    Im flying into Heathrow, and from there ill catch the tube to russel square station which is a short work to both the imperial hotel and the royal national hotel. Its really easy from Heathrow

    The Imperial hotel and the Royal National are really close to each other – maybe 500 metres max?? From what I’ve heard (I’ve only ever flown into heathrow so I haven’t experienced the others) the easiest airport is heathrow because the tube is so accessable there. So easy to get in you just jump on the tube and get off at Russel Square. The tube that leaves from Heathrow is on the same line so there is no changing lines or anything!! both hotels are an easy walk from the station, about a block or two away!!

    Heathrow is the easiest and cheapest in terms of getting to the Contiki hotels. It also has the most flights.

    But Stansted is also an option, but I would make sure you’re getting a good deal if you’re going to fly there, to make up for the hassel and cost of getting into London from there.
