In the greater scheme of things it makes not the tiniest bit of difference

Does it matter?

I choose one over the other simply if the flight is cheaper. Both have easy access from central London. A 35 minute rail journey to Gatwick from Victoria. A 15 minute rail journey from Paddington to Heathrow or 45 minutes approximately from central London by Tube.

What is your actual question? What are you particularly concerned about?

Both have pros and cons

Where in London will you be staying? That can affect which airport is easier to reach. There are also flight options from the other London airports (there are six main airports serving London).

Generally the main arbiters as to which airport to use are

How to get to the airport in time for the flight

The departure time of the fligh

How much it costs

Thanks all. Cheaper flights with British Airways from Heathrow. Looks like it doesn't make a difference.
