London to Newcastle-upon-Tyne flights offer a quick getaway to the enthralling north of England. A city of historic grit and determination, the Geordie town is a fine example of a rejuvenated industrial centre. Where once wool works and coal mines operated, today there are bohemian microbreweries and uber-modern museums that shimmer and shine above the Tyne. With around 5 flights departing London each day, it’s easier to get to Newcastle-upon-Tyne than ever.
It's a good idea to book cheap flights to Newcastle-upon-Tyne from London sometime in the first quarter of the year, which is when average fares are around half that of later months like August, September and December. It's also wise to get in quickly with your seat purchases because the price of tickets swells gradually the closer it gets to take off, while Monday and Tuesday departures are always the most wallet-friendly choices.
Perhaps the best-connected of all London's airports is Heathrow, which is great news if you're hopping up north on London-Newcastle-upon-Tyne flights, because all the direct connections on the route leave from that major hub. There are loads of options for getting there. You could ride the comfy Heathrow Express from Paddington and do the journey in 15 minutes. Or, you could simply go all the way to the end of the Piccadilly Line on the Underground – it's cheaper and takes around an hour.
Flying from London to Newcastle-upon-Tyne means skirting up the east coast of England and the edge of the North Sea for just over an hour before touching down in the Geordie town. There's only really one option in terms of airline for the route: British Airways. The UK flag carrier offers around 5 individual departures each day, going from early morning to late evening. It also virtually always comes out cheaper than connecting flights on budget carriers like easyJet.
Because it's connected directly to the huge Tyne and Wear Metro system that runs right across the Tyne River valley, it's possible to be out of Newcastle International Airport and between the Victorian relics of Haymarket in just under 30 minutes – a tickets for the whole trip will cost £3.10 per adult. Alternatively, you could opt to ride the local bus routes, which have cheaper – and slower – links to Newcastle Ponteland and Kingston Park.
Once you've booked your cheap flights from London to Newcastle-upon-Tyne, it's time to start planning what world-class attractions you're going to put on your itinerary.
