Times to airport

We leave this Sunday!!

Just a last question about travel times to the airport.

1. Approximate time from Covent Garden to Victoria Station (to get the Express) for a 5pm departure.

2. Time from Santuary House (area) to Paddington (to Express) for a 13:00 departure.

We will probably take a cab to the respective stations - just wondering how much time to allow - traffic situations etc.

Thanks to all for your answers. This forum has been the best experience.

Hey London.dreaming, what dates and days of the week are you doing the cab rides? Weekends are generally less crowded traffic-wise, but you never know about roadworks or special events.

I would allow half an hour in both instances but you will probably do it in a lot less.

On number two I am assuming (not clear from your second posting) you are heading to Paddington. The journey to Heathrow by cab would take around 45 minutes.

The Gatwick Express takes half an hour from Victoria and the Heathrow Express 15 minutes, a little more to Terminal 4.

Thank you - that answers my questions. Yes - a cab to the Stations and then the Express to the airports.

Thank you again!!
