Several good airlines like Turkish Airlines, British Airways and Air Fiji offer direct flights to Istanbul from London at competitive prices. From Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton, you can choose your departure airport according to convenience. Istanbul has two airports- Ataturk and Sabiha.

Cheap London - Istanbul Flights

To travel between London and Istanbul at a low cost, Easyvoyage provides two major pieces of information: the calendar and the price history for London - Istanbul flights. These elements will allow you to analyse the cheapest London - Istanbul flights by departure date.

Sightseeing Istanbul 1 Topkapi Palace

The Topkapi Palace was the home of the Ottoman sultans for 4 centuries. With lavish décor and brilliant architecture, this palace is sensational. The opulent treasury and the harem are interesting slices of history that will delight scholars and tourists alike.

2 Ayasofya

Ayasofya is a glowing monument from the Byzantine era. Initially a church, it was later converted to a mosque. Now it's a museum showcasing centuries-old mosaics and marble pillars. The Ottoman sultans' tombs are also a major attraction.

3 Basilica Cistern

This sixth century basilica, with 336 pillars, is a magical place. Supposedly built by 7000 slaves, this cathedral-cistern was used to store and provide water to the city centuries ago. Now with lights and music this is a tourist attraction not to be missed.

4 The Grand Bazaar

You simply cannot come to Istanbul from London and not buy a traditional Turkish carpet. The Grand Bazaar has over 5000 vendors, and if you want to see and sample their wares, you need an entire day. Prices are negotiable and haggling is a general practice.

5 Ayasofya bathhouse

The Ayasofya hamam (bathhouse) is an alternate spa experience. After your long London - Istanbul trip, wash off your exhaustion at the marbled bathing area. Relax with a Turkish massage and prepare for another day of exploring this glorious city.

Required travel documents for Turkey

To visit Istanbul, your passport should be valid for at least 90 days more than the validity of your visa. What kind of visa you need, or whether you need a visa at all, depends on your passport and the country it was issued in. Those with official (diplomatic and special) passports often get certain privileges. Assuming you have an official passport that was issued in UK, you need no visa to visit Turkey for 90 days or less. Ordinary UK passport holders need a visa issued, but this can be done online through this website - http://www.evisa.gov.tr/en/ These multiple-entry visas are generally valid for three months. For passports issued in other countries, go to http://www.mfa.gov.tr/visa-information-for-foreigners.en.mfa and find out whether you need a visa or not. The time difference is 2 hours so book your flight between London and Istanbul accordingly.
