Your flight from London to Tirana

Like all savvy travellers, you know the holiday starts before you leave home. You’ve got to make it to the airport on time, prepare yourself for what could be a long flight, and wear some comfy clothes.

A non-stop flight from London (all London airports) to Tirana, Albania, is 3 hours. There are indirect flights but they're not ideal if you're only spending 3 days in Tirana as they take upwards of 10 hours. Add to this the fact Tirana is 1 ahead of the UK, and it makes sense to book direct flights to Albania from London.

Whatever flight you book, make sure you factor in the airport arrival time into your travel plans. It's best to get to a London airport three hours before an international flight, but also consider the airport size: London Heathrow is a much larger airport than London Stansted, for example. You might need to arrive earlier if you’re using Heathrow or Gatwick at peak times.

Here is a tip for you to make it easier to plan your holiday: next time book a hotel in Tirana or book a hotel or flight + hotel in London if you have an early flight, a stepover or multi-city flight. If you book your flight + hotel together you can save up to 40% when compared to booking separately and all that's left for you to do is relax and enjoy your trip!

What to do in Tirana

The rapidly modernising Tirana is the capital of Albania. The country's largest city is full of rich history and culture ready to be explored. If that wasn't enough, the city has some incredibly picturesque views that you can experience in a single weekend.

The stunning central plaza, Skanderbeg Square, is a hub of activity, where tourists and locals alike gather to gather their bearings, meet up, or just admire the scenery.

To learn more about Tirana, and Albania’s dark but fascinating history, you can visit the House of Leaves, otherwise known as the museum of secret surveillance, as it was the headquarters of the infamous Sigurimi, who spied on Albanian citizens. There is also the Bunk'Art, a massive, five story nuclear bunker designed to hold the old communist government in case of war. To learn more about the man who was Albania’s dictator for 50 years until 1944, you can visit Piramida, a museum dedicated to dictator Enver Hoxha and his legacy.

To enjoy some less dark Albanian culture, head to one of Tirana’s many revolving street markets or the modern bazaar Pazari i Ri for some traditional Albanian cuisine. Tirana is also a great location to explore Albania’s beautiful landscapes as it sits in the shadows of mountains to the east and the Adriatic Sea to the northwest.

Consider a relaxing cable car ride up Mount Dajti to look out at the city and its stunning coastline below. If you're not the biggest fan of heights you can marvel at the Pyramid of Tirana instead, explore the wonders of Dajti Mountain National Park or take a stroll around Grand Park.
