There is loads of info online about return flights from Europe, but all I want is a one-way from Accra back to London in December.
Still looking, but so far the cheapest I have seen is more than £700! That's too much.
Can anyone advice? Also, can I get a visa for Ghana in Sierra Leone?

1Flying in W.Africa isn't cheap, Dakar - Freetown will probably cost 300euros one way, although things are changing in the aviation industry in the sub-region.
Flying out of Accra to London you should be able to get cheaper; depends on the date in December bearing in mind it's holiday season & lots of expats leaving to spend Christmas at home. You may well find something cheaper from a travel agency in Accra.
Ghanaian visa is difficult to get outside of your country of residence, I'd suggest getting one before leaving or else you a) might not get one in Freetown or b) go through the more expensive route with one on arrival that could take some time to organise whilst you probably want to be travelling (2 weeks or so!)

What's your travel date?
If you don't bother to make a stop en route, Skyscanner is showing one-way fares under 500 (and, some days, even 400) GBP any day in the week of Dec. 18th. I didn't look at other weeks but you can probably find similar prices on other weeks too. You could also take a look at the fares of Arik Air from Accra to London changing planes in Lagos (Nigeria) as (usually) they aren't showed in meta searches like Skyscanner or Kayak.

3Last year I paid £175 inc tax return to Banjul in The Gmabia from London. Single was half price. Was with http://www.flythomascook.com/
It might be cheaper for you to fly out from Gambia and get a local African flight from Accra to Gambia. Or spend the time travelling overland. Dakar to Banjul is less than a day travel by sept place taxi by the way.
