Transfers to/from London Heathrow Airport

Please allow 45-60 minutes after your plane has landed for clearing Customs and Immigration and reaching the Arrivals hall, where I will meet you. The journey into central London generally takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the time of day. Services range from a saloon car for up to three passengers, to a minibus available for groups of up to seven people. The price includes waiting time of up to 1.5 hours from the scheduled arrival time of your flight. If the flight is delayed significantly, a surcharge per hour of waiting time is payable.

With more time to explore, you could take a half or full day tour of London as part of your transfer journey.

London with Heathrow transfer (half day)

With just half a day to spare, you won’t be able to explore places in detail but there will be time to get out of the car to take photographs and to discover a little about the various sights. You will take in the Houses of Parliament and learn how the UK’s parliamentary system works and Westminster Abbey, the venue for coronations, royal weddings and funerals and the resting place of monarchs.

At Buckingham Palace, you may be lucky enough to see the Changing of the Guard. In the City of London, the historic heart of the capital, the main attraction is the Tower of London, which has borne witness to some of the most dramatic events in British history. It has been used as a mint, an observatory, a zoo and a place of execution. The main exhibit in the castle is the Crown Jewels, the world’s most magnificent set of royal regalia which are still used by HM The Queen at important ceremonies. Nearby is St Paul’s Cathedral, a site of Christian worship for 1400 years. The present church was completed in 1710 and was the venue for the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.

As with all tours, the itinerary is flexible and can be tailored to your own interests. A detailed tour of attractions such as the Abbey (allow about 1.5 hours) or the Tower (allow at least 2 hours) can be included but these will not leave much time to see other sights.

London is in one direction while heading west we are but a stone’s throw from the Thames Valley, with the picturesque riverside towns and villages of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire.

Prices will be based from a start point in central London. Pick up point – Your guide will meet you at an agreed meeting place, usually at your hotel or apartment. If you are interested in a tour; please send your details on the right and we will be in touch shortly with your costs.

An authentic and heart warming tour!

“If you are looking for an authentic experience – look no further. The guides are well versed, attentive, and care primarily for your experience. I have met few guides who go out of their way and genuinely care about their guests. Highly recommend!”
