Flights to Philadelphia
Get a taste of the East Coast
Step right back into US history on the streets of Philadelphia. This is where the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution. It was even the capital city before Washington DC came along.
Come and explore the pretty squares and redbrick buildings of Pennsylvania's largest city, otherwise known as the City of Brotherly Love. It's not all about the past though. Our flights to Philadelphia mean your first mouthwatering bite of the great Philly cheesesteak is not too far away.
The home of Philly cheesesteaks
The heart of the city’s burgeoning food scene is East Passyunk Avenue, where the culinary mecca draws in foodies from all over Philadelphia. Choose your cheesesteak wisely – the choice between the veteran rivals Geno’s or Pat’s King of Steaks is a tough one – and don’t expect you can be friends with both.
In Center City pay a visit to the Independence National Historic Park, which has been ranked America’s most historic square mile, and is the hub of Philadelphia tourism. Here you’ll find the iconic Liberty Bell, a symbol of American freedom, alongside Independence Hall.
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is another big favourite. It's the largest art museum in the US and keeps more than 227,000 items within its majestic, neo-classical façade.
Take a stroll
Go for a leisurely wander through Philadelphia’s famous Fairmont Park, which is even bigger than its New York City counterpart. Dare we say that Philadelphia knows how to do East Coast better?
Explore the streets from a completely different perspective on a segway, or get a bird's eye view of the city from the famous Philadelphia Zoo balloon.
