How to get to Hungary

Hungary is about two hours' flying time from the UK, with international airports at Budapest, Debrecen and Sármellék (Lake Balaton), although at the time of writing only Budapest was served by British airlines.

Trains within Budapest are cheap and reliable, but it’s best to hire a car if you’re venturing outside the capital. The northern shore of Lake Balaton is two hours by road from Budapest.

It takes just 24hrs to get to Budapest from London by train, although you have to change three times so it isn’t an easy trip. For details, see The Man in Seat 61 (
