It’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
