    As many of us know the Underground (Tube) is London is undergoing years of renovations and this often results in whole or partial line closures, typically at weekends.

    You can check what is closed for next weekend at - http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/livetravelnews/realtime/track.aspx?offset=weekend

    You can sign up to receive emails about futures closures -

    Looks as if the next closure impacting Piccadilly Line to Heathrow is 19-20 Feb when Hammersmith to Northfields is closed. Likely this means buses between these stations to/from Heathrow.

    After that 6-7 August, has the line closed north of Kings Cross.

    Do they still offer NEX rides using the travelcard on days the Piccadilly line is closed?

    No it seems to have stopped during the recent stoppages. The posters I have seen about the one I mention above make no reference to the Heathrow Express I am afraid [​IMG]

    There is always the Heathrow Connect.

    I assume it is for the benefit of those travelling toward London, because it always just misses a train going west from Hayes :( So annoyingly so that I've been calling it The Disconnect for years.

    Heathrow Connect is excellent when departing from Heathrow.

    Unless you are trying to get from Heathrow to Maidenhead.

    Or it's Sunday morning.

    Or you land in Terminal 5.

    Or you just missed the last one and have the pleasure of watching at least 2 HEX's leave before the next.
