Getting There There are nonstop flights daily from Heathrow on Royal Jordanian and British Airways and thrice-weekly from Gatwick on easyJet. The flight time is five hours. If you’re starting from elsewhere in the UK you could opt for a shuttle flight into Heathrow or Gatwick to pick up a connection, or explore options on Lufthansa via Frankfurt, Austrian via Vienna or Air France via Paris. Alternatively, Turkish Airlines has some decent fares from Birmingham, Manchester and Dublin to Amman via Istanbul.

When to go The best time to visit Jordan is spring, (March–May); the temperatures are warm, wildflowers are out everywhere and the valleys are lush and gorgeously colourful. However, a desert wind, loaded with dust can blow in spring or early summer and last for a few days. The summer runs through June to September and can be hot. End September to November is also a good season in Jordan. The first rains fall in early or mid-October, making the parched countryside bloom again. If you catch it, this can be a lovely time to visit. Dec to Feb is the winter season in Jordan.
