No Tour Bus Visits Heathrow

There are no sightseeing tours that pick up from Heathrow or its hotels that will take you sightseeing into London. If you want a tour of London then you will need to take public transport into the centre of London and join the tour there.

Windsor - An Alternative To London As A Stopover, Closer & More Convenient

If your priority is to just find something more pleasurable than killing time between flights in an airport terminal, Windsor is a great alternative to London, it is very close to Heathrow. Public buses run from Terminal 5 frequently stopping outside Windsor Castle, but there is much more to Windsor and Eton than the castle.

If you have luggage we have a solution that takes care of that too.

Heathrow - Central London Public Transport Options

If you have luggage there are left luggage offices in all of Heathrow's passenger terminals and also at the major train stations including Paddington and Victoria in London as well as Victoria Coach Station. Apart from Victoria Coach Station they are all run by the same company at the same prices.

In order of public transport cost: (cheapest to most expensive).

London Underground Train. For most people this is going to be by far the cheapest transport option. Underground trains leave Heathrow about every 5 minutes throughout the day.

National Express Coach runs the UK's main national inter city bus network. In their way into and out of London these coaches stop at Heathrow. For a fare only slightly more than the Underground you get a luxury coach with bathroom between Heathrow and Victoria Coach Station in London.

Heathrow Connect Train . A full size 'overground' dedicated airport train that shuttles between Heathrow and London's Paddington Station. Despite being a stopping train it still makes its destination, Paddington in Central London in 25 minutes, about half the time of the Underground.

Heathrow Express Train is the Rolls Royce option. The train runs like the Heathrow Connect train to London's Paddington station but non-stop taking just 15 minutes. The Heathrow Express runs every 15 minutes.

Private Transfers from small cars up to large coaches are available to charter. For families with luggage this can make good economic sense and for larger groups door to door transport at a compelling price per person can be a no brainer.
