The metropolis is home to some of the most interesting museums and art galleries in the world and most of them are free to explore. London has five major airports which cater for domestic, regional and international flights.

London Heathrow Airport is considered the busiest of all the airports, while London Gatwick Airport comes a close second. However, this doesn't mean that flights from Heathrow to Reykjavik are expensive or difficult to book.

Getting to London airport

You can go for a cheaper flight when you choose an airport other than Heathrow. Flights from London Luton or London Gatwick to Reykjavik are somewhat economical due to availability of low-cost carriers flying from these airports. Getting to these airports from the city is no stress at all.

You can take advantage of public transport services, such as a coach or the underground, for transportation to the airport. EasyBus Gatwick Airport transfers can transport you to the airport entrance from Central London or you could take the Gatwick Express train from London Victoria to the airport. From Luton Airport, a National Express coach departs from airport bays outside the terminal to Central London.
