London, home to the iconic Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and London Eye, attracts millions of visitors yearly. Also known for its up-and-coming cuisine, grand red double-decker buses and wonderful museums, London is an excellent destination for families, couples, friends and solo travellers alike.
When travelling from London Heathrow to the city centre, you have five options: a taxi, the train, the London Underground – including the new Elizabeth Line, or the bus. Taking a Heathrow to Central London airport taxi is always the most convenient option, as taxis provide 24/7 door-to-door services, taking 45 minutes to reach the city. Your fastest option from Heathrow to central London would be to take the Heathrow Express train, which only takes 15 minutes to Paddington Station. Alternatively, you can take the London Underground, taking 45 minutes to reach Paddington station on the Picadilly Line or 35 minutes on the new Elizabeth Line. Finally, the cheaper alternative would be to take the National Express coach bus which takes around 1 hour to Downtown London.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to London at the same price as a regular taxi.
