London Heathrow is served by the underground line PICCADILLY, which stops in the 4 Terminal, currently in use, of the subway. Each Terminal has its own stop. Only T2 and T3 have one stop, located in the middle of the two terminals. Recommended for quality / price ratio.

The Piccadilly Line is active every day, including holidays, from the airport from 05: 02 to 23: 45. From London, for the airport, first run at 05: 40 and last run at 00: 22. On Friday and Saturday night service is guaranteed until 03: 00 approx.

The metro takes just under an hour to reach the center. The frequency of the runs is about 10 minutes. The single ticket costs £ 6.00. Whoever wants, can buy the daily ticket TRAVELCARD (ZONE 1-6) for £ 17.20; it is recommended if you want to make several trips by public transport throughout the day. Tickets can be purchased at the many vending machines in the stations and at the airport.


The best solution for those who want to reach the center as soon as possible. Heathrow Express, in fact, is the NO-STOP railway line, which connects London Heathrow with London Paddington Station in just 15 minutes!
