By Underground from Heathrow Airport Terminal 1,2,3 or 4 on Piccadilly Line O/W ticket 4GBP or buy 1day TravelCard, if you want to use it later in central London.
The journey would take less than an hour.

If you dont have much luggage, the tube is a good choice.

You can take the train or the coach. www.londontoolkit.com/travel/heathrow.htm
has details. The coach will take you directly to Victoria coach station, which is probably more convenient in your case. The journey takes around 50 minutes, but may take much longer if there is traffic congestion.

Travel Tips for London

Take a run through Hyde Park,...

by KPajonas

Take a run through Hyde Park, and enjoy the beautiful English gardens you'll find along the way. Look around and soak up the scenery. Also, go for afternoon tea at any fine British establishment. Go shopping on Oxford Street. For true British entertainment, go to Speaker's corner in Hyde Park on any Sunday morning. Watching the change of seasons in Hyde Park from winter to spring to summer. Pay a pound for a chair and sit and relax in Hyde Park for while. The best thing about being in London is being surrounded by beautiful accents all day, everyday.

Keeping costs down in London

by Wowmoment

In London buy an Oyster card for travel by tube and bus - much cheaper and saves queuing for tickets all the time.

Loads of places to go for free museums; churches etc, check out costs before you go. Costs nothing to have a pic with a policeman, soldier etc.

A place to see real history is to walk round historic areas for free. The walk on this link should not disappoint, it covers a lot of architecture used in historical films. Don't be confused by the name Temple, it is a legal not religious term here! http://www.londontourist.org/walk%20three.html

Loads of places to sit and eat a picnic so buy sandwiches for lunch, Marks and Spencer + Pret a Manger are excellent quality.

Ask for tap water in restaurants and if you are not too hungry just have a starter and dessert for dinner, stand for no nonsense from waiters, you are paying! Won Kei at 41 Wardour Street, London is a MUST, very reasonable as are many of the other Chinatown eateries.

Another place I have eaten superbly well is Bistro 1, 75 Beak Street in Soho. A modest establishment with friendly staff and the very best value, http://www.bistro1.co.uk/

Buy tickets for shows at the official booth in Leicester square for later in the day, huge discounts. Beware of fakes offering so called discounts to the unwary.

Plan to see London area by area, its quite big and time can be wasted if you don't appreciate this. A little planning will save loads of time.

Leadenhall Market

by yooperprof

Coming around the corner from the Lloyd's Building you might not be expecting to see a wonderfully preserved piece of mid-Victorian design - but "Voila" - there it is. The Leadenhall Market is a remnant of Dickensian London, and is still a popular place for foodsellers during the week. (Weekends, not so much!) It was designed by Sir Horace Jones (1819-1887) and was opened in 1880. Recently it was beautifully restored.

Social Etiquette on the Tubes

by Senoritasmile

It pains me to write this but it's only fair unsuspecting visitors to London should know.

When travelling on the tubes;
DO NOT try to be friendly ( You will only attract real Loons and everyone else will become uncomfortable and embarrassed)
DO NOT engage in conversation ( on entering a carriage, we all lose the power of speech - its best you do the same)
DO NOT smile (everyone will think you're a Loon)

However, as you're leaving the carriage feel free to joyously shout 'Have a nice day y'all' or 'God save the Queen' or some such frivolity. I'm sure it will raise a few smirks ;-)

Happy Travelling

T-Shirts & Jackets

by luke850

Obviously, what you bring to London will depend on when you come. In the winter, jackets and thermals are in order. Whereas in summer the weather is usually warm and comfortable, and you can wear shorts and T-shirt. I would advise that you bring a waterproof coat and an umbrella, no matter when you come, just in case. You can get all your toiletries and medical supplies here in London, so there's no need to bring them with you. However, prices can be quite steep over here, so you may decide to bring them from home. There are so many sights to photograph in London, so you should definately bring your equipment with you. As with toiletries, films can be expensive compared with what you're probably used to, so you should bring these with you. The closest beach to London is about 1 hour away, so you probably won't be needing any beach gear.
