Travel from Heathrow

The Hotel is a 20 minute drive from Heathrow International Airport should you wish to hire a car.  If you wish to travel from Heathrow to London Paddington, trains leave from Terminal 5 ("T5") every twenty minutes and take about 20 minutes.  However, unless you are flying in to T5, leave 30 minutes to travel between terminals.  The Heathrow Express website will have all the timetable and price information you need specific to your journey. From London Paddington, take either Hammersmith and City Line or the Circle Line to Hammersmith. If you need to minimise travel time from the airport, we would recommend you book an executive car for transfers from Heathrow to the Hotel (details of Taxis below).
