London Transporation

Jump to last reply

I will be visiting London for the 1st time in April. Arriving on a Sunday morning around 8:00am. Departing on Wednesday at 2:30pm. Staying literally 2 blocks from Paddington Station.

As I have read the many forum topics and even the London Tube website, there is confusion.

I can easily take the Picadilly/ District line from Heathrow to Paddington. And do the reverse. My plan is to buy Oyster Card and load with 30 GBP which should take care of my daily tube usage (figuring that there is the daily max as I read it. All my travel will be Zone 1) and then add another 10 GBP for airport extension.

Is my judgement sound in how to approach my transport needs or are there any suggestions which might prove more beneficial. Time to / from airport is not crucial given what I see is the difference of Heathrow Express versus normal tube from time / cost perspective.
