Here are some of the great destinations you can fly to from London City Airport to get some winter sun.


Faro is really a disregarded jewel of Portugal, as many people simply pass through this fantastic place on their way to The Algarve. Faro is full of great medieval architecture and the restaurants serve some of the best seafood in Portugal.

This very pretty and highly historic town is well worth a visit, the city centre has some charming pedestrianised streets that contain bijou cafes and restaurants as well as many craft shops.

Faro is laid back and takes its time over things, old men are in the plazas playing chess and dominoes. But at night Faro comes alive and there is a great social scene.


If you have never experienced Andalusia then it is very different from other parts of Spain. This is because of the Moorish influences of its history. The towns and cities of this southern part of Spain are distinctly different, they fuse Arab and Iberian cultures into bustling and energetic places.

Granada is one of the best, the architecture is an eclectic mix of Moorish and Spanish with Arabic bathhouses and distinctly Spanish tapas bars. Of course, the bazaars are a must to see, where many great handmade crafts are on display. All of this takes place with a backdrop of the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains, and the temperature will make you forget about icy Britain.


The Costa del Sol has been a favourite destination for Britain’s in search of sun, sand, and sea. For decades legions of Britain’s have been taking advantage of the great all-year-round climate and the reasonable prices of eating and drinking.

Malaga is the largest town in the region, but it also has some stunning beaches which are great for the whole family. Like many Mediterranean towns, the people of Malaga prefer to wine and dine late in the evening, and the nightlife does not even start until after midnight.


Many people travel to this Cyclades Island to have one long beach party, the beaches are almost deserted and lazing about on the sandy beaches is about as busy as it gets during the day.

Don’t be fooled by this petite island, it has a diverse eating culture with world foods rubbing shoulders with classic Greek fare and some fantastic seafood. There are smart cafes and bistros together with really trendy bars to while away the evenings.

These wonderful destinations are just some of the great places to get to from London City Airport, to secure your airport transfer from Southfields or Putney contact Elite Car Service today.
