London has a large underground tube network which weaves between the different areas of the capital city and through to Heathrow. The Heathrow Terminal 5 underground station is located directly below the terminal in the basement.
Whether you are travelling to or from Heathrow using the tube is an easy and effective way to travel with stops along the way at Hounslow and other areas before arriving at Victoria Station.
The underground operates from 5.23am with the first train leaving Heathrow to 11.42pm when the last train departs Heathrow. These trains are at regular intervals throughout the day for your convenience.
It will only cost you around £5.00 for a single one way ticket, which is a much better option than paying for parking at the airport while you enjoy your holiday.
When You Arrive At Heathrow
If you are arriving at Heathrow, after collecting your luggage and making your way into the arrivals terminal you can follow the signs for the underground. The underground tube will be along at regular intervals offering various stations for you to get off.
Victoria Station is the most popular, from here you can catch trains to anywhere within the UK with ease. They also offer a handy luggage storage area at the station where you can safely store your suitcases and bags while you wander around the city before heading off on the next part of your journey.
Going to Heathrow
If you are already on the underground network line then catching a tube to Victoria Station is easy. Trains also regularly arrive at the station where you can get the underground directly through to Heathrow Terminal 5.
All trains have ample space to store your luggage, though they do get busy during peak times. They run all day making them an easy and convenient way to get to and from the airport without having to sit in bumper to bumper traffic on the motorway. They are also an affordable option. If you were to drive your car to the airport and pay for parking, you are looking to pay much more than you will for a train ticket.
