    Hi Carmen

    2 Options for you.


    Heathrow Express is expensive (about 21 GBP one way). Heathrow Connect runs on the same line, a little cheaper and much slower as it stops everywhere along the way.

    Getting on the tube is just as easy for you and much cheaper. I would pick up an Oyster card.


    Check Transport for London's website to plan each journey:

    Hope this helps.

    I would take Heathrow Connect Paddington (PAD) to Heathrow (HXX) train to Paddington and then walk over. It's really cheap and very, very efficient!

    Hi Carmen, if you are on a budget, take the tube (i.e. the Underground) to Gloucester Road London Underground Station , then get on the 49 bus north. That comes out at the bottom of Kensington Gardens , at the top of Gloucester Road (let it turn left first, then get off at the big hotel and walk into the gardens). ALternatively, take the Paddington Express to London Paddington Railway Station (PAD) , then jump on the tube to Bayswater and walk. I would go for the first option, although it takes a little more time to sit on the tube than the Paddington Express - it does take ages to walk to the terminal at Heathrow Airport . Lastly, if you wanted to take a taxi from Paddington, that would be the easiest - just go to the queue of black cabs at the side of the station!

    There's a rail station at Heathrow Airport , from there catch a train to London Paddington Railway Station (PAD) . Once you're at Paddington head to the Underground and take the District Line towards Wimbledon Railway Station (WIM) or Circle Line towards Hammersmith (H&C Line). Jump off at Kensington , it'll take about 30 minutes.

    You can take the Piccadilly Line straight from Heathrow Airport (any terminal) to South Kensington , and then it's pretty much about how you want to move (bus, walking) from there!

    If you want to get quickly to your destination and are single, I would recommend taking the Heathrow Express, which takes you to London Paddington Railway Station (PAD) and then take a cab, which is a short ride to Kensington Gardens. If you are traveling with a family, it may be cheaper and less hassles to take a cab from the airport.

    As long as I have few enough bags that I can hold on to them simultaneously, I would take the tube (London Underground). Check Google Maps, but you'll basically be taking the Piccadilly Line into London, and maybe changing lines once to get to Kensington Gardens.

    If you have too much luggage for that, a pre-booked cab (not a black cab you hail down on the street), is probably your next best option.

      Thank you for your help. We are thinking of taking the tube. Not much luggage with us. Was looking into hiring a car it was very expensive thru Viator. Any suggestions? · (0 likelikes)

      We had rented a car for a road trip around the UK, but returned it before entering London at the end of the trip, because the traffic in the city makes it a pain to drive. Presumably you're going to spend some time in the city, in which case you will inevitably be traveling by tube and should get a Visitor Oyster card anyway. Every time I fly to the UK to attend college, I have 2 suitcases, and can make it to central London on the tube just fine. · (0 likelikes)

    Take the Piccadilly line (tube) to Knightsbridge and walk. Don't bother with the (more expensive) Heathrow Express, which goes to Paddington.

    The London Underground takes you almost straight there. It'll take an hour or so, and it's very cheap (in comparison to anything else) - probably less than $10. A taxi will cost probably over $150.

    Are you renting a car? If so, find out what time of day you are arriving in order to avoid traffic on the motorways. One possible way is to hire a driver. Just give them the address and they will get you there. Heathrow Airport also offers shuttles to some places so you could always find out if they have on going towards Kensington. In my opinion, the best option is to take the Tube. It's not a terribly long ride, and if it's your first time in London it can be quite exciting.
