Terminal Information – Departing
Belfast-City Airport has one terminal, with a good range of places to grab refreshment: enjoy a sandwich at O’Briens Irish Sandwich Bar, have something more substantial at Harvest Market, or settle in with a coffee and a paperback at Costa. If you feel like shopping, the terminal has the usual suspects (World Duty Free and WHSmith), as well as the upmarket House of Ireland where you can pick up some last minute souvenirs.
If you’re flying from Belfast International you will find plenty of high street brands in the departure lounge. Grab a coffee at Starbucks, pick up some travel essentials at Superdrug, and pick up some gifts at the duty free shop. If you prefer a bit of peace and quiet you can book into the business lounge, available from two hours before your flight is due to depart.
Terminal Information – Arriving
London-City only has one terminal, making it easy to navigate and find your way into the city. The airport has its own DLR station, which connects to the London Underground.
At Gatwick Airport Aer Lingus land at the South Terminal, while easyJet lands at the north. Buses are available from both terminals, and the Gatwick Express train can be caught from the station in the South Terminal. If you’re flying with easyJet you will need to take the inter-terminal shuttle to reach the South Terminal.
Flights to Heathrow generally land at Terminal 5. The Heathrow Express and Piccadilly Line on the Underground both serve this terminal.
Luton Airport only has one terminal, as does London Stansted. When you land you just need to follow signs outside to reach the bus stops and taxi ranks. From Stansted you can reach London using the Stansted Express train, which is a lot less expensive if you book your train ticket in advance.
You don’t need your passport to travel to London from Belfast; an official piece of photographic ID, such as your driving license, will suffice. We recommend arriving at the airport at least 90 minutes before your flight departs. Leave a little extra time during the school holidays and at the weekend, as security queues can often be a lot longer.
What to expect in London

There are bargains to be found, of course: just check out our guide to London’s budget hotels. The weather in London is likely to be a bit warmer, especially during the summer. You might want to nip into Boots and pick up a small bottle of sunscreen!
