London England

Guide to Low-cost Travel and Inexpensive Vacations

London England is widely known as one of the most expensive cities in the world.  Consequently, a low-cost visit to London must be carefully planned.

Because most charter flights from North America arrive at Gatwick Airport which is located south of London, it is often preferable to find initial accommodation in Kent, rather than trying to find a hotel in the heart of London.

One option is to stay in a seaside town such as Folkestone and then purchase single-day return rail tickets into London. Folkestone, is a lovely little English town that is relatively inexpensive (outside the summer months).

From Folkestone, it is possible to bus to Dover (i.e. the ferry terminal to Europe), Canterbury and other places of interest in Kent.

Many of the low-cost air carriers use London area airports such as Stansted, Luton and Gatwick.  Heathrow Airport handles most business travel.
