Staying at a hotel near Heathrow Airport isn't just convenient for flying; it's also just a short trip away from some beautiful British villages, historic homes and the vibrant city of London.
After checking in at your Heathrow Airport Hotel, jump on the high-speed Heathrow Express that puts you in central London in just 15 minutes. You can then take the Tube to experience London's sublime shopping, quirky markets, cheerful pubs and historic sites such as the Tower of London, the National Gallery, the Tate Modern or Hyde Park.
Alternatively, Windsor Castle, the spectacular residence of Queen Elisabeth II, is just a 15km drive from the hotels at Heathrow Airport. With 1,000 rooms, the medieval castle is the largest occupied castle in the world. Take a tour to view the state rooms, gardens and St. Georges Chapel.
The magnificent Hampton Court Palace, the former residence of Henry VIII, is easy to reach from the Marriott hotel at Heathrow; the bus leaves from right outside the front door. A popular 20-km hike along the Thames Path starts at the palace grounds and ends in the village of Staines, where you can catch a bus back to your Heathrow Airport hotel.
