Hi, this will be my first time in London and I need some advice on getting from Heathrow airport to Clink Hostel via Tube. The last time I was in the underground subway was 10 years ago, so I don’t remember the process.
I arrive into Heathrow Airport but I am not sure which terminal (its an international flight from US).
I have looked over the official London Tube website and I understand that I will have to take a dark-blue line (Piccadilly) from the airport to my stop at Kings Cross. I think that once I’m on the train, I’ll be fine, but buying the ticket and finding the correct platform that what worries me.
To those who have travelled this way before, there are ticket machines that I can purchase my pass, right? Are all tickets the same (b/c there’re different zones)? Credit card and/or cash are acceptable to purchase ticket with?
How do you know which station/platform and train to get on?
I could take a cab (which will cost way too much) but I kind of want to experience London by foot!
Thanks for the help. Any advice will be appreciated!
