From Heathrow take the piccadilly line on the underground to Hammersmith, walk across the platform and take a district line tube to Embankment. At Embankment, take the exit on the left,walk up Villiers Street and then turn right onto the Strand. The Strand Palace hotel is a few minutes walk on the left opposite the Savoy.

Just get the Piccadilly line to either Covent Garden or Holborn no changes. Hotel is about 5 minutes walk from either (Note: Holborn is easier at busy times - weekends and evening between about 6 and 9 pm when CG is extremely busy).

From the hotel's site:

strandpalacehotel.co.uk/explore-with-us/…

The reason it is worth considering Holborn, one stop further, is that at busy times CG is very congested as you have to wait for a lift to street level.

The way described in no 1 is further to walk, including an uphill bit and requires a change of line.

OP if you have luggage, the walk from Holborn tube to your hotel will take around 15 minutes. Here is a map: http://maps.google.com.au/maps?hl=en&tab=wl

If travelling to Holborn, walk out of the tube station onto Kingsway, turn left, walk 5 minutes to Aldwych, turn right, follow Aldwych to the end where it merges onto the Strand, and your hotel is a few minutes walk. From memory it's on the left. If travelling from Covent Garden, exit the station, turn right, quick right again then down the hill towards the markets, walk straight through to the end, turn right, then turn left on Southampton St, walk through to the end - the street ends, but there is a pedestrian access through to The Strand. You should be able to see your hotel.

Hope this helps.

Hi Donna, we made same trip last Jan to the strand...got out at Covent garden but as prev stated this can be annoying at busy times, with luggage u have to get the lift. Stairs NOT an option, we only had hand luggage so took the stairs, for detailed walking help www.walkit.com is brilliant
