London is served by multiple airports, including:

  • Luton

If travelling from Gatwick, the Gatwick Express rail service runs direct to Victoria station, from which it’s just two stops eastbound on the District and Circle lines to Westminster tube station.

If travelling from Heathrow, the Heathrow Express rail service runs into Paddington station. From here, travel three stops eastbound on the Bakerloo line to Baker Street station, then change to Jubilee line and ride three stops southbound to Westminster tube. For a longer journey without changes, you can instead travel nine stops southbound/anticlockwise on the Circle line to Westminster tube.
