Best way to travel back to UK from Black Sea coast, Bulgaria

Hello! I'm flying from London to Sofia and over a week travelling to the Black Sea coast. Is it easier/ closer/ cheaper to fly back out of Sofia or instead fly from Bucharest? Thank you.

If you are on the Black Sea in Bulgaria why go into Romania? There are several flights a day from Varna or Burgas back to UK, mainly Gatwick and Luton, with easyJet and WIZZ and charters like Thompsons and Balkan

Wizzair are flying in to Bristol, Doncaster/Sheffield, Birmingham, Luton from Sofia and you can get an internal flight with them from Varna up to Sofia.

Ryanair are flying in to Liverpool, Birmingham, Stansted and Glasgow from Sofia and again you can get an internal flight up to meet these or you can fly to Stansted from Plovdiv as well.

Easyjet are flying in to Gatwick, Stansted and Manchester from Sofia and Gatwick from Varna.

So really there are loads of choices now in terms of really cheap flights.
