Useful information about the flight from London Gatwick to New York

Flight to New York JFK from Gatwick

Visiting New York City will truly be the experience of a lifetime no matter what time of year that you visit. New Yorkers know how to give visitors a cultural treat, whether it is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade or the ball drop on New Year's Eve. Whether it's their art, their fashion, their fabulous shopping or the multitudes of museums, there is always something to do in the Big Apple.

New York's climate, holidays and festivals

There really is not a bad time to travel to this colourful city. Be aware that the New York City winters are extremely cold, however, this is also the time of year when hotel rates are at their lowest. You can enjoy the New York Film Festival in September; the Lighting at Rockefeller Center in November; and all of the New Year's Eve festivals in December. Surprisingly, there are a lot of colourful displays during the Chinese New Year celebration in February as well. Partake in the St. Patrick's Day Parade and the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus in March and the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit in May. Finally, enjoy the Metropolitan Opera in the Parks in July and the New York International Fringe Festival in August. Insofar as the weather is concerned, showers are common in spring and humidity can be fairly high during the summer.  

A few useful facts

Some British passport holders may be able to visit New York under the Visa Waiver Programme. If you hold a British passport but are not a British citizen you will not be eligible under the programme and will have to acquire a visa before you visit. You may notice upon your visit that New York is fairly strict when it comes to tobacco and alcohol. You might also notice that the cost of living is quite a bit cheaper for grocery items. Of course, tax is not included as it is in Britain.
