If you're flying from Gatwick you might want to look into parking at Selhurst Park and jumping on the train down.
Edit: No, I always default to SkyScanner. Never stopped to think if its actually a good view of the market but I suspect it is. Keen to hear if others have any thoughts though. I'm looking into a weekend break for 7th December if anyone has any ideas. The wife likes a Christmas market and I think i'll struggle to sell Birmingham with a Saturday afternoon trip to Coventry to her.
