About Heathrow Express

Heathrow Express is a dedicated express passenger rail service in the UK connecting London's Heathrow Airport with Paddington mainline railway station.

The Heathrow Express helps passengers journey between Paddington Station and Heathrow Airport in just 15-21 minutes, substantially less time than it would take using the London Underground metro system or overground bus network. The trains depart from their terminal stations every 15 minutes throughout the day, from around 5 am until 11.30 pm.

Heathrow Express trains offer two ticket types: standard class, aka Express Class, and Business First, with larger, more comfortable seats with tables. Both classes have carriages with increased areas for luggage storage and complimentary WiFi.

As an official partner of Heathrow Express, Wanderu has all of the latest schedules and best prices for bus tickets. Search, compare, and book your trip all in one place!

Heathrow Express Train Guide & FAQs

Yes, Heathrow Express offers WiFi on their trains. Although most trips with Heathrow Express will have WiFi as advertised, some trains might not come equipped with WiFi and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a movie just to play it safe. Heathrow Express WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favorite show.

Heathrow Express does not offer power outlets on their trains at this time. We suggest you charge up your laptop ahead of time and bring a power bank for your phone to extend its battery life for the duration of the trip. And remember - a good book doesn’t require any power.

If you choose to use the will call ticket option with Heathrow Express, please make sure to bring the same credit card you used to purchase the tickets with you when you pick them up.
