There are direct National Express busses, or various train routes. Easiest train, with just 1 change, would be the First Capital Connect to Kings Cross then take a Picadilly Line tube train from there. Quickest would be Gatwick Express to Victoria, take a Circle Line tube to Paddington, then Heathrow Express from there.


Scroll down to "Airport to Airport".

As a local to LHR, and previously LGW, I'd say the main factors in your decision should really be the time at which you will be transferring, and how long you've got to make your connection.

I've got a National Express coach between LGW North Terminal and LHR Terminal 5 before that's taken only 40 minutes; during the morning or evening rush hour this time could more than double, during which times I'd take a train. Although the train is a bit more involved with multiple changes, it'll give you a much more reliable connection time during peak hours than sitting in a traffic jam.

Conversely, on weekends, our wonderful railway and underground systems are often subject to engineering works, delays and cancellations so the coach would be your best bet.

I wouldn't go near a taxi personally as it'll get stuck in the same traffic as the coach. Some of the coaches even have free WiFi if you're that desperate to get on the Internet.

Thank you for the response... we will be flying during the week, so that puts the train in the best position

I would always take the Bus. No connections to make, just on the bus, then off the bus at the other end. Max journey for me has been 1 hour 20, min just under 40 minutes
