FROM HEATHROW

The Tube:

This is by far the easiest and cheapest way to get into central London. After collecting your luggage, follow the signs to the Underground Station (the tube) and buy a ticket (even if there is no one on duty you should still buy a ticket at the machine as you will need it at the end of your journey). It takes about 45 minutes to get into central London on the Piccadilly line. For more tube information, see page 74 and the map on the inside back page.

Heathrow Express:

This leaves every 15 minutes from Heathrow and takes 15 minutes to arrive at Paddington Station in central London. You can then buy another ticket and complete your journey on the Underground.

FROM GATWICK

Southeastern Trains:

These trains run regularly into London Victoria Station, stopping at various stations along the way and taking about 40 minutes. Tickets must be bought at the station before you board.

Gatwick Express:

This direct service also runs regularly into London Victoria Station and takes about 30 minutes. You can buy your ticket in the station or on the train for no extra cost. It departs every 15 minutes.
