Cheap Flights from London-Gatwick to Toronto Pearson
London and Toronto are cultural melting pots. They're also the largest cities of their respective nations. And yet, that's pretty much where the commonalities end. Nonetheless, a well-planned trip to Toronto can be a wonderful escape for the entire family. Considered the "New York of Canada", Toronto anchors the Golden Horseshoe region that wraps around Lake Ontario and Niagara Falls. From museums to iconic landmarks to festivals galore, Toronto caters to everyone.
Arriving at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ)
Flying into Toronto at night can cause a jaw-dropping effect as the skyline lights up the sky, punctuated by the iconic CN Tower. Daytime flights have a similar, although, more exciting effect as more landmarks and activities are seen by the naked eye. Regardless of when your flight arrives, it's hard not to get swept away by Toronto's energy. Flights from London Gatwick usually arrive at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ).
The 8-hour flight ends at a bright and architecturally impressive structure that handles the needs of over 44 million passengers annually via almost 500,000 flights. YYZ has two active terminals, and it's the hub for approximately 50 aircraft carriers. Amenities include shopping and eateries, free WIFI, prayer rooms in both terminals, a gym and manicurist on T1, and museum-quality art exhibits within both terminals.
Located 22.5 km from downtown, transportation options at YYZ are plentiful. Information booths at both terminals can direct passengers to shuttle and bus stops. Many local hotels offer shuttle services to overnight guests. The UP Express train leaves YYZ every 15 minutes. Taxis and limousines await passengers outside of both terminals. Be prepared to budget around C$55 (£31) for a cab ride into town. And car rental agencies are found on level 1 of the parking garages.
Things to Do in Toronto
Toronto is a cultural lover's paradise with free world renown museums such as Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) and Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). Tour Casa Loma to see Toronto's version of a castle. Stroll the 10-acre delight of Harbourfront Centre. Relax on Sugar Beach, unleash your inner virtuoso at Toronto Music Garden, and tour the CN Tower. Kensington Market and St. Lawrence Market are must-sees for shopping enthusiasts. The Distillery District is a one-stop-shop for foodies and beer lovers. And if you're up for some real nightlife fun, head over to Dundas Square, Toronto's version of Piccadilly Circus.
Toronto Travel Tips
Toronto weather is mild compared to other parts of Canada, but winter can still be brutal. Summer is peak tourist season as it becomes a mecca for festival lovers. Toronto is a safe city, but avoid traveling alone after dark. Bike couriers are fast and rarely watch where they're going. Keep your packages and your body parts intact by avoiding them. And be sure to check with Skyscanner to secure the best deal for your Toronto vacation.
