Heathrow Airport connects to many major cities across the world, as well as inland destinations including Manchester and Edinburgh. If you’re heading into London for meetings, from inside or outside of the UK, it is likely that you are looking for the most cost efficient base for your business break.
Although central London hotels can be a luxurious option, keep the cost low and look at cheap alternatives near to your inbound or outbound terminal. Looking online to book Heathrow hotel rooms will enable you to secure the best rate in advance for your stint in the capital.
Heathrow Airport is well connected to central London via the Heathrow Express. With departures every 15 minutes, the Heathrow Express is the fastest way of reaching the city, taking just 15 minutes to arrive at London Paddington.
From here, the Hammersmith & City and Circle tube lines run directly from platforms 15 and 16. The new underground WiFi system means that you are able to catch up on emails and do a little research while you are making your way to your meeting location.
Whether you are staying for one night or more on business, getting back to your base after work is simple, via the Heathrow Express or various other services. Should you miss the Express, the Heathrow Connect also runs to and from Paddington.
Local buses from 6:00hrs to 22:30hrs give a third public transport option for those who want to avoid paying black cab fares. Check online for the latest bus timetables for more information.
Evenings at your Heathrow Airport hotel will definitely keep your eye on the ball. Choose an accommodation basis which doesn’t require that you pay for internet access while you are out attending appointments in central London.
Pay per use WiFi can often be the most cost efficient option during business stays. This is especially so if you are using offices and transport internet connections during the day. Catching up on emails and finishing that report for your impending deadline doesn’t have to mean paying over the odds for a consistent service that you have no use for.
Every business pro has to hang up their jacket and lanyard at some time during the day. En suite facilities are definitely a must to help you unwind after a hard day of graft. Some budget hotels at Heathrow Airport are located close to eateries, ensuring that you get a good dinner on your return.
Relax with a glass of wine, pick your food from a menu and let your dinner come to you – it is definitely essential to find the little luxuries in life when you are away from home and working all hours.
London isn’t known for its sociable business scene, but if you do find yourself invited to any events, you are never too far away to ‘show your face’ and tally up some business brownie points.
