Airport Information

The Nearest Airports to Kings Lynn :

Norwich Airport (NWI) is the nearest airport to Kings Lynn but not the most convenient unless you hire a car. Usually flights to this airport are more expensive than flying into the London Airports. Generally flights to and from here are routed through Amsterdam (with KLM airways). It is not so straightforward to travel from this airport to Kings Lynn. You will need to get a airport link bus or taxi into Norwich (see ) and then take the train or bus from to Kings Lynn from the centre of Norwich. For train information visit and for bus information go to (its the X1 bus line you need).

London Stansted (STN) which is north of London  is by far the most convenient airport to fly into as there is a train station at this airport and in less than 2 hours you will be in Kings Lynn (usually change at Cambridge on route). London Stansted is utilised by many budget airlines throughout Europe and so please look for deals with these. For longer haul flights outside Europe you will probably find that you have to fly into London Gatwick or London Heathrow instead.  For train links from London Stansted airport to Kings Lynn please visit this website: – please enter “Stansted Airport” in the search (not London Stansted).

From Heathrow airport there are several options on how to get across London to Kings Cross Station. The cheapest is to get the underground tube ( There is a station at the airport and you need to get on the Piccadilly line to Kings Cross (about 45 minutes). The next cheapest and quicker option is to get the Heathrow Connect ( . This a faster train that connects you from Heathrow Airport to Paddington Station (about 25 minutes). From Paddington you then need to get on the underground tube to Kings Cross (Hammersmith and City Line). Faster and more expensive is the Heathrow Express (  which again links you to Paddington Station (15 minutes) and from here you need to get the underground tube to Kings Cross (Hammersmith and City Line). We think the underground is the best option as you don’t have to change trains to get from Heathrow to Kings Cross station. Onward Travel by Bus: Please refer to  for details of buses from Heathrow Airport to Kings Lynn.
