Between Airports

by criscris22

Hello, we have to catch a flight in LHR at 10.00 AM on the 8th August but we are arriving to London City Airport. Does anyone know how can we get there from LHR; via bus, train or tube?
thanks
!

The fastest way by public transport is Docklands Light Railway (DLR) to Tower Hill. Chnage there to the Underground (tube) and take a Circle Line train to Paddington. Walk from the tube to Paddington main line station (about 5 minutes) and then take the Heathrow Express direct to Heathrow. See -
http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk/user/XSLT_TRIP_REQUEST2?language=en. If you put in details of your route it will expand on my answer.

I don't know what time you will arrive at London City Airport but the journey from the airport to Heathrow takes at least 1 hr 20 minutes. You will need to be at Heathrow two hours before your flight, so you will need to leave City Airport by 6am, to allow for connections, etc.

Re: Between Airports

Agree. You will have to make your way from one side of central London across the city, and then far out to the other side.

You need to allow plenty of time for this.

City airport has a page with inter-airport information:

http://www.londoncityairport.com/ToAndFrom/BetweenAirports.aspx

You could take a taxi (or airport transfer......check by googling), but it will be expensive.....it is around 40GBP by taxi from City airport into central London.

thanks for the info, would it be easier from stansted?

Re: Between Airports

Err.. what time are you arriving at London City Airport - if it's the flight from Madrid arriving at 09:15, you would have been cutting it fine for a 10:00 a.m. flight even if you had been arriving at LHR itself! If you booked flights without considering transfer time, I am afraid you are going to have to change one of them.
For the rest, see http://www.jet-centre.com/ToAndFrom/Default.aspx; DLR takes 22 minutes to Bank and you would still have to get onto the tube (Central Line) and change at Holborn onto the Piccadilly line that goes out to LHR.

Re: Between Airports

Stansted is also a considerable distance from Heathrow....opposite sides of a very large urban metropolis.

The major advantage of Stansted is that there is a direct transfer bus to Heathrow:

http://www.londontoolkit.com/travel/heathrow_stansted_transfer.htm

But you really must allow at least 3.5 hours for the transfer, as the coach travels along motorways which are frequently very congested. You should also book your seats online in advance (but allowing time for flight delays, immigration and baggage reclaim....expect to take an hour or so to get out of the airport itself).

Re: Between Airports

by qaminari

Easier in as much as there is a direct coach service, yes - but of course you will still have to make sure to leave enough time between flights.

It may be that you will have to travel to the UK on 7th August, as you will need to be at Heathrow for 8am.

Re: Between Airports

Re: Between Airports

That is by far the best idea.

Glad you haven't booked your flight yet (hope not?). :-)

Hollywood Handprints??

by ratherton

Until my last visit to Leicester Square, I’d never noticed these bronzed handprints in the pavement. However, there are quite a few of them in a row outside the front of the Odeon. I’ve no idea how many there are or when they started to appear, I just know they are there. I do know the pavement ‘stars’ in Hollywood cost the celebrity about $15,000 when they are “honoured” but I’ve no idea how much these cost. Maybe it’s another money-making scheme by the esteemed mayor, Ken Livingstone.

Royal Waterloo Hospital

by Mariajoy

I love the way London constantly makes new from old... this former hospital for women and children in Waterloo (1905-1936) is now a university but the old facade hasn't changed. What do I miss most when I am away from London? The newness and the oldness :)

How not to look like a tourist...

by clle44

...and avoid getting mugged at the same time!

Yes, muggings are known to take place in London, and I would recommend NOT looking like a tourist as a way to prevent these attacks. There are a few simple ways to 'melt in' with the local population.

1) NEVER wear white socks! White socks are only worn by Americans and athletes. If you don't look like an athlete, well, you must be an American.

2) FANNY PACKS SCREAM 'TOURIST'! As do backpacks. Purchase a large over-the-shoulder bag and keep it in front of you at all times (so you always see what is going on.) Make sure there isn't a large opening at the top for evil hands to get in. A zippable bag is best - and don't forget to remove the dangly zipper piece so as to make it more difficult for theives to get in.

3) Shorts. I dunno why, but Londoners do not wear shorts. So thus to avoid looking like a tourist, you shouldn't either.

4) Canadian patches sewn on clothing can mean only one thing - you are a tourist and an American one at that. Londoners (as well as residents of cities worldwide) are WELL wise to this trick. They'll quiz you on Canada just to make you squirm. Adopt a policy of don't-ask-don't-tell when it comes to your nationality and political affiliations and you'll get on fine in London (and anywhere else in the world.)

5) Large tourist maps are awkward as well as make you a target for ne'er-do-wells. Pick up an A-Z (zed) and you'll never get lost again!

This will keep you safe (London is a very safe place, but tourists are an easy target anywhere in the world), as well as providing a shield against any anti-tourist attitudes those people in London may have.

Never leave home without it.

OK London is not my favourite city, especially for a beer but it is possible to track down a decent pub selling a decent pint.
This book will point you in the right direction, usually.
