Useful information about the flight from London Heathrow to Los Angeles

Premiere West Coast Attraction

Los Angeles is a picturesque and vibrant city with a wealth of attractions for all age groups and interests. With incredible theme parks, marvellous beaches and a wealth of other nearby attractions, there's something for all in this beautiful city.  

Best LA Time  

With mild winters and warm summers, L.A's weather is welcoming any time of year, though some may find the beaches a bit too chilly in the winter. The region is home to many of the countries largest film makers and industries, and the Oscar Gala every February is a great chance to see some of the biggest movie stars of the year.

Important Information Before You Travel

Lost Angeles is in North America's "Pacific" time zone, eight hours behind GMT. For British Citizens carrying British issued passports, you may be eligible for the Visa Waiver programme (VWP). Those with visits extending to ninety days and other nationalities will, however, not be eligible. Upon arrival, it's important to remember that posted prices rarely include tax, and waiters and waitresses in restaurants and bars make the majority of their wage from tips or gratuities from patrons (generally 15-20% depending on the quality of service).

Local Facts

The Los Angeles' airport lies roughly 20 kilometres from the city and 10 kilometres from Santa Monica.  

Taxis are widely available and prices to reach the city are generally around $45. Cars are available for hire and public transport is available throughout the season. The L.A bus line has often been criticised for being confusing to those not acquainted with how the system works, however.  

Popular hotel spots can be found along Venice Beach, Hollywood, and Santa Monica. While many hotels, particularly in downtown L.A and Beverly Hills are very expensive (often $100 a night), it is possible to find cheaper accommodation for around $25 too.
