Information from Transport For London
Travelling to/from Heathrow Airport?
The Piccadilly line connects Heathrow Airport to central London and the rest of the Tube system. It is the cheapest way to central London. There are trains every few minutes from approximately 05:03 (05:47 Sundays) to 23:57 (23:30 Sundays). A single ticket into central London (Zone 1) costs £4. Journey time to Piccadilly Circus is about 50 minutes. There are two Underground stations at Heathrow Airport, serving Terminal 1-3 and Terminal 4.
You can also use the Heathrow Express to travel between Heathrow and Paddington station in central London.
Taxis are available at Heathrow Airport 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. There are taxi ranks at all four terminals, as well as taxi information desks inside. The average journey time is approximately 30-45 minutes, and if four or five people travel together the fare could be lower than going by bus or train. Do not travel with anyone offering a `taxi` service inside the terminal – it is likely to be an illegal, unlicensed driver.
Travelling to/from London City Airport?
London City Airport is situated approximately 6 miles (9.5km) east of central London and just 3 miles (4.8km) from Canary Wharf.
Bank 22 mins
Canary Wharf 14 mins
