I recommend you dont even think about leaving the airport to be honest. What are the scheduled arrival times of your flights, which airlines, and which terminals ?

If you have four hours between the time your flight arrives from MEX and the next departs to FRA then you will not have time to go to central London. It is an hour on the Underground from the airport and you will need to be at Terminal 5 at least 90 minutes before the flight to Frankfurt departs.

If you are not flying British Airways to T5 then the connection from Terminal 4 to Terminal 5 will take about an hour as well.

Si va a tener dos horas entre vuelo de llegada y salida no tendrá tiempo para ir al centro de Londres. Se trata de una hora en el metro desde el aeropuerto y tendrá que ser en la Terminal 5 por lo menos 90 minutos antes del vuelo a Frankfurt va.

Si no está volando con British Airways a T5 entonces la conexión de la Terminal 4 a la Terminal 5 wil tomar alrededor de una hora también.

You wish. Better hit a pub and get a pint instead of risking to miss your connecting flight.

My advice was going to be bring a good book!!

Don't even contemplate leaving the airport unless it's for some fresh air just outside the front door!
