The hotels connected to Terminal 4 and the Hilton Garden Inn offer the best hotels from a logistic point of view, if you want to go sightseeing in London.


Underneath Terminal 4 is a London Underground station and also the Heathrow Express runs to London much more quickly. Beside the Hilton Garden Inn is Hatton Cross Underground Station.


The London Underground offering a reasonable cost transport option takes the best part of an hour to get into Central London.


Pay out the premium prices of the fast Heathrow Express train and the London Paddington terminus is probably far from where you want to go in Central London, so you will need additional transport, usually by tube.
