heathrow to morning crescent

We arrive at Heathrow and need to get to morning crescent. We are going to get on the Piccadilly line to the northern line then to morning crescent.. How much is this going to cost?.

Where in route do we purchase our 7 day travel cards--with the picture.

I am assuming it is Euston station but if there is a closer one on our route wouldn't our 1st tickets be cheaper???? meaning the ticket we need to buy to get to the national rail station to get the travel card.

Just a little thought: wouldn't it be a nice gesture to have the national rail office at Heathrow so tourists are not so confused. Or is this just a way of generating more $$$$ from the visitors to the UK.

Mornington Crescent perhaps?

And no, it is not a way of getting more £££s (we don't use $$$s), it is because there is no ordinary railway station at Heathrow.

We do, however, use please and thank you.

They could equally have one at Sault Ste. Marie, since neither place has a UK national rail station. Heathrow is a tube station.

Alternatively the company that runs the 241 deals could remove the loophole that allows travellers to use travelcards bought at a railway station inside London, that would also avoid confusion perhaps ?

Finally, confusion would be minimised if tourists bothered to get the actual name of where they are going correct.

Slightly unpleasant comment.

I'll tell you what would be a really nice gesture. it would be if visitors to the UK who come on this site could be bothered to use the correct names of places they are asking for help about.

You are perfectly welcome to get Travelcards at Heathrow if you wish.

However, they won't be available on the National Rail ticket stock that you need to take advantage of 2FOR1. Far from being ripped off, as your tone implies, you are actually being allowed to take advantage of a loophole which states that London Travelcards issued on National Rail stock are good for the National Rail London 2FOR1 promotion - even if you have no intention of ever setting foot on a National Rail train.

No National Rail trains serve Heathrow, so there is no need for an office there. This is why you pay the extra to travel from Heathrow (a whole £5.70, oh whoopie-doo, promise we won't spend it all at once).

If you're really paring the cheese, you can get a bus from Heathrow to Feltham rail station for £2.40 - see

heathrowairport.com/transport-and-directions…

Feltham is the nearest National Rail station to Heathrow and you can buy tickets there that qualify for 2-4-1.

As explained above and elsewhere on this forum, the 2-4-1 deals are intended to attract rail passengers from elsewhere in the UK outside London to travel by train. It's just foreign visitors' good fortune that they're also able to buy tickets that qualify.

Please bear in mind that many London attractions are entirely free, including all the great national museums (British Museum, National Gallery, V&A, Tate, Science Museum, Natural History Museum...). Basic running costs are met by the British taxpayer. But there are donation boxes and I would invite you to consider a contribution if you visit.

Incidentally, you should look up Mornington Crescent on Wikipedia.

Better still, play the game, that'll keep you occupied on your way into town. I'm sure someone could sell you a rule book :-)

And feel free to leave your $$$ bills at the museum, they take them as well
