Situated around 984 miles apart, taking the plane is the fastest and most convenient option for traveling from London to Lisbon. Regular flights depart from Gatwick and Heathrow airport in London and arrive at Lisbon airport within 3 hours, dependent upon whether the flight is direct or containing stops. Gatwick and Heathrow are both easily accessible, only adding to the convenience of this form of travel. The Heathrow express train departs from Paddington and arrives at Heathrow, whereas the Gatwick express train departs from Victoria in central London and arrives at Gatwick. Both trains offer continuous departures throughout the day.
Vueling, KLM, Iberia, Austrian, Air France and Alitalia all offer one-stop flights, which make stops in a variety of connecting cities including Amsterdam and Paris, in order to break down the length of each flight. All of these airlines offer a large selection of flights that depart daily, sometimes less than an hour apart, that take anywhere from 6 to 12 hours to arrive in Lisbon. However, for those who prefer a direct flight, a journey with TapPortugal will take no more than 3 hours, with around 8 flights each day departing at 2-hour intervals.
Taking the bus from London to Lisbon, although possible, is a long journey. However, for those who are time rich, the journey involves no changes and can be a good way to see the evolving landscape of the almost 1000 mile journey. The journey is mainly provided by ALSA and makes the journey 4 times a day.
