Norwegian unveils new must-see sights in Denver and Seattle ahead of new route launches

Norwegian reveals the exciting new visitor attractions in Denver, Colorado and Seattle, Washington as the countdown begins to the airline’s two new USA routes launching at London Gatwick next month.

From Saturday 16th September, Norwegian will break the current monopoly on direct UK flights to Denver with a brand new two-weekly service, offering the only low-cost route from London to Denver. The following day on Sunday 17th September, the airline commences a new four weekly direct service to Seattle, offering to connect London Gatwick with the Pacific Northwest. Both routes will be serviced by brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft featuring high-quality economy and Premium cabins.

With new openings and stunning scenery, Denver and Seattle are now more attractive than ever to visit and here are the reasons why:

Denver - New hotels, new dinosaur exhibition and weekly craft beer collective

Denver perfectly combines city living with the great outdoors and has several new hotels and attractions ready to explore in time for Norwegian’s new flights.

  • Autumn 2017 - the first hotel opening in Denver’s hip RiNo (River North) district will include local craft brewer New Belgium sour beers. The Ramble Hotel also opens this winter featuring marquee lobby bar, Death & Co Denver – the first outside NYC.
  • October 2017 - The Denver Museum of Nature and Science will host a new exhibition, Ultimate Dinosaurs which will showcase spectacular fossils unearthed in recent years and augmented reality display of creatures in lifelike settings.
  • Every Saturday in 2017 - a collective comprised of Denver’s RiNo neighbourhood craft beverage providers, will offer free ETuk Denver rides to participating independent craft breweries, cideries and wineries.


Seattle - New food and cultural events and opening of Seattle’s largest hotel

With a thriving city, three national parks, dramatic Pacific coastline and cruise connections to Alaska, Seattle can appeal to Brits of all ages. The Emerald City also has a range of upcoming openings and events heading into 2018:

  • February 2018 - Seattle Museum Month begins giving visitors staying at participating hotels, a 50% discount on admissions to select museums, including the Museum of Popular Culture and the Museum of Flight, throughout February.
  • March 2018 - Food and wine lovers can explore Taste Washington which opens its doors to 235 wineries, 65 restaurants and 60 culinary exhibitors from across the region. Washington State is the second largest producer of wine in the USA.
  • Mid-2018 - the largest hotel in Seattle and one of the biggest on the West Coast will open with a premium, full service 1,260 guest room Hyatt Regency Hotel currently being developed in the heart of downtown Seattle.


Denver and Seattle become Norwegian’s eighth and ninth long-haul routes from Gatwick ahead of starting a new route to Singapore on 28th September followed by new services to Buenos Aires on 14th February, Chicago on 25th March and Austin on 27th March next year.
