I am trying to get to Heathrow airport for 6am on Tuesday, May 25th. Does anyone know how I can find the cheapest means of travel?
Agreed. The first train from Folkestone Central leaves at 0449 and doesn't get to London Charing Cross until 0633, so that's out.
The last train on weekdays is at 2256 and will get you to St Pancras at 2351.
The first National Express coach doesn't leave Folkestone until 0655.
National Express has a 1900 departure from Folkestone but that involves nearly an hour's wait in Dover. and gets to London at 2220. Much cheaper than the train but a possibly dismal journey.
An overnight stop will be less expensive and less worry than a 4am pickup and fretting about whether that would actually arrive on time!
