I'm flying from Heathrow Terminal 5 in March. Any advice? I'm new to Lewes. Taxis seem rather expensive. Is there a cheaper alternative?

There is a regular coach that connects the airports. Stops at all the terminals. Google it. Very efficient. So train to Gatwick then coach to Heathrow.

Yes, agree. Coach between the airports best way.

Or B&H bus #28/29/29b to Old Steine and then National Express from Pool Valley.

Head to Brighton and get the coach from there and save yourself any of the stress of trains.

Thanks for your very helpful responses. I'll now go and Google everything!

I can't believe it! Positive helpful responses with no trolling. This is not the Lews forum I've come to know. I've left some spelling mistakes and grammatical errors in for effect and to feed the fire.
Bring it on.

I always use a taxi service 01273 581 581 based in Peacehaven - over 12 years of frequent, cheap and utterly reliable service.

Flightcrew seem to train it to Clapham Junction, crossover to the suburban platform and take the fast train to Feltham. From there there is a choice of buses – depending on your terminal. It's very very cheap way. The coach from Gatwick will cost you £25 each way!

You can ring round for competitive taxi quotes - if there's more than one traveling, it doesn't cost much more than train/coach and much more convenient. Of course now there's also uber!

Another way is train to Victoria then circle line to West Brompton. If you change to Piccadilly line at this station to get to Heathrow then all you have to do is cross the platform. Bear in mind that you'll have to cart all your luggage down the steps to Victoria underground. Whichever way you do it, in my experience of travelling to Heathrow, and I've tried loads of different ways, I'd allow three hours door to door if using public transport.

I find the parking at Heathrow pretty reasonable if booked in advance. Probably cheaper than a taxi both ways! If you don't wish to drive then the National Express is great.

I drove to Heathrow (as a passenger) last week and we had difficulty finding the correct car park - other car drivers are not very forgiving when someone doesn't know the way. As a woman of a certain age (!) doing the trip on my own I decided that driving was not for me. The bus from Brighton seems to be the best option, although it leaves too early for me to get a bus from Lewes. Any recommendations for a friendly taxi driver to take me from Lewes to Brighton?

Taxi fares are not expensive. Ask licensed independent cabbies at the station. They will always do you a deal....

The Google Maps "transit" option is now pretty much on point. Enter your desired arrival time and it will give you all the public transport options from your front door.
Or use Gatwick.
