Arriving in London

Arriving in London

Most Australian’s will arrive in London via Heathrow Airport if they are flying in from Australia. If you are flying in from Europe you may land at any of the 5 London airports, making it important to check your ticket closely. These airports are quite spaced out and the one you fly into will depend on the airline you have chosen and your origin. If you are arriving in London from within the UK then you may arrive by Train, Coach or Bus. The other option for arriving in the English capital is via the Eurostar which travels under the English channel from Paris , Brussels or Amsterdam . The Eurostar arrives at St Pancras International train terminal.

UK Customs

When arriving into London at any airport, seaport or train terminal you are required to go through customs border control where your passport and identity will be checked. When entering border control you must remove any sunglasses and have your passport removed from the holder and ready to hand to the customs officer. If you are traveling as a family you must all travel through border control at the same time.

London Underground

The first thing we recommend you do when arriving in London is to buy an Oyster Card for the London Underground. The underground or “Tube” is a public transport system built under the streets of London that carries an incredible 5 million passengers per day. It is the most convenient way of getting to most of London’s attractions.
