ARRIVING AT A LONDON AIRPORT... 

Arrival into London by air will bring you into one of six airports which are designated as a London airport:  Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Luton, London City and Southend airport. Only London City Airport and Heathrow are in actually in the political boundaries of London, with Heathrow right on the outskirts. Gatwick Airport, although the second busiest for London, is actually nearer to Brighton than Central London. However both Heathrow & Gatwick have fast & direct links to central London. Most long-haul travellers will arrive at Heathrow or Gatwick.
Worth considering, if you have the choice, are Stansted & Luton airports to the Northeast & North of London respectively. Both have internationally recognized budget airlines offering a cheaper alternative to Gatwick and Heathrow and offer flights to Europe, Near-Asia, North Africa, and Mediterranean and Atlantic Islands. London City airport offer a smaller, more corporate choice to European destinations.

You need to allow extra time to go through security and customs at all airports, given the security measures in place at the moment. There are often long queues at passport control, but once you have cleared this area, it is fairly easy and quick to reach the baggage hall. Most times it takes around 40-60 minutes to clear customs and collect luggage. This is the same for all airports, except London City Airport which can be slightly faster due to it small size and landing aircraft with smaller capacities.

HEATHROW AIRPORT (LHR).

  • Heathrow Airport is one of the biggest and busiest airport in the world with flights landing & taking off every 30 seconds during peak times. It has five terminals, but Terminal One is closed currently whilst hoping to show capacity availability for a third runway. This is making the other terminals very busy!
  • Terminals 2 & 3 are in the central area of two runways, while T4 and T5 are at separate parts of the airfield.
  • Heathrow is well connected with good transport links, but it is very big and it can be quite daunting. It is however well sign posted and has plenty of staff to help you if you get stuck. You can also check out their website before you travel.
  • Heathrow is well connected and has various forms of transportation.
  • Choice of connections to and from Heathrow include... Heathrow Express trains, the Underground(Tube), Local & national bus & coach services, licensed car & driver services. (Limo, Chauffeur, Airport Transfers, Minicabs & London Taxis).
    Note: All car services at Heathrow have to be pre-booked
    *
    (Heathrow website)
  • Underground. (The Piccadilly Line)
    • The Underground is the cheapest and one of the most straightforward way of reaching central London.
    • The principal disadvantages are that many Underground station have lots of stairs, &/or escalators and are not easy if you have luggage. Trains can also be very crowded at peak times, generally not a problem when boarding at Heathrow, but less pleasant upon reaching central London. In addition the Piccadilly line, from Heathrow, is 110 years old, and lacks proper air-conditioning (which can be an issue in mid-summer).
    • At many central London stations, step-free access is not an option.
    • For the savvy cash-conscious tourist however, the relative low cost of the Underground compared with other methods of travel means that they will take the Underground on routes to central London that make use of easy changes.
    • Using the Underground with accessability issues: 
    • In Central London underground stations are often very close together, so you can avoid steps & escalators quite easily.
    • For instance, you could use Kings Cross Station for hotels nearer other stations surrounding it, exit to ground level using the step-free access, and then take a London Bus (which have ramps) or a London Black Taxi (which both have access ramps!).
    • For instance, your could use Westminster Station for hotels in nearby areas (including Waterloo). Take Heathrow underground to a step-free change at Barons Court (just across the platform) followed by a step-free exit at Westminster and then take a Bus or Taxis. (Be warned: Westminster is busy with pedestrians above ground so be prepared to shout out "Excuse Me Please!" and force a parting of the waves on the pavements!)
    • A cash single to London is £6.  An off-peak (after 9:30am weekdays, any time weekend) travel-card is £12 and will cover you for the whole day. If you buy an Oyster Card, which requires a refundable deposit of £5, then the single fare is £5 peak, £3 off peak. Journey times to central London are around one hour.
      Directions & Step-free Access routes can be found on the TfL website: http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk/

    Heathrow "Express": (Overground to Paddington)
    • The most heavily marketed way to get to central London is the Heathrow Express.
    • The main advantage of the Heathrow Express is that the journey time is only 15 minutes to Paddington from terminals 2 and 3, 23 minutes from terminal 4 and 21 minutes from terminal 5. Trains run every 15 minutes, which is slightly less frequent than the Piccadilly line. In addition, the Heathrow Express is air conditioned with plenty of baggage space, on-board TV, free WiFi and better suited for travel from the airport than the Piccadilly Line. 
    • The main disadvantage, apart from the very high cost, is that the terminus is Paddington station, in West London! 
    • For most visitors to London, from here they will require further transport, quite possibly on the Underground, to reach their final destination. This travel will of course carry further costs.  If your final destination is not near Paddington, the time saving from using the Express can be very marginal.
    • On-the-day fares are £18 online, or £19 at the station. Promotional codes saving perhaps 10% can be found by a Google search for ' Heathrow express discount'. Tickets bought a long way ahead (months ahead) can be considerably cheaper.  The Group Weekender fare, available on weekends, cuts 50% off the walk-up fare for groups of four or more adults and/or children. The 50% discount is also available on child fares, which are as with all rail fares, 50% of the adult cost. A group of three would also save money using this deal but check if it's valid when only three are travelling. Passengers with railcards can avail of discounts on the Heathrow Express (e.g. 1/3 off for Student railcards) but will only be able to buy their ticket at a ticket office.
  • Heathrow "Connect": (Overground to Paddington)
    • The 'Connect' train, runs over the same route, Heathrow - Paddington, as the Heathrow Express, but has lower costs, lesser frequencies, and longer journey times (stopping at suburban stations on route).
    • The fare to Paddington is £9.10, still more than double the cost of the Underground for the same journey. The 30 minute journey frequency, plus the fact that the train does not serve Terminals 4 or 5 (you must first catch the Heathrow Express (free) to the main station serving Terminals 2 & 3), and the still high cost of this train, make it a poor option for most visitors.
    • However if your immediate destination is Paddington or if you are staying in certain areas of outer west London, it can be a viable transportation choice. Journey time to Paddington is 27 minutes.

  • Heathrow by Road: Taxis, Private Hire (Minicabs) and Coaches.
    • Note: All transfer/taxi services at Heathrow have to be pre-booked*
      (*London Licenced Taxis can be booked at the Heathrow Taxi Rank Kiosk as required, or book a Licenced Private Hire Vehicle from the Airport Information Desk in arrrivals, or in advance online.

    • Taxis:  (Heathrow Ranked).
      Taxis booked from outside Heathrow can work out to be expensive. Fares to central London are subject to metering (by TfL), but the meter runs up at a high rate, and you should not be surprised by a £80-£100 fare. Taxi drivers are very knowledgeable about London sites though, having obtained the famous knowledge test, which can make an interesting ride. This said, financially it is often better, if you want to travel by taxi, to book a private hire/minicab in advance online.All Licenced London Taxis have to accept credit or debit cards.
    • Pre-booked Licensed Private Car (& Driver) Hire: (Airport Transfer Service/Minicab)
      Pre-booked Licensed minicabs are often cheaper than taxis and more comfortable for longer journeys. You can search on-line for  "London Airport Connections Transfers" or similar. Pre-booking (by card) is standard and saves having to fumble about finding currency at the airport. Most professional airport services will meet&greet you inside the airport arrivals terminal, and take you directly to your destination. Price vary and you get what you pay for. Average fare for a decent (executive) airport transfer to central London ride should be around £55-£65 per vehicle (up to 4 passengers). There are cheaper services, and chauffeur services charge more. Beware of touts offering vehicles in the terminals.
    • National Express coaches: 
      National Express run from the central bus station (close to Terminals 1 and 3; from 4 and 5 transfer by free bus or train) to Victoria coach station in central London. A relatively unpopular choice, because they are more expensive than the underground, subject to traffic, and unlike a taxi/minicab, will not take you to your final destination.However they are still a reasonable choice if your final destination is points close to Victoria and you are landing at Terminal 1 or 3. Frequencies vary throughout the day from around every 15 minutes to hourly. Best avoided during morning rush hour, but by late evening journey times are down to only around 40 minutes (from over an hour in the morning). Fares are £6 single.

 

GATWICK AIRPORT (LGW).

  • Gatwick Airport is the second busiest UK airport, mainly aimed at leisure travellers. 
  • Gatwick has two terminals, North and South linked by a free monorail (shuttle).  
  • Gatwick has a good website with lots of useful information.
  • Gatwick is actually located to the south of London, halfway between the city and Brighton on the coast, and is too far out to have an Underground(Tube) connection. Railway & Road links at Gatwick are good though.
    (Gatwick Website)

Gatwick by Train/Railway.
Gatwick railway station is immediately adjacent to the South Terminal at Gatwick Airport. If leaving/arriving at the North Terminal take the free rail shuttle. Trains from Gatwick to London run to various London stations, including Victoria station via Clapham Junction, London Bridge and a cross London service to Bedford calling at Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon and St Pancras (among others).

  • Trains branded Southern or Thameslink:
    All trains from Gatwick into London are operated by "GoViaThameslink Railway", who operate different brands.  Most travellers use the Southern Railways train to Victoria, reached in 30 minutes (or so), or the Thameslink train to Blackfriars in 40 minutes (or so). A limited number of services run to London Bridge - major engineering works will affect this station until 2018, which will limit connection from London Bridge.  From central London stations, Tube, bus or London Taxis connections can be made to your final destination.
  • Gatwick Express:
    The heavily marketed 'Gatwick Express' service runs to Victoria.  Many assume that this is a "dedicated" train, running only to the airport.  It isn't.  As from Dec 2015, half of all "express" trains run through to/from Brighton, and therefore may well be full with commuters by the time they reach Gatwick.  The service uses the same "commuter" type carriages as other services, but with Express branding stickers on the side.  These services are five minutes faster than non-Express trains to Victoria, but more expensive.
  • Railway tickets at 2012 fares are:
  • £9.90 single to stations through to St Pancras (via London Bridge) etc., valid on First Capital Connect trains.
  • £10.20 single for a ticket (£4.90) from Gatwick to East Croydon and then another ticket (£5.30) from East Croydon to Victoria (the single fare from Gatwick to Victoria is higher, at £13.70, so you can split it this way to save £3.50).
  • £12.50 one-day travel-card (Valid for First Capital Connect trains after 9:30 on weekdays & all day at weekends). The bonus of this ticket is that it's also valid for all tube/bus travel in central London for same day.
  • £13.40 for a ticket to East Croydon (£4.90) plus a one day zone 1-6 travel-card (£8.50) (valid after 9:30 weekdays, one day weekends), valid on all trains to London except the 'Gatwick Express' and for all tube/bus travel within central London.
  • The Gatwick Express costs £18.90 single, £16.85 if booked on-line. You can get a lower fare by buying these tickets: Gatwick Airport - Boundary Zone 6 (£8.10, or £7.70 after 09:50) plus Boundary Zone 6 -  London Victoria (£5.30) = £13/£13.40. You would need to buy these split tickets from the ticket office, not from the machine. If you wanted a Gatwick Express travelcard, then the Boundary ticket, for £7.70, plus a one-day off-peak zone1-6 travel-card costing £8.50, would come to £16.20.
  • From January 2016, passengers can use "pay as you go" Oyster for this journey - instead of buying a conventional rail ticket.  Services branded "express" will have a higher charge.

Gatwick Road: Taxis, Private Hire(Minicabs) and Coaches.
The train is the fastest route to Central London. If considering a taxi, pre-booked minicab or coach into London, note that the road journey to central London can be slow, on a weekday morning rush-hour it can possibly take three times as long as the journey by train. However if you are going somewhere not conveniently closeby a mainline (overground) station, you may need to continue your journey by taxis or underground. This will obviously incur more time/effort. 

  • Taxis:  (Gatwick Taxi Booth).
    Taxis taken from Gatwick can also be expensive. Fares to central London can be set fares so check the fare before taking the ride. You should not be surprised by a £100-£150 fare. Gatwick Taxi drivers are not so knowledgeable about London though, as they are licensed by Crawley Council and have not obtained the famous knowledge test which the London Taxis drivers do. Financially it is often better, if you want to travel by taxi, to book a private hire/minicab in advance.
  • Pre-booked Licensed Private Car (& Driver) Hire: (Airport Transfer Service/Minicab) 
    Pre-booked Licensed minicabs are often cheaper than taxis and more comfortable for longer journeys. You can search on-line for  "London Gatwick Airport Connections taxi" or similar. Pre-booking (by card) is standard and saves having to fumble about finding currency at the airport. Most professional airport services will meet you inside the airport terminal, and take you directly to your destination. Price vary and you get what you pay for. Average fare for a decent (executive) airport transfer to central London ride should be around £95-£105 per car (up-to 4 passengers). There are cheaper services, and chauffeur services charge more.
  • Express coaches: 
    Express coaches & buses, run by National Express, to Victoria are worth considering at £8, but they are much much slower than the train. Easybus takes 65 minutes to West Brompton/Earls Court, is worth it if you book online for £2 (but not so great at £10 on the day). Buses run every 20 minutes.
    BE WARNED! Easybus Tickets are only valid for up to 60 minutes after your booked bus, so if your flight is delayed or you are running late be warned!.  


STANSTED AIRPORT (STN).

  • Stansted Airport, to the north of London, is used primarily used by charter and low-cost airlines, with mostly short-haul European destinations.
  • Although it has just one terminal, it is the UK's third busiest airport, although it tends to exchange positions with Manchester Airport.
  • Stansted has a good website full of useful information about travelling to and from the airport.
  • Stansted is located to the North East of London, halfway between the cities of London and Cambridge, and is too far out to have an Underground(Tube) connection. Railway & Road links at Stansted are very good though.
    (Stansted Website)

Stansted railway station is immediately below the terminal at Stansted and easily accessed. Stansted connects directly with London Liverpool Street to the East of London City, and other UK destinations.  

  • Stansted Express:
    The heavily marketed 'Stansted Express' service, runs to Liverpool Street in central London. During the day Express trains run every 15 minutes to London Liverpool Street (46 minutes) via Tottenham Hale (32 minutes). Trains are not 24 hours and on Sundays are less frequent.  The "Express" name is just a brand applied to some trains, the train operator is Abellio Greater Anglia for all trains on this route, whether there is "express" branding on the train or not.  For many destinations in London it is easier to change onto the Underground (Victoria line) at Tottenham Hale. This can be quicker and easier than continuing on to Liverpool Street (Circle, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City Line). From London Liverpool Street, Tube, bus or London taxi connections can be made easily to your final destination. 
    Railway tickets at 2012 fares are:
  • Stansted to Liverpool Street £22.50 (£18.80 from Audley End, or £14.70 arriving London after noon or any time weekends)

    (Note: The loophole which used to enable travel on tickets to Audley End to save money has been removed)

Stansted by Road: Taxis, Private Hire(Minicabs) and Coaches.
Although the train is often considered the best & fastest route to Central London, a pre-booked minicab or taxi could also be considered as they go door to door and save loads of time and effort trying to work out interchanges and routes.

  • Taxis:  (Stansted Kiosk).
    Taxis taken from Stansted kiosk can be very expensive. Fares to central London can be set so check the fare before taking the ride. You should not be surprised by a £100-£150 fare.
    Stansted taxi drivers are not always so knowledgable about London though, as they are licensed outside of London and have not obtained the famous London knowledge test.
    Financially it is often better, if you want to travel by taxi, to book a private hire/minicab in advance.
  • Pre-booked Licensed Private Car (& Driver) Hire: (Airport Transfer Service/Minicab) 
    Pre-booked Licensed minicabs are often cheaper than taxis and more comfortable for longer journeys.
    You can search on-line for  "London Stansted Airport Transfer Connections" or similar. Pre-booking (by card) is standard and saves having to fumble about finding currency at the airport.
    Most professional airport services will meet you inside the airport terminal, and take you directly to your destination.
    Price vary and you get what you pay for. Average fare for a decent (executive) airport transfer to central London ride should be around £70-£100 per car (upto 4 passengers). There are cheaper services, and chauffeur services charge more.
  • Express coaches: 
    Express coaches & buses, run by various companies to various destinations are worth considering, but they are much much slower than the train, private transfer or taxi.
    There are six routes:
    • National Express - to Victoria calling at Golders Green (70 minutes), Finchley Road, Marylebone, Baker Street, Marble Arch, Victoria rail, and finally Victoria coach (105 minutes). A slow means of reaching London, but cheaper than the train, at £10 single. Every 20 minutes.
      National Express to Liverpool Street (75 minutes) via Stratford (50 minutes), Bow, Mile End and Whitechapel. Half-hourly, £8 single.
      Terravision
       - Stansted to Victoria non-stop in 75 minutes, £9 single, half-hourly. Stansted to Stratford (via Redbridge 33 minutes). 40 minutes, £6 single, half-hour. Stansted to Liverpool Street, 55 minutes, £9 single, half-hourly. Note that during 2016, a licencing dispute between Terravision and the airport owners has prevented these coaches reaching the terminal directly, passengers being forced to chnage to another service en route.  
    • Easybus - running to Baker Street (75 minutes) every 20 minutes, £10 single, book online for fares from £2.
      BE WARNED! 
      Easybus Tickets are only valid for up to 60 minutes after your booked bus, so if pre-booked tickets are purchased and your flight is delayed or you are running late be warned!

LUTON AIRPORT (LTN)

  • Luton is located to the north of London in the City of Luton and is used primarily by holiday charter and low-cost airlines, servicing mostly short-haul European destinations, as well as private jets for business.
  • All trains stop short of the airport and a futher bus ride is necessary.
  • Luton is now well served by major roads from the M1, but the local airport roads can be busy.
  • Whichever way you decide to travel, Train, Bus or Car, give extra time for a journey going TO this airport!
  • Although a train is often considered the best & fastest route to Central London, here at Luton Airport it is definately not.

GENERAL TRANSPORT ADVICE...
Taxis & Private Transfer Safety Advice:

  1. Never take the offer of a Taxi or Minicab transfer from any individual whilst inside a UK airport, even if they show a licence badge stating they are a Taxi or Minicab.
  2. Many touts operate in London Airports, particularly at Heathrow. They are often illegal, non-licensed and unsafe vehicles driven by unskilled and unsafe drivers.
  3. Many unlicensed 'taxis' are operated by criminal gangs, & fares often rise by the time you reach your destination.
  4. If you take a un-booked ride from the airport your journey may be stopped abruptly by the police, leaving you stranded.
  5. Any taxi driver, licensed or not, approaching you to offer a ride at any UK airport immediately invalidates their insurance and your travel insurance too! Just say 'no, thanks').  
  6. Be Safe, Be Sure! There are two ways of hiring a car transfer from UK airports...
    Book in advance... on-line or by telephone, with a licensed private car transfer or taxi company.
    Check any website you book through has a physical contact address, a genuine telephone number, and TfL PHV License.
  7. If you are already at the airport, take a Licensed Taxi from an authorized rank or office at the airport.
    If you want a private car, go to the Airport Information desk for a list of licensed car companies.
    If in doubt go to the Airport Information Desk, which are available in all UK Airport Arrivals Halls, for advise. 

AIRPORT PARKING... 

  • It is worth shopping around for your parking around the airports. Even though some parking seems more expensive, check out where the car park actually is.
  • Purple Parking offers parking at a wide selection of UK airports. Unfortunately it is off-airport parking (but you do get a free shuttle bus to and from the airport), and they also offer 'chauffeur' service where they can drop and pick you up outside terminal building). 

RENTAL CAR HIRE...

  • Another way to get from the airports to London is through car hire ( North American term: rental car.) Bear in mind, driving around London can be a hellish experience, especially during "rush hour", the daily morning and afternoon commutes that, despite their name, tend to last from about 06.00 to 09.30 and 16.00 to 19.00.
  • Car hire in the UK is expensive, but all the major rental companies operate from the airports, though most travellers will find they have no use for a car in Central London. Only consider hiring a car if you're planning to visit more rural areas. 
  • Also remember that if you rent a car, you are responsible for paying the congestion charge, £10 per day, to drive into central London. Parking is also very costly.
