Getting to and from the airport

Flights departing from London

London is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet and millions of travellers visit it every year. The city is served by several airports including Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted. Although these 3 are the most famous London airports, Luton is also very well known. This last one had its minute of glory thanks to a television advert for Campari and several TV series, such as Airline and Luton Airport

Flights from London to Barcelona may take off from any of the airports of London. Luton Airport, for example, is located 47 kilometres from London city centre and is known for being much farther away from the centre than London City Airport.

Getting to London airport

One of the six airports of London will be the starting point for London to Barcelona flights. If your plane takes off from Southend or Stansted, bear in mind that these airports are located in the county of Essex. You will need to start early and take a train to reach these airports. The same is the case with Luton Airport. You will need to start early and board a train. Though Heathrow and Gatwick are far away, they are connected by high speed trains. London City Airport is very close to the city of London and you will just need to take a taxi.

Arriving to Barcelona

Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and it is known for its baroque buildings and architecture. It is also an international centre of culture, history and art. Start your day at the Gothic Quarter, which houses some of the oldest and most beautiful buildings in Barcelona. Once you are done appreciating the architecture of the city, head toward Barceloneta beach, which is a great place to soak in some sun. Gracia is an interesting neighbourhood with a number of bars, cafes and restaurants. End your journey at the Montjuic garden, is very peaceful and relaxing.

How to get to the city centre

Flights to Barcelona from London do not take a significant amount of time to complete the journey. The airport of Barcelona is 12 kilometres from the city and is conveniently located. Take a Rodalies commuter train from the airport and get off at Central Barcelona. The train station is Passeig de Gracia. You can also hop on L9 Sud (Orange Line) of Barcelona Metro to reach the city centre. Take the Aerobus to reach Placa Catalunya. If you do not want to sweat it out, just take a taxi or a cab, which can be found outside the airport. However, remember that taxis are always more expensive.

It was the best experience I have flown with Vueling, there were many empty seats, they offered to take my luggage in without extra payments. It made me wonder if they do the same with full capacity though.
