Travel time between the UK and Grenada will vary depending on a number of factors. One of those is the departure airport you choose. The route averages 11h 10m – 23h 53m. There are several airports in the UK that service routes to Grenada, including London Heathrow, which is the largest and busiest. It also offers the most variety. You can also fly out of Edinburgh Airport, which is smaller and quieter, as well as Manchester Airport, Glasgow Airport, and Birmingham Airport. The only airport in Grenada is in St. George, and is Maurice Bishop Airport, previously known as Point Salines Airport. It is located about five miles south of the city proper, which is the capital of Grenada.
Unfortunately, there are no cities that offer direct flights to Grenada from the UK. However, there are many options available if you are willing to add a stopover or two to your flight. Airlines serving the UK to Grenada route include Delta, British Airways, Air Canada, American Airlines, and Virgin Atlantic. With a single stopover, your flight might last only 11h or so. However, flights with two stopovers can be up to 23h and longer and may include changing planes. Some of the more common stopover points include Saint Lucia, New York’s JFK Airport, Miami International, Barbados, Trinidad, and Boston to name just a few.
While there are quite a few options for travel within Grenada, taking the bus is the simplest and most affordable. There are designated bus stops in St. George, but drivers will stop anywhere necessary outside the city. Water taxis are available for those who wish to go from port to port, and car hires are offered, too. Those wishing to explore nearby islands can use any of the various ferries, as well.
It is not difficult to find things to do in Grenada. Since you will be flying into St. George, you can explore the island through eco tours that depart from the city, or even take a snorkeling tour from town. The River Antoine Estate Rim Distillery is a popular stop for those who appreciate spirits, while the House of Chocolate Museum makes a delectable addition to your itinerary. Concord Falls, Grand Anse Beach, and Royal Mount Carmel Falls are also well worth exploring.
You will need a valid passport that is good for at least six months after your date of entry for all flights to Grenada. However, if you hold a British passport, you are not required to have a visa. You will, however, need to have your ETD (emergency travel documents), and may need a yellow fever certificate, as well.
