The majority of holiday visitors to Morocco fly. Flights from the UK take approximately three hours. However, there are other ways to get there if you have a bit more time and would prefer a more scenic route! Trains through France and Spain are a relaxing way to get down to the ferries crossing the strait of Gibraltar (which now only takes 35 minutes).**
Driving times are generally 30 hours (non stop) from London to Marrakech. Best split over 3 nights in Paris, Madrid and the south of Spain but some do it quicker!

Flights via Casablanca with Royal Air Maroc are available BUT the schedule means that there are often long stopovers in Casablanca on the return flight. We therefore avoid booking these to save you a 5 or 6 hour wait in transit. Flights to Fes from Heathrow with Royal Air Maroc work very well on the outbound journey with a 1.5 hour stop in Casablanca. We recommend flying back from Casablanca when ending the holiday in Fes as it is only a 2-hour transfer by motorway. This is of course unless there is a direct flight with Ryanair that day to Stansted which may be better for you

Food and service excellent in both.
We had a fabulous holiday at Les Deux Tours and Maroc Lodge. Accommodation at both places was superb, better than we could have imagined, with Les Deux Tours stylish and elegant and Maroc Lodge more period, food and service excellent in both.
At Maroc Lodge, we felt particularly looked after as I got a stomach problem and ...
Freelance travel writer, Susannah Osborne, travelled to Marrakech with Lawrence of Morocco in September 2012, writing for the Financial Times.
When travelling around Morocco it is not (contrary to common belief) necessary for women to ‘cover up’ out of respect for local modesty traditions. Morocco is a very mixed society with Moroccans who dress as westerners and more traditional families dressing in a more traditional way.
The only areas of the country where it is advisable for women to cover up their legs and shoulders would be in some parts of the High Atlas Mountains (very remote areas) where the locals are rarely visited by foreigners. It is highly unlikely that you will be visiting these areas on any holiday arranged by Lawrence of Morocco.
