England’s capital city, London, is served by five major international airports; Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton and London City Airport. There are also international airports in Birmingham, Manchester, East Midlands, LeedsBradford, Liverpool, NewcastleGateshead, Bristol and Norwich, meaning that any part of England is easily within an hour’s drive of an international airport.

Distances are small in England making the country remarkably quick and easy to navigate. All major English destinations are within a couple of hours travelling distance from London. Train travel into England has never been better with a new high speed Eurostar link from the European Continent serving both Ashford in Kent and London’s St Pancras station.  

There are also numerous direct ferry connections from many cities across the European Continent.
