Getting to central London from the airport
The Buddhist centre is located in central London. All London airports are well linked to central London by train and by bus.
From Gatwick there is a direct rail link to Victoria, which is two Tube stops away from the Buddhist centre (take the Victoria line to Vauxhall). The fastest and most expensive option is the Gatwick Express. The slowest way – and best value for money – is by Easybus or National Express coach.

From Stansted, there is a train to Liverpool Street Station, which is the other side of Zone 1 from the Buddhist centre. You can also take a Terravision, EasyBus, or National Express bus to Victoria station, which is much closer to the Buddhist centre than Liverpool Street. From Victoria, take the Victoria line on the Underground to Vauxhall.
From Luton Airport you can get to Victoria station by Terravision, EasyBus, or National Express. Or you can take a train to Kings Cross-St. Pancras station, which is quicker. From Kings Cross St Pancras, take the Tube – Victoria line to Vauxhall, or Northern Line to Kennington. More information here: http://www.london-luton.co.uk/en/airport/
Heathrow airport has a very fast (15 minute) rail link to Paddington station via the Heathrow Express train. From Paddington, take the Bakerloo line and change at Oxford Circus for the Victoria line to Vauxhall. Overall journey time can be under an hour. On London Underground, take the Piccadilly line (dark blue) to Green Park and change to the Victoria line to Vauxhall. NOTE: It’s cheaper to get an Oyster card if you’re making more than journey. Ask at the ticket office. For tube maps, simply check the London visitor guide (link above) or get a map at any tube station. The journey can take one to one-and-a-half hours on the Tube, depending on the time of day. More information here: http://www.heathrowairport.com/transport-and-directions.
