"Heathrow airport is situated..." London Transportation Tip by kfh1

London Transportation: 1,863 reviews and 1,877 photos

Heathrow airport is situated on the western part of the city (around 1.5 hrs by the tube, though that tends to vary a bit). There are 4 terminals in the airport. Terminal 1 and 2 are mainly for european travellers while Terminal 3 is for international flights. Terminal 4 is dedicated to British airways and a small number of other airlines.
The Underground seems to be the only viable way to get around London. However, delays are quite frequent on the tube and over-crowding happens every day during peak hours. If you can avoid the morning peak hour (before 9:30), you can also buy a daily travelcard which is a much better deal for travellers.

Bus service might be an alternative in the city centre and most buses go through the city centre anyway.
