Train from Heathrow

by compgraph

Can anyone tell me if I can catch a train from Heathrow to St Pancras Station.
Thanks for any info.

Re: Train from Heathrow

by johnmperry

Yes, Picadilly line direct (King's Cross is the same)

Re: Train from Heathrow

Take the Picadilly line to Green Park, then change onto the Victoria Line.

The Piccadilly line tube goes straight from Heathrow to King's Cross/St. Pancras. It'll be £4 unless you have some sort of travelcard or Oyster.

Re: Train from Heathrow

To clarify, the 'train' referred to above is the Underground (Tube). The journey from the airport takes around 40/45 minutes, depending on where you want to end up in London (in your case, Kins Cross/St Pancras).

The simplest route from Heathrow is to stay on the Piccadilly line all the way.

If you mean an overground train, then the answer is 'no'. Trains from Heathrow (the Heathrow Express and the Heathrow Connect) both go to Paddington station, from where you would need bus, taxi or Tube to St Pancras.

Re: Train from Heathrow

by cubsur

The Underground (tube) line is the most direct and least expensive option.

The station of Kings Cross/St Pancras is underneath both main line railway stations of those names.

It's not worth taking the Heathrow Express as, once you arrive in Paddington terminus, there is still a journey on the Underground which still costs £4 and it is a fairly long walk within Paddington to get to the Underground station. Or of course the expensive cab ride!

Travel Tips for London

Walk around!!!! Simple as...

by KilgoreTrout

Walk around!!!! Simple as that....Get off the coach and set off in any direction! When you are in the centre of London (or one of the 'centres') there is always something to see within a few minutes walk.

Walk through one of the many parks, walk across one of the bridges over the Thames.....even (if you must-see below) walk up Oxford Street!! Tricky one...let me think a while.....

Greenwich.

by Maurizioago

Greenwich is a borough of London situated on the right bank of the Thames.

Here you can visit the Royal Observatory; the Queen's House and the National Maritime Museum.

The Royal Observatory was founded by order of king Charles II to study astronomy and to fix longitude. The oldest building there is Flamsteed House, designed by Wren in 1675. Inside the observatory there are many instruments used in the past and a collection of time-telling devices.

The Queen's House; was originally part of a royal palace. It was meant by king James I to be the home of his consort, Anne of Denmark. Its construction started in 1616. It was enlarged in 1662.

The Lord Mayor of London

by BluBluBlu

The first recorded Mayor of London was Henry Fitz-Ailwyn 1189.

The most famous of them all is Dick Whittington, who held office three times, in 1397, 1406 and 1419. The common story of Dick is quite misleading as he was far from the poor serf, but in fact came from a wealthy background.

As for the black cat which helped him found his fortune by ridding the King of the Barbary Coast of a plague of rats, this is probably just another 'urban myth'!

Each year there is the 'Lord Mayors Show' which used to be on the Thames (hence the term floats), and for some years the Lord Mayor rode on horseback. Since 1757 however, following an incident where the Lord Mayor was unseated by a drunken flowergirl, they have traveled in the famous ceremonial gold coach. The coach is only used on this day, the rest of the year it is kept in the Museum of London.

Tipping

by Ash59

You should give a tip in a restaurant, cafe or coffee shop for good service, where the sevice is provided by someone taking your order at the table and then bringing the meal to you. Normally, the tip is between 10 & 15% according to service given, unless it is already added to the bill. If something is added to the bill (it will be shown as a seperate item), if you did not get the service that you think that you were due, you have every right to not pay a tip.

There are one or two exceptions to the tips rule. Basically, if you pay before receiving the meal, then you are not expected to pay a tip, although there may be a tips box near the till, should you wish to do so.

Most taxi drivers expect a tip, although it is not a right. There is no set rule as to how much to give them.

Most people, especially in the larger towns and cities, are usually quite cool towards other people and rarely pass a greeting to a stranger in the streets. They are not being rude, it is just our way until we get to know someone. If you are in the countryside or villages, the attitude changes and you will find a more friendlier atmosphere.

Warm cloths

by elainetph

Portable water boiler, if you need to make milk for infant/ child as most hotels don't supply hot water. If you are going during the months from September onwards, it is advisable to bring along a wind breaker or a warmer overcoat. Weather by end September is cool.... especially after dark.
