More Information about San Francisco
San Francisco Airport
Flights from London Heathrow, Manchester and Birmingham to San Francisco will disembark at San Francisco International Airport. San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is situated south of the city. The airport opened in 1927 and was awarded Best International Airport in 2008 by Skytrax.
British passport holders are eligible for the USA’s visa waiver program, allowing you to visit the United States without a visa for 90 days. While you might not need to apply for a visa, you will need to gain prior authorisation through the country’s Electronic System for Travel Authorisation, commonly referred to as an ‘ESTA.’ Those who are not approved by this online system prior to their flight may run the risk of being turned away at the airport. For travel on non-British passports or for more information, please ask your consultant.
Alongside Alcatraz and the traditional cable cars, the most iconic image of the city must be the Golden Gate Bridge, a worldwide symbol of San Francisco and the United States itself. Perhaps less universally known, though equally impressive, is Golden Gate Park, covering over 1,000 acres and featuring lakes, ponds, football fields, a museum – even a herd of buffalo.
The city boasts a great variety of San Francisco accommodation located within a range of unique neighbourhoods. On Fisherman's Wharf, take a seat at some of the best seafood restaurants in the city, play mah-jong in Chinatown or check out the Castro, the centre of the city's gay and lesbian community. Wander San Francisco's commercial centre, Union Square or unlock the city's best kept secrets on a San Francisco tour.
Museum enthusiasts will appreciate the contemporary art works at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and enjoy wandering through the European antiquities in the Palace of the Legion of Honor. Kids will love learning about the world around us at the Morrison Planetarium and marvel at the marine wonders that call the Steinhart Aquarium home. And unquestionably, for a bit of sophistication, there's no better way to spend a day than in sipping wine in the grape-growing-famous Napa Valley.
