Key info for a London to Nice flight

With an average flight time between 2 hours and 2 hours and 15 minutes, you can easily hop onto a direct flight from any of London's various airports to Nice.

As with any other international flight, the protocol when flying from an airport in and around the capital city is to arrive at least two hours before you fly. It's worth keeping in mind that London’s underground and overground train services are reliable and plentiful, but also see very similar rush hour times. Unless you only live a few stops away from any of the London airports, you’ll want to account for any blockers to ensure that you get to the airport two hours before your flight.

When you land in Nice, while your phone will likely adjust automatically, you’ll need to turn your watch forward an hour to match the local time zone in France.

Here is a tip for you to make it easier to plan your holiday: next time book a hotel or flight + hotel in Nice or book a hotel or flight + hotel in London if you have an early flight, a stepover or multi-city flight.

When is the best time to fly to Nice?

If you're wanting to make the most of the incredible weather, stunning scenery, and numerous cultural events on offer, the best time to fly to Nice is arguably during the summer months of July and August. You'll have the opportunity to witness the Bastille Day festivities firsthand, immense running events like the Ultra-Trail Côte d'Azur Mercantour, which sees participants embark on a 93 mile race through the iconic French Riviera landscape, as well as jazz and wine festivals galore.

However, if you’re hoping to dodge the heavy tourist crowds and aim for a cheaper deal, you’ll have better luck booking tickets for November when the demand for flights is lower. The weather won’t be as sunny, but there will still be plenty of indoor activities to make the most of your trip. Generally, booking trips during the spring and autumn months can get you better deals while still catching some of the milder weather.

What to do in Nice

Perfectly situated on the French Riviera, the majority of Nice-goers will be eyeing up long days soaking their toes in the Mediterranean. Of the many beach sites, you’ll likely gravitate towards the sandy bay of Plage des Marinières or, for a more sporting visit, check out La Plage d’Eze.

Within Nice, culture-seekers will be spoiled for choice. There’s the Musée d’Art Moderne et d’Art Contemporain for everything modern and pop art at just €10 (£8.50) per ticket, as well as the Musée Matisse. If you can hack the climb, Parc de la Colline du Château offers stunning views of the city and sea.

Another spot worth adding to your sightseeing plans is the city’s Old Town district. Vieux Nice is full of beautiful and historical architecture including the Baroque Sainte Reparate Cathedral. The Old Port also dates back to the 1700s and is lined with bright and colourful buildings.

Of course, you’ll also be fixing for some of that famous French cuisine while on the Riviera. Afterward, you can’t go wrong exploring the 16 microbreweries at 1 Place Philippe Randon.

Alternatively, you might be one of many tourists who are actually aspiring to make the journey from London to Antibes via Nice Côte d’Azur Airport. Just 20 minutes away from Nice's city centre, via a Nice-Ville train, Antibes boasts ruins and remnants in the old town as well as contemporary gems like ports filled with luxury yachts. Not only this but a bit further down the coast, you can get to the world-famous Cannes in 40 minutes. To the north is Monaco, which is only a 30-minute train away via Nice-Ville.
