    London underground ticket prices

    Those of you that know or live in London, how much would it cost to get from Euston to Heathrow and how long is the journey. Also how regular are the trains?

    Thanks

    It'll take just under an hour or so and you have to change trains

    £4.50pp, trains every 2-3 or so minutes (check the front of the train, different trains go to different terminals)

    Because that's the price for travelling through zone 1.
    1 stop or 5, makes no difference.

    Confused now - who said what, to who, & why?:thinking:

    yea, im not quite sure what going on.

    Waterloo to southwark? thats ~ a 200m walk, the person at the ticket stand should have told you that, robbing ****!

    the price is £4.50 because Heathrow is in zone 5 making it more expensive from zone 1.

    take the tube rather than the heathrow express, its not worth the extra £16.50 each way to save 10 mins (and actually you'll lose more than 10 mins changing at paddington and waiting for your train)

    OPs journey is simple, but a general word of warning, sometimes the tfl journey planner seems to be ran by a lobotomised monkey and will send you miles out of your way

    Just buy an oyster card. Only cost £1.80 each then.

    I'd say Oyster is probably going to be cheaper, but look on the TFL website for exact prices. Also if you have a rail card then you can use that too for a cheaper fare - well I know you can on Oyster....

    Option 1:
    Get the tube from Euston to Paddington which is Hammersmith & City Line/Circle Line and then get a Heathrow Connect train from Paddington to Heathrow.
    Option 2:
    You could walk to St Pancras and then just get the Piccadilly line direct to Heathrow too. This would be a Zone 1-6 journey which being a single would be £4.50cash or £4.20 Oyster. This way would take 1hr14mins though

    £3 each for an oyster card if you dont already have one

    with an oyster it would be £2.40 off peak or £4.20 peak - Monday to Friday from 0630 to 0930 and from 1600 to 1900 so it depends what time you're travelling and if you're making a return journey and at what time that return journey would be.

    if you will be travelling off peak on both journeys then it will be slightly cheaper to buy an oyster. (£3 for the card + 2 x £2.40 = £7.80 vs £9 cash fare)

    if you will be travelling at peak on either journey it will work out more expensive to buy an oyster.
