Transfers to Heathrow
If you travel for the first time in London, the transfer from Central London to Heathrow Airport should not be a problem for you. There is a wide array of transport options and there is no better alternative. After all, it all depends on your needs and the compromises you are ready to make for comfort and speed. Some of the most reliable and fastest transport alternatives are rail based and you can choose from the roomy, fast, but expensive Heathrow Express to the more crowded, yet cheaper London Underground. The transfers by car are much more comfortable, but they take longer because of the traffic congestion. So, every means of transportation has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Taxis to and from Heathrow AirportHeathrow Airport features four terminals and the terminal that you are travelling to makes the difference. Terminals 3 and 1 are situated in the centre of the Heathrow Airport, so they offer the best transport options from Central London. Terminals 5 and 4 are located further from the centre and around the perimeter. At the same time, they are located far from each other. They might have an impact on your transfer option. For example, it might take you longer to get from your destination to the airport. In order to get from Terminal 4 to Terminal 5 or vice versa, you will have to take the Heathrow Central or Heathrow Express Service free of charge. They run every 15 minutes. Terminal 4 is not served by Heathrow Express, but there is the Heathrow Express shuttle offering transfer between Heathrow Central Station and Terminal 4. Moreover, since the Heathrow Connect Service stops at Terminals 3 and 1 in Heathrow Central, you have to take the Heathrow Express train from there to get to Terminals 5 and 4. Finally, Terminals 3 and 1 are visited by all National Express coaches, while Terminals 5 and 4 are visited only by a couple of buses.
