The Platforms

Describe Online

Overview

This station consists of a single island platform leading east with platform 3, normally serving Heathrow Connect Trains which run empty to Heathrow Terminals 1, 2 and 3 lying south of platform 4, serving Heathrow Express trains to London Paddington.

Note that platform 3 is used for Heathrow Express services on Sundays.

There's tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

To Reach

We suggest it's easiest to use the lifts from either level withing the terminal. Details of the terminal itself lie beyond the scope of this survey.

From the lifts, turn right (east) into the central reservation, right (south) for platform 3, or then left (north) for platform 4.

Note that there's no platforms 1 or 2 at this station.
