How to get to Washington DC

The closest international airport is Washington Dulles. BA, Virgin Atlantic and United Airlines have regular non-stop flights between Heathrow and Dulles. Search for flight deals with Expedia.

There are several options for getting from the airport to downtown Washington. Cabs are very expensive, probably around $40. The Washington Flyer has a bus to the West Falls Church Metro station, where you can catch an orange line train to many downtown or suburban locations. A third alternative is an express Metro bus, which takes you to the Rosslyn Metro station, where you can board a blue or orange line train. Remaining on the bus will take you to the L'Enfant Plaza area, close to many of the Smithsonian museums.

Most tour operator packages from the UK will include transfers between airport and hotel.

If you have rented a car, leave it at the hotel and travel by Metro. Day passes can be purchased from a machine at all Metro stations. The Metro is clean, fast and inexpensive, and runs on time. The best hop-on hop-off bus is the Tourmobile.
