It's a long way so will not be cheap by cab or car service. Tell us more about when you will be travelling and how many you are please.

Not sure where you are trying to get to, but it's not going to be inexpensive or fast wherever it is.

Am I understanding that you are flying to the UK so that you can take a long taxi ride to get a boat to leave the UK?

Could the final destination be Normandy? There have been a couple of discussions of Portsmouth being the best way to and from the area.

I'm not sure Portsmouth is the best way to or from the area if you start in California though. Or even if you start at Heathrow come to that...

It's not! And I could be wrong about Normandy anyway!

But I wouldn't be surprised if the Op has got flights on frequent flyer miles ot London, and has decided that a ferry to Cherbourg or somewhere is a good idea. I must admit, it's something I'd consider myself, just for the adventure of it!

It would probably be over £100. Buses would do the journey much more cheaply.

I should have made it clear that I'd consider a ferry but not a taxi from LHR to get there, far too expensive!

The easiest way is to take the bus from Heathrow's central bus station, near terminals 1, 2 and 3, to Woking railway station and get the train from there. Cost is approx £29 each - buy the ticket at Heathrow as there is no advantage booking in advance.
