As the only airport in London, we are ideally located for those travelling to and from London and Greater London. With great public transport links and road connections on our doorstep, central London is no more than 30 minutes away.
If you’re planning on using public transport, a Visitor Oyster card is a great idea. Top up your Oyster card it works on trains and buses. On the trains, you just tap the card when you embark on your journey and tap again at the end to pay.
If you are arriving by road, we’ve directions for getting here and information on airport car parks too.
