To and from the airports

Flights from Barcelona

Barcelona is the capital of Catalan region of Spain, and is an international center of culture and fashion. Barcelona El-Prat Airport is located 12 kilometers from the city center and is the principal airport of Barcelona. Barcelona-El Prat Airport is among the busiest airports of the world.

Flights to London from Barcelona take off from Barcelona-El Prat Airport, which is one of the oldest airports in Europe. It has remained functional since 1918 and was the point from which the first commercial flight to Madrid took off in 1927. Barcelona-El Prat Airport has 2 terminals and its Terminal 1 is the 5th largest airport in the world.

Getting to Barcelona airport

To fly from Barcelona to London, you will have to arrive at Barcelona-El Prat Airport in time. From the city center, it is easy to reach the airport on commuter trains and buses. Take a Rodalies commuter train at Passeig de Gracia station in the heart of Barcelona, and get off at Terminal 2 Station. If you wish to travel by Barcelona Metro, hop on the L9 Sud (orange line). The metro stops at stations outside both Terminals 1 and 2. If you are around Placa Catalunya, Aerobus' direct transfers to Terminals 1 and 2 are a great way to reach the airport in time.

Getting to London

While London is one of the most happening and interesting cities on the planet, it also has many offbeat museums, quaint pubs and medieval streets to explore. If you have finished visiting the more popular museums such as Tate, the British Museum and the Science Museum, you could probably explore the Hunterian Museum. This museum exhibits macabre objects such as body parts in jars, which is not surprising as it is managed by the Royal College of Surgeons. Take a walk around the cobbled streets of Central London, which haven't changed much since medieval times. After dark, head toward Paddington and walk into the Victoria pub, and order black pudding with beer.

Arriving to the city centre

Flights from BCN to London may land at any of its six major airports. If you land at Heathrow, take the Heathrow Express to reach Paddington Station in just 15 minutes. Landing at Gatwick shouldn't be a problem either. Get on Gatwick Express to reach Victoria Station in less than half an hour. To get to Central London from Luton Airport, train journey may last around 40 minutes. Stansted and Southend airports are located in Sussex and are around 50 minutes away from Liverpool Street. If you land at London City Airport, consider yourself lucky as it is already within city limits. Taxis can be hailed from all the six airports.
