Travel Time from Heathrow to London City Airport

Travel Forums Europe Travel Time from Heathrow to London City Airport

I have to change airports from London Heathrow to London City Airport later this month. How long would that take? I have around 3-4 hours to catch the next flight (it is actually a connecting flight from London to Madrid)

Also, what would be the cheapest way to go to London City Airport from Heathrow? I read that there is an express train from Heathrow to Paddington which costs 14 pounds! That is expensive, I think! :-)

Thanks in advance for your advice!

get piccadilly line to green park station - change to jubilee line eastwards towards geenwich/stradford and get off at Canning Town. From here take an overground Silverlink train to City airport.

you can do that journey for the cheapest possible fare (I think 90 pence) - which would allow you to get on the tube and change the trains to your final destination as there is no ticket control at City Airport station.

Thanks a lot! Just have one more question, how much time will it take to go through that route?

about 1 hours - you are travelling from the one end of town to another
