Hotels in London
Travelling to London
London is served by numerous airports, the largest being Heathrow
and Gatwick. Both have easy train, bus and taxi options to reach
the city center. Heathrow is serviced directly by the Piccadilly
Line, with journey times of 50 minutes, as well as the Heathrow
Express trains to Paddington Station (duration 15 minutes). From
Gatwick take the Gatwick Express (every 15 minutes, duration: 30
minutes) to Victoria station.
There are also several regional airports, such as Luton, Stansted
and LondonCity Airport, that provide easy access to other areas
of the United Kingdom and Europe. The Stanstead Express runs twice
hourly from Liverpool Street Station and takes about 45 minutes.
Convenient for business people in the banking district (known as
'the City'), the City Airport mainly services short-haul domestic
and European flights and can be reached via bus from Liverpool Street
Station or by shuttle bus from Canary Wharf, with a direct link
to the Docklands Light Railway.
From mainland Europe, it is also convenient to reach London via
train through the Eurotunnel. There are two services on offer: Le
Shuttle, for motorbikes, cars, buses and freight vehicles between
Folkestone and Calais; and the Eurostar, a high-speed passenger
train service from Waterloo Station to Paris, Lille and Brussels.
The M25 motorway carves a wide circle around greater London with
arterial connections to the various motorways that disperse to the
rest of England and Britain. Although motorways pierce the suburbs
quite effectively, traffic is reduced to single and double lane
streets within zone 2 (about 2 miles away from the city's heart).
