belfast trip. But the most iconic attraction in this fantastic city are the magnificent docklands, the birthplace of the famous Titanic.
Belfast is one those cities where the cost to fly out doesn't change so much with the seasons – except for inevitable peaks around Easter and Christmas – as the weather never really gets too hot or too cold. January and late November are the best times to find those amazing bargains on London Belfast flights. Another clever trick for cheap flights is to book no later than 7-8 weeks before your departure date. Don’t forget to book your travel plans for a Monday morning for a double whammy of savings.
The best London airports to travel to Belfast from, price-wise, are Luton (LTN) and Stansted (STN). There are regular trains to Luton Airport from St Pancras Station via the Thameslink service, as well as frequent National Express coaches. Of course, you can drive also the same 30 miles north by car, before parking at the airport. Once at Luton, finding your flight is easy as Luton only has one terminal.
One reason why flying from Luton is cheaper is because it's just that little bit closer to Belfast. That means London Belfast flights take just over an hour. easyJet is the cheapest carrier around, but you can often get a good deal with Ryanair from Gatwick (LGW) to Belfast International Airport (BFS).
Belfast International Airport lies 14 miles northwest of the capital, on the shores of Lough Neagh. The 300 Airport bus trundles into the city every half hour, and takes just 45 minutes and costs GBP 7 for a single ticket. The slower and more scenic route is to catch the Ulsterbus 109A into Antrim, and then taking the train to Belfast's Great Victoria Street station. The combined cost for the bus and train is around GBP 7. Alternatively, a taxi will set you back up to GBP 30.
There is one thing that is guaranteed on your visit to Belfast, you won’t be short of historical attractions. You can see part of it when cruising around Belfast's iconic docks, where the Titanic first roared off the slipways. You can also feel the history in the powerfully historic murals that still plaster the city's neighbourhoods. Nothing says more about how firmly Belfast has put the past in its place than the sweeping magnificence of Stormont Parliament – where former rivals now debate Northern Ireland's glowing future – or the hipster bars of the University Quarter, where young people now debate over the finer points and recipes of craft beer.
