Getting to London
London Heathrow (LHR) is the biggest international airport near the South Kensington Campus. You can take the Tube (Piccadilly Line) directly from Heathrow terminals to South Kensington. A faster but more expensive option is to take the Heathrow Express from the airport to Paddington Station and then Tube or taxi. Taxis and hire cars are also available at the airport but are a relatively expensive option. Other London area airports (in approximate decreasing order of convenience) include London City (LCY), Gatwick (LGW), Luton (LTN) and Stansted (STN).
