About New York
Average flight time: 07hrs and 55 mins
Loud, glitzy, sprawling and relentlessly busy, New York is the ultimate megalopolis…the city of cities that never sleeps! Made up of five boroughs, of these Manhattan conjures up the primary iconic images most people think of.
Situated where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic, with so much to see and do you’d be hard-pushed not to be wowed. But a word of warning… you may feel like you need a relaxing holiday when you get back!
People love New York for countless different reasons, with spring, early autumn and Christmas the busiest tourist periods. Weather-wise, best times to visit are April to June or August to October when the weather is generally milder and you’re less likely to need to carry a coat. Peak daytime temperatures in September are about 25°C, decreasing month by month to February. Summers are warm and humid and winters can be extreme, often with snow and biting winds. On the plus side, the bitter chills of NYC winters do feel dryer and somehow less harsh than the British cold. Read our full destination guide here.
