London’s Heathrow Airport, the main gate to London from the rest of the world, is located 15 miles west of Central London and is one of the busiest airports on Earth. It can seem like a monumental task to get from the airport to the center of the city, but the reality is that you have plentiful options for getting there.
Here are your best bets for getting from Heathrow to the center of London.
Heathrow Express Train
The Heathrow Express Train is probably the fastest and most direct way to get from Heathrow to Central London. With no intermediate stops except at Terminals 2 and 3, it takes travelers only 15 to 20 minutes to get to Paddington Station in the heart of London.
Piccadilly Line (London Underground)
If you are looking for a metro option that’s a little less expensive than the train, you can take the Piccadilly Line from the airport to the Piccadilly Circus tube station in the heart of the city. It also provides connections to a load of other metro lines.
National Express Coach
Not a fan of the metro or trains? You can also take a National Express coach from the airport to the center of the city and vice versa for as little as 10 pounds! It’s another great option for Heathrow to central London connections.
