The quickest choice
Flying is a great time-saving alternative to road or rail when it comes to travelling around Britain. Domestic flights are fast and frequent and there are airports across Britain operating domestic routes.
To plan your journey across Britain by flight, use the VisitBritain journey planner.
These routes are often operated by budget airlines like easyJet, Ryanair, Flybe and bmibaby and you can sometimes find flights that are cheaper than long-distance rail fares. Remember that check-in times and airport security will add to your total journey time.
Flying is particularly useful if you want to reach the more remote parts of Scotland, the Scottish Islands and places like the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.
