Arriving in New York City

Cheap flights to New York City depart daily from London’s Heathrow Airport and Manchester Airport. International visitors will either arrive at either Newark Liberty Airport or John F. Kennedy International Airport. On arrival in New York City, international passengers will be required to clear customs and immigration. Some British travellers may qualify for the Visa Waiver programme, which allows them to stay in the US for up to 90 days without a visa. Check with the American Embassy in London to see if you qualify before your flight to New York. There are several bureaux de change located at the airport or exchange money before leaving the UK on the high street.

Getting Around New York City

The iconic yellow cabs are New York’s answer to London’s famous black cabs. However, hopping into one may turn out to be a costly experience, especially if you get stuck in one of the city’s notorious traffic jams. Getting around on New York City’s public transport system is relatively cheap and efficient. Spend some time studying the different lines to familiarise yourself with any interchanges. Maps are available online and at most subway stations. A Metrocard is required when using the subways and buses.

Main Attractions

The Statue of Liberty, the glittering lights of Broadway, the exclusive shops along Fifth Avenue…the Big Apple is never short of sightseeing opportunities. Enjoy a stroll through Central Park, or hire a horse-drawn carriage and pretend you’re starring in a romantic comedy. Go up to the observation deck of the Empire State Building for a panoramic view of the city – it’s a breathtaking sight. Take in the latest in art at the Museum of Modern Art, catch a concert at Madison Square Garden or find out what baseball is all about at Yankee Stadium.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

A cheap flight to New York will let shopaholics indulge in their greatest passion – shopping, of course! Look for the latest in haute couture at the boutiques on Fifth Avenue, or head to the Meatpacking District for vintage and one-off finds. Shop and fill up at Chelsea Market, which houses a range of boutiques, bakeries and restaurants. Indulge in comfort food at Friedman’s Lunch, treat yourself at Fat Witch Bakery, or enjoy fine dining at Morimoto. The East Village is still the heart of New York’s alternative community. Pop into the Bowery Ballroom to catch the next big thing in music, or give your ears a rest with a trip to the distinctively shaped New Museum of Contemporary Art.
