Edinburgh or Dublin

The shortest flights are going to be Glasgow/Manchester/Belfast/Paris/Amsterdam - any of those appeal?

The first flight I ever did (I was an adult) was to the US. Does it have to be a short one? Could they not plan a weekend city break or something? Would be less restricting than looking for somewhere to get there and back in a day.

Channel Islands maybe?

Try Skyscanner. Put the destination as 'everywhere' and the month as February or March. I've just had a very quick look and there's a Ryanair flight to Belfast arriving at 10.20am and leaving at 7.50pm the same day (Saturday 4th Feb) for £27 return.

Inverness!!! Amazing views and short hop into town

Belfast City (George Best) airport. It's about an hour flight from LGW and the airport is 5 minutes by taxi from the city centre/Titanic exhibition.

QOD You're welcome, glad to be of help. Dublin sounds like a great choice smile

Look at skyscanner. leave the destination blank and it will give you the options in price order - cheapest first. Usually Milan is very cheap - does he have a passport?

Thanks hersetta it's all booked

Day in Dublin 😀
Dd is a 6th former so no money for hotels etc. I shall drive them to LGW and visit Brighton for the day and collect them again in the evening.
They'll both get some euros for Xmas

He's going to be so thrilled

We've been abroad so many times, dd has been all over and he's just wanting to get in a plane.
Such a great idea of hers
