Direct Trains from Stratford Upon Avon to Heathrow?

Is it possible to take a direct train from Stratford Upon Avon to Heathrow? We will have luggage and didn't know if we would have to do alot of walking between connections if there is one?

Or would it we better to take a direct to London and a cab to the airport?

Heathrow airport does not have a National Rail station so no, there are no trains from Stratford-upon-Avon to LHR.

Trains from S-u-A go to Marylebone and Euston stations in central London. From Marylebone you could take a taxi to Paddington for Heathrow Connect or Express. From Euston you could make your way to LHR on the Underground with one easy change - no stairs needed - at Green Park station.

There is no easy way to do that journey by rail - the thing you seek to avoid (walking between connections) is unavoidable.

How many in the party? Perhaps check out the cost of a pre booked transfer from S-u-A.

One factor that makes a difference is how many is "we" - the economics of train travel vs taxi are quite different for 2 or 4 people for example.

There are 2 adults and 1 (15 year old) I think we will be fine if we take the train from S-u-A to Marylebone then taxi to Paddington for the Express.

Thanks

It'll be cheaper to get a pre-booked car from Marylebone, I think, if you know what time you will get there.

=========

Just estimating your plan;

2 x adult and 1 child on train, maybe £60

Taxi to Paddington £15.

2 x adult and 1 child on HEX, £50

Total cost £125.

Taxi from SuA to LHR, £125.

If you book a car service from Marylebone station to Heathrow the fare will be £33 - 45 depending on the company with which you book. Consider www.justairports.com www.expressways.co.uk www.swisscottagecars.com and www.handicars.co.uk

Why go all the way into central London just to get a taxi out to Heathrow.

Take the train from Stratford to either Beaconsfield or Gerrards Cross (some direct trains are available - www.nationalrail.co.uk) and then take a (pre-booked) taxi to the airport.
