Transfers from Heathrow to Leighton Buzzard

Hi all

I am after some recommendations on how to get from Healthrow airport to Leighton buzzard.

We arrive on the 18 Oct at 630am and were think of getting a transfer to LB. We thought about catching the train there but we are travelling with our 4 yr old daughter and were thinking it may be too hard with her and our luggage.

Can anyone recommend a company that does airport transfers outside the London city area.

Thanks

If you're travelling out of London, it's usually preferable to get a car from your destination to come and pick you up. I've no specific suggestions, but you could try Googling "Leighton Buzzard taxis" (or "Milton Keynes taxis").

You could go half way and get a private hire car or taxi to Euston, then get the train from there; thus not having to use the underground in the rush hour. The trains from Euston to Leighton Buzzard are fast, comfortable likely to be fairly empty (at the time you're travelling).

Apologies for Post No.3 - an inadvertent repetition due to a computer glitch.

An alternative by public transport would be to take the coach (=bus) from Heathrow to Watford Junction where you can pick up the trains from Euston to Leighton Buzzard. The timetable is here:

greenline.co.uk/uploadedFiles/Services/South…

For the train timetable, see www.londonmidland.com

This is probably the cheapest option, as well as avoiding central London. While it's perfectly possible to travel via Euston, by the time you clear immigration and customs roads and the Tube are likely to be getting busy. The single adult train fare from Euston to LB is £17.30 prior to the 0924 departure and then £13.

Is that a record for a necroposting bit of spam? 2 and a half years since the last post and not even an attempt to disguise the username
