Terminal 4 is not quite as well served by transport links as the rest of Heathrow, as you’ll find that for many bus and rail services you need to connect via Heathrow Central station or the central bus station (in the main airport hub at terminals 1 and 2). That said, free shuttle transfer buses are easily available, and the airport as a whole is very well connected by various methods of transport. Heathrow’s location on the very edge of London does mean that journeys from the city centre can take time, depending on how you choose to travel. Traffic in the area is often heavy too, so allow time for delays if you choose to drive.
