How to Travel from London to Warsaw?

You are spoiled for choice when it comes to transport options from London to Warsaw. You can choose to travel by train, by bus, or by plane depending on your needs. The travel time to Warsaw from London is usually around 2h plus by plane, 24h by bus, and usually 23h 35min by train. Flights and trains are available everyday of the week, but the trains on Saturday are significantly slower, taking nearly 28h to complete the journey. Buses to Warsaw are only available on alternating days of Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.

What is the Cheapest Way To Get from London to Warsaw?

The cheapest way to travel from London to Warsaw is often with a flight, which is also the fastest way to travel. However, the situation changes depending on when you book, as the price of a flight goes up significantly the later you book. For example, a next-day flight from London to Warsaw can cost more than 3 times as much as one a week later. The price of bus tickets, on the other hand, remains stable for last minute bookings. Therefore, travelling by bus will likely be cheaper if you are booking less than 6 days in advance.

Otherwise, flights from London to Warsaw can be half the price of bus travel on a Saturday, and nearly 7 times cheaper on a weekday 2 weeks in advance. Most flights are direct flights without any changes, which take from 2h 10min to 2h 35min. Direct flights are offered by Wizz Air, Ryanair, British Airways, and LOT Polish Airlines, but Wizz Air and Ryanair provide the lowest airfares.

Both have at least two flights a day every day of the week, except Saturday when Wizz Air has a single flight. Wizz Air flies out of London Luton Airport (LTN) and lands in Warszawa Chopin Airport (WAW), while Ryanair departs from London Stansted Airport (STN) and arrives at Warszawa Modlin Airport (WMI).

What is the Fastest Way to Travel from London to Warsaw?

The fastest way to travel from London to Warsaw is unquestionably by flying, which might also be the economical way to travel. A direct flight from London to Warsaw takes 2h 10min to 2h 25min, while buses take 23h 35min, and trains 24h. Even if you arrive early by the recommended 2h to account for checking in, flying is much faster than either bus or train. This is still true when taking a slower flight with a stopover. Ryanair and Wizz Air both offer the shortest flight time of 2h 10min. However, Wizz Air flies out of London Luton Airport (LTN) and lands in Warszawa Chopin Airport (WAW), while Ryanair departs from London Stansted Airport (STN) and arrives at Warszawa Modlin Airport (WMI).

Luton Airport is reachable from London through a 25min train journey from London St Pancras Station to Luton town station, from where you take a bus to the airport. A National Express coach will take 1h to 2h depending on traffic. Stansted Airport takes 47min to reach from Liverpool Street Station via express train and a National Express coach similarly takes 1h to 2h for the journey. Warszawa Chopin Airport is only 22min away from central Warszawa by train, and 45min by bus. Warszawa Modlin Airport is also 45min from the city centre by bus, but requires a shuttle bus to Modlin Train Station for access to rail service.
