Useful information about the flight from London Heathrow to Bangalore

A Modern, Hi-Tech City In An Old Country

With a population of 8.5 million, Bangalore is India's third largest city. For a long time it was known as the "Garden City of India", due to its wide streets, numerous public parks and gentle climate, Bangalore has also gotten a name for itself as India's answer to Silicon Valley, due to being the country's primary information technology hub.

When To Visit Bangalore

In terms of weather, October is generally the best time to visit Bangalore. Winter is, however, mild by European standards with December being the coolest time of year with an average temperature of 15°C. Summer there, lasting from February to May has an average temperature of around 36°C, which is also mild when compared to other parts of India. June to October is monsoon season, so visitors going then should be prepared. Bangalore celebrates both Hindu and Muslim festivals throughout the year, such as Karaga Shaktyotsava, a nine day festival in March or April in honour of the Hindu goddess Draupadi. There's also a bi-annual flower show in January and August.

Important information before you travel

UK citizens need a visa before travelling to India. This can be obtained through the Indian High Commission or if arriving in certain cities, an e-tourist visa can be applied for. It's strongly advised that visitors to India are vaccinated against hepatitis A and B and typhoid, as well as getting a polio booster shot. 

The official language in Bangalore is Kannada as well as Hindi, but as in most parts of India, English is widely spoken, and most signs are also in English.

Local information: getting around and accommodation

Buses in Bangalore are cheap, at around 40 rupees for a day pass, though the traffic can make this a slow option at certain times. An air-conditioned taxi runs on the meter and must be booked in advance. Auto-rickshaws are also metered and work out at around 15 rupees per kilometre. 10% extra is charged at night time and there is a surcharge for heavy baggage. Passengers are not expected to tip in taxis or rickshaws.

Bangalore has hostels and hotels to suit all budgets. A cheap room can be around 700 rupees a night, and a luxury place around 4000. Do note that there is a 20% government tax on advertised prices, so factor this in when calculating costs.
