Pack a pair of comfortable shoes and make sure those waistbands are loose: this centre of French gastronomy has plenty of sights up its finely-styled sleeves (perfect for strolling off those Lyonnaise calories).

Currently, only British Airways operates direct flights to Lyon from Heathrow Airport (LHR). Low-cost fares are easy to find on this frequent service and the average flight time is one hour and 35 minutes.

Flights arrive at Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport (LYS).

Heathrow Airport is the busiest in the UK and a major international air hub for the rest of the world.

Located to the west of London, the airport is accessed with ease by road and rail from the capital and beyond. Handy, as Heathrow sees some 75 million passengers passing through its terminals each year.

Transport options to Heathrow include bus, coach, underground and over ground rail services (including the Heathrow Express from London Paddington). If you plan to drive and park, compare car-parking costs with TravelSupermarket well in advance of your trip and make savings on the drive-up price.

There are four terminals at Heathrow Airport – 2, 3, 4 and 5. T5 is by far the busiest, with some 33 million passengers boarding more than 200,000 flights per year.

The amenities here are excellent. You can expect a choice of airport lounges, shops, restaurants, prayer rooms, and free charging points for mobile phones. Family facilities include play areas in Terminals 2, 4 and 5 and a free-to-enter family lounge in T3.

It’s sensible to arrive 2-3 hours prior to your scheduled departure time.
