What is the best/fastest way to get to Norwich from Heathrow airport? Arriving on a Sunday at 6:25 am.
Maybe soon she will get the message as indeed many of her posts are now in cyberspace
We flew to Heathrow this summer and rented a car and then made it to Norwich in about 2 hours. It's a little crazy to drive after a long flight from California, but I found it to be much more convenient.
You can also do the train, but a lot more involved and obviously not so quick. You'll need to take the Heathrow Express into London Paddington Station, transfer over to the Liverpool Station, then catch the next train to Norwich. That's a long haul and you'll have to figure out train schedules.
very dodgy to truncate names of stations. ~"transfer over to Liverpool station"~ well thats over 200 miles away. We know you meant Liverpool street but it could be embarrassing asking the way and being pointed in the wrong direction!!!!
If you made it to Norwich in two hours ...well your foot must have been flat to the floor!!!
I feel it's more than a little crazy to drive immediately after arriving on a flight from California. To put it bluntly, you were a risk to yourselves and other road users.
Other possibilities are underground to Green Park Station where you change to the Victoria Line and catch a train to Victoria Station. From their catch a bus or walk to Victoria Coach Station and catch a coach to Norwich. National Express certainly go there. If Megabus go there book them ahead if time ad they are usually far cheaper for a similar service.
1) Necro-post! The OP will have been and gone.
2) Good grief, what strange advice! Fly to Humberside to get to Norwich? How would you get to Norwich from Humberside? Go to Victoria to get a coach to Norwich? What's wrong with getting one directly from Heathrow?
Having flown into Heathrow many times and needed to get up to Norwich have done it a couple of ways, head into central london to Liverpool street by train and then train from LS to Norwich. advantage if you time it right you can grab a great breakfast at LS :)
or take the National Express bus straight from Heathrow to Norwich. Yes the bus can take 5 hours but it's about the same time as going into central london plus you don't have to lug your luggage with you it's as straight shot from Heathrow to Norwich. Cheaper and I prefer to sleep on the bus as opposed to having to be awake making all the train connections.
