Traveling to London


Please check the official British Government website for visa services to see, whether you need a visa and how to obtain one if necessary.


London has 5 public airports: Heathrow, Stansted, Luton, Gatwick, and London City.

Getting to King's College from Heathrow and London City airport

The Heathrow and London City airports are accessible via Transport for London. The most convenient way for Heathrow is to use the Piccadilly line to the Covent Garden subway station. This trip takes about 60-70 minutes. See Google Maps directions on how to get to King's College from Covent garden station. If you are arriving at the City airport, use Transport for London to go either to the Covent Garden or Temple subway station.

Getting to King's College from Stansted, Luton and Gatwick

The Stansted, Luton and Gatwick airports can be reached either by train (see National Rail) from various London train stations or by coach (see National Express). Use the subway (see Transport for London) to get to the Covent Garden or Temple subway station.
