Terminal Information - Arriving

Flights from Manchester usually land at Heathrow Terminal 5. Despite being a little further out of the way than the other terminals, it’s extremely well connected. Both the Heathrow Express and the Piccadilly Line (tube) run to the terminal. The fastest way to get into London is the Heathrow Express (it’s cheaper if you book your ticket in advance). The least expensive way to reach the city is via the tube. If you visit London a lot you should consider buying an Oyster card: they cost £5 and make travel in the city more economical.

Practical Information

You don’t need a passport to travel within the UK, but you will need some form of photographic ID: your driving license is fine. We recommend arriving no later than one hour before your scheduled departure time, ideally earlier. Leave extra time if you’re travelling to the airport during rush hour, if your flight is on a weekend, or if it’s the summer holidays. You don’t want your travel plans to be disrupted due to a traffic jam or a long queue at security.
