Going to and from the airports

Flights from Melbourne

Once known as "Marvellous Melbourne", Victoria's state capital is now known as Australia's sporting and cultural hub. In order to get in and out of the city you'll have to go through one of its four airports. These are Melbourne Airport, Avalon Airport, Essendon Airport and Moorabbin Airport – all of which connect the city to several parts of the country.

Melbourne Airport is by far the busiest and the sole international airport serving the Melbourne Metropolitan area, meaning this is where you can catch a flight to London and other international destinations. Terminal 2 is the international terminal and features lounges and retail facilities.

Directions to Melbourne airport

Flights from Melbourne to London depart from Melbourne Airport, approximately 25 km northwest of the central business district. If you're going to be coming from the city the main airport shuttle serving this route is Skybus, which provides express shuttle services to the airport 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Shuttles also run to and from Southern Cross Station every 10 minutes. In addition to these options, you can take a local bus from Broadmeadows and Sunbury station to the airport. Grabbing a taxi is yet another good choice to get to your terminal, however Coseats provide a ride sharing service that's more affordable.

Reaching London

London is loaded with more attractions than you can fit in an itinerary, but it's always worth a try. Whitehall road is lined with many of the city's main attractions, including Westminster Abbey and Big Ben. The changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace is also definitely worth seeing.

Enjoy panoramic views of the city from the London Eye, the tallest observation wheel in Europe, or take pictures with your favourite celebrity at Madame Tussauds. If you're a fan of theatre you can get tickets to some spectacular productions for a night you'll never forget. Whether its comedies, musicals or dramas you long for, the local theatre scene is guaranteed to have it all!

Getting to the city center

Direct flights from Melbourne to London take over 22 hours and land at Heathrow Airport. The airport is located 24 km west of central London, however there are plenty of ways to get there. Heathrow Connect departs every 30 minutes to London Paddington. Heathrow Express trains can also get you there faster and run every 15 minutes.

Local buses are a great low-cost option for getting around Heathrow and going to west London and the Thames Valley. The bus station is situated between Terminals 2 and 3 and is open 24/7. If you're staying at a hotel near the airport, hotel buses are available.
