A range of alternative less convenient means of transport to Heathrow Airport include:
Rail transport to Heathrow Airport
The Heathrow Express offers a regular and fast rail service from Central London to Heathrow Airport. The train runs approximately every 15 minutes from London Paddington Station and takes 15 minutes to reach the airport. Heathrow is also served by the London Underground network with three separate underground stations for the different terminals. Although the services are fast and regular you will need to factor in the extra cost and transport of any luggage you may be carrying.
Coach transport to Heathrow Airport
National coach services to Heathrow Airport run from major cities such as Norwich, Birmingham, Cardiff and Brighton. Services are operated by National Express, The Airline and Railair Coaches. Taking the coach to Heathrow Airport involves getting to your local coach station which may involve an extra taxi journey, especially if you are carrying heavy luggage or travelling with children so it is generally not the most convenient option.
Taxi transport to Heathrow Airport
Local and tailored taxi services operate to and from Heathrow Airport running from the different terminals to London and the surrounding area. For ultimate ease and efficiency however, the professional and efficient meet and greet services at Heathrow Airport allow you to enjoy all the benefits of a taxi transfer as well as the peace of mind of knowing your car is parked securely for you and will be driven to the terminal to meet you upon your return to the UK. Meet and greet services available with Airparks include LHR Meet and Greet and the Official Heathrow Valet Parking service.
