How to get from the Airports

There are 5 main airports in London Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, City and Luton Airports.
 

By Train, Tube and Bus

Here is a good web site to check your journey by Train, Tube and Bus
http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tube/
(Just be careful from Heathrow and don't use the Heathrow Express, this costs 15 more and is slower)
 
The London Tube, Bus and Overground Train system uses a smartcard called Oyster Card. You can prepay your fare and it is cheaper than buying a printed ticket for each journey. You can buy it at any tube station and there is a deposit of 3. There are some travel agents that can sell it. www.tfl.gov.uk
 

By Taxi

Basically don't bother, they are expensive and take longer. But here is a web site for them

Piccadilly Underground Line to Central London, change at Green Park onto the Jubilee Line to London Bridge Station and get the over ground train to New Cross or New Cross Gate.

(If you are searching the trip from Heathrow to Goldsmith on the journey planner at www.tfl.gov.uk make the journey search from "Hounslow East" to SE14 6NW, this is the stop before Heathrow but if you search from Heathrow to London it will take you on the Heathrow Express, this cost 15 more and is slower.)

Take the train from the station in the airport to East Croydon station. Change there and take the train to New Cross Gate.

The journey time is about one hour.

How to got to Harrow from the Airports

 
 

Northwick Park Tube station on the Metropolitan line is the nearest station to the University, where the course will be. Kenton Tube station on the Bakerloo line is one minute from the Comfort Inn where some people are staying, But the Bakerloo line is very slow and Northwick Park station is only 10 minutes walk to the hotel. So I recommend going to Northwick Park Tube station.

 
 
 

Luton Airports

There are lots of ways to get from Luton Airport to Northwick Park Tube station but the eases and cheapest is to book a place on the "Easybus" (This is a new serves, so I have not tried it my self, but it looks good) which you get at the bus stop just out side the airport, (literally as you come out of the doors you will see the buses).
The "Easybus" goes every 20 minutes through out the day from 04.00 till 00.20 and takes one hour to get to Baker St, which is just north of the centre of London. From the bus stop it is a one minutes walk to Baker St Tube station where you can get the Metropolitan line to Northwick Park. From Baker St most of the Metropolitan trains go north. But NOT ALL trains stop at Northwick Park so make shore you get a train to Uxbridge or Watford. There are TV's monitors with train information in the ticket hall and on all the platforms, and it will take about 20 minutes.

By Train

There is a free shuttle bus that operates from out side the airport to "Luton Airport Parkway" train station between 0500 and 2300. The journey time is about 10 minutes and the bus is suitable for wheelchair users.
 
You can get a train to West Hampstead were it is a 7 minutes walk to the West Hampstead Tube station on the Jubilee line. Go one stop south to Finchley Road, were you can get the Metropolitan trains going north. But NOT ALL trains stop at Northwick Park so make shore you get a train to Uxbridge or Watford. The hole trip should take less than one hour.
 

Heathrow

By Taxi

There are hundreds of Black Cabs (which charge with a meter) from out side the airport Terminal and they will cost approximately 45 and take about 30 Minutes. (Which I think is criminal). It is very unlikely the driver will take Dollars or anything other than pounds but some will take credit cards.
You can book (24 hours in advance) a mini cab (taxi) on the web http://www.skyportcars.com/ and that say 48 and it will take 45 minutes. They will take any currency but not credit cards. (This is NOT the cheapest and it MAY be better to get one at the airport or EMAIL ME and I can book a local company)
There are several money exchanges in all of the airport Terminals and I have phoned American Express and they have an office open 24 hours a day in Terminal 3.
 

By Tube

There are very regular tubes from Heathrow, which is at the end of the line; so all trains will be going in to town. Change at Acton Town, which is the ninth stop. You will have to go up and down the stares to get a train to Uxbridge on the Piccadilly line. Change at Rayners Lane, again up and down the stares to get the trains towards Baker Street on the Metropolitan line and make shore the train is stopping at Northwick Park.
 

By Train

There is an express train (15) that takes 15 minutes to Paddington, were you can get the Bakerloo line to Kenton Tube station, which is the nearest to the Comfort Inn. There are two problems though; one is it is a 15 minutes walk from the arrivals gate to the train and that Bakerloo line is very slow.
So I think in will take about an hour ether way but the tube will cost 5 and the train 20.
 

From Stansted

By Train

The train station is just two minutes from the arrivals gate and the train goes to Liverpool Street station where you can get the Metropolitan line directly to Northwick Park, NOT ALL trains stop at Northwick Park so make shore you get a train to Uxbridge or Watford (if necessary you can get any Metropolitan line trains Wembley Park and change there). The whole Trip should take 1 and a half hours.
 

From Gatwick

By Train and Tube

There is an express train that takes 30 minutes every 15 minutes to Victoria station. If you get the Victoria line and change at Green Park to the Jubilee North and change at Finchley Road, were you can get the Metropolitan trains going north to Northwick Park. But NOT ALL trains stop at Northwick Park so make shore you get a train to Uxbridge or Watford. The whole Trip should take 1 and a half hours.
