A popular choice with business travellers to London is the Park Grand London Heathrow Hotel, which is conveniently situated close to the airport and well connected to London. Some of the best options to choose for travel from Heathrow are:

The London Underground: One of the most cost-effective ways of getting from Heathrow to Central London is the London Underground. The only possible reason not to opt for travel on the Tube would be if you have excessive baggage, due to which you are not able to manage the luggage effectively on the escalators or stairs. The average time for a journey from Heathrow is 50-60 minutes with a train departing every 5 minutes during peak hours and every 9 minutes at off peak hours and on the weekend.

The Heathrow Express: The quickest and most efficient way to get from the airport to Central London is using the premium dedicated airport train ‘The Heathrow Express’. It takes only 15 minutes to get from from Heathrow to Paddington Station and runs every 15 minutes. However, for those not staying in the Paddington, Marble Arch or Bayswater, Marble Arch area a better option would be the London Underground.

The Heathrow Connect: The Heathrow Connect is another cheaper alternative to the Express that takes approximately 30 minutes to get you to Paddington. The train departs every half an hour and is much more comfortable with ample carriage and luggage space and definitely cheaper too!

Travel by Coach: The National Express Coach service from Heathrow to London Victoria is another option to choose from. They are just a bit costlier than the Underground They run 100 services in the day and is the only direct connection between Heathrow and other airports (very useful for those who need to catch a flight from another airport). They also offer a Hotel Hoppa service that serves 21 hotels in and around Heathrow at a very affordable price.

EasyBus Service: There is the Easybus Service a low-cost mini-bus service, which travels from Heathrow to London Shepherds Bush/Waterloo. There is however limited luggage facilities and no hotel pick-ups or drops as it only a standard bus service.
