Find the cheapest flight to England
No matter where you begin your journey, chances are very good that if you are flying to England that means you are flying to London. Sure, there are plenty of other airports in the United Kingdom’s biggest home nation, but London’s airports seem to have some kind of magnetic force pulling nearly every flight in their direction. It doesn’t hurt that London’s Heathrow Airport is the third busiest airport in the entire world, but there are a total of five airports in and around England’s capital – if you can’t find a flight to London, there’s something wrong with your search methods.
Finding a cheap flight, however, might be more tricky – especially if you’re looking to end up somewhere other than London in the end. You might find a cheap direct flight to one of England’s other airports, but don’t discount the possibility that flying into London and then finding a dirt-cheap flight on one of the UK’s many budget carriers is the best deal. You can research cheap flights within England on the Europe Cheap Ticket Links site, and don’t forget to learn more about London’s main airports.
Outside London’s airports, the busiest airport in England is in Manchester. Manchester Airport (airport code MAN) is the fourth busiest airport in the UK, and it serves as a secondary hub for British Airways, Virgin Atlantic Airways and Pakistan International Airlines.

More Information on England
England is the largest of the United Kingdom’s “home nations” and boasts one of the most visited cities on the planet: London. A visit to England might not be complete without visits to London, historical Bath, Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon, the university cities of Oxford and Cambridge, the Beatles’ birthplace of Liverpool… The list could (and does) go on and on. The fact is that it’s impossible to see all of England in one go. It’s also a fact that you’ll want to get off the beaten tourist path at some point during your trip, lest you be caught up in the vast herds that shuffle from attraction to attraction. The good news is that it’s possible to almost literally stumble upon castles in areas where no one goes, and walking wherever you’d like through the countryside is encouraged. You’ll find steps and gates even through pastures – watch your step, and you’ll have a great stroll.
