Independent Travellers: Getting from Heathrow into London

Travelling from Heathrow to LondonIt’s never too early to start planning logistics when it comes to travel!

Those Spring 2012 students who are on the group flights from New York will have Heathrow-to-London transportation taken care of, but if you’re an independent traveller you needn’t worry — there are several easy ways to get into the city:

  • Take the Tube direct from Heathrow to Holborn station, the closest Tube stop to Faraday House. (Travel time: slightly less than one hour.)
  • Take Heathrow Connect or Heathrow Express trains to Paddington Station, then the Tube or a cab from Paddington to Holborn. (Travel time to Paddington: 25 minutes for Heathrow Connect, 15 minutes for Heathrow Express.)
  • Take a National Express coach to Victoria Station, and the Tube or a cab to Holborn. (Travel time to Victoria: around one hour.)
  • Hire a licensed car service, such as Dial-a-Cab or The Keen Group. (Travel time: around 30-45 minutes.)

It may seem daunting at first, but Heathrow to London transport is so common to travellers that it’s really quite easy and traveller-friendly. And don’t forget — The SU London Program is based at:

Faraday House
48-51 Old Gloucester Street
London, WC1N 3AE
+44 (0)20 7400 9310
