Train from London to Chichester

We're attending Goodwood in September and will be landing at Heathrow early am on 14th September. Can we catch a train to the main station and get another train to Chichester. I would welcome advice. I also heard there is a fast train we could take but I don't know what it's called. I do like to get all the advice I can before taking a trip. All suggestions welcome.

Hi, your fast train is Heathrow Express from Heatrow airport to London Paddington Station. Take Bakerloo line underground train to Waterloo.

Then an overground train to Chichester (appr 2h20min).

Check ojp.nationalrail.co.uk/en/s/timetable/times for exact times.

The easiest - and quickest - way is to take the bus to Woking then train to Chichester via Havant. Total cost even if bought on the day is under £30

There is no need to go anywhere near London let alone use the Heathrow Express
