There is more to the United Kingdom than London! Visit Scotland, Wales, Cornwall and Devon and explore different parts of the UK. Travellers on flights to the United Kingdom generally arrive at London's Heathrow and Gatwick international airports. London is a major European air travel hub and United Kingdom flights arrive in London from all continents. Most visitors to the UK head to London first but there is a lot more to discover in one of the biggest countries in Europe, although London makes a good starting point. Most budget airlines in Europe offer cheap flights to the United Kingdom. An easy way to find a cheap airfare to the United Kingdom is to fly to Stansted or Luton, smaller airports just outside London.
Although London is the international air travel hub, many other UK cities have their own airports. Edinburgh in Scotland and Manchester in Northwest England are some of the biggest. The train network in the UK is extensive and connects all the cities and towns, and nearly all small towns and villages have a railway station. Most cities have good bus services and there are also long-distance buses and coaches that travel between the main cities around the country. Hiring a car is another good way to explore the UK independently.
Most first-time visitors to the UK start by exploring London's tourist attractions, shopping and night life, but there is a lot to see and do outside London. Airfare to the UK opens up a world of possibilities. The Lake District is a picturesque area that is famous for outdoor activities from hiking to fishing. The English coastline in Devon and Cornwall has many beautiful beaches. Cornwall in Southwest England is famous for its small coves, old fishing villages and coastal walking paths. Devon's beaches are very popular with families on summer holidays. The countryside in Wales is known for its beauty, and Scotland's unique scenery and interesting culture attract visitors from around the world.
Saving on cheap airfare to the UK attracts visitors from around the world for the nightlife and good shopping, and not just in London. Some cities famous for their nightlife include Brighton (on England's South Coast), Manchester and Edinburgh. Brighton is especially famous for its clubs and bars, and Manchester's clubs rival those in London. In most cities, in towns and even in the smallest villages, the local pub is the most popular way to spend a night out. It would be difficult to visit the UK without ending up in a pub at least once.
