Airport Transfer:

Heathrow Express:

Trains run between 05:10 and 23:25 from Paddington, and between 05:07 and 23:42 from Heathrow.

Tickets can be bought on the internet, at the station or on board the train. The standard single fare is £18 and standard return costs £32.


Heathrow has three London Underground stations – one for Terminals 1 and 3, one each at Terminal 4 and Terminal 5.

A single fare to central London costs approximately £4. Purchase a Travelcard and you're covered for London buses and some mainline trains too.

There is big financial incentive not to purchase individual tickets and use an Oyster card or a Travelcard which is a pass giving you unlimited travel for a set time period (day ticket for zones 1-2: £7.20).

If you are travelling 5 or more days in London then a 7 day Travelcard is better value than a Pay As Tou Go Oyster Card.

However, you cannot use Travelcard on the Heathrow Express and Heathrow Connect trains out to Heathrow Airport Luton , Stansted and Gatwick. Airports are well outside the area covered by Travelcard.
