Fom Heathrow

London Underground (the Tube) connects Heathrow directly with central London. This is the cheapest convenient way to travel as long as you don't have too much luggage. 
For High Holborn, take the Piccadilly line directly to Holborn.


A possibly faster but certainly more expensive option is the  Heathrow Express. This  runs every 15 minutes to and from Paddington Station in central London. The journey takes about 15 minutes. From Paddington take the Tube, Bakerloo line to Oxford Circus and change to Central line for Holborn.

By bus

National Express run bus services between the terminals and central London. Most go to Victoria. Unless you arrive after the last tube we wouldn't recommend this service for High Holborn.

Fom Gatwick

Thameslink Railway runs train services to Bedford via London, which stop at King's Cross/St Pancras.  From here, take the Piccadilly line southbound to Holborn. Alternatively, the Gatwick Express runs every 15 minutes to Victoria. The journey takes about 30 minutes. All trains come into the South Terminal, but there is a free Inter Terminal Transit train every 3 minutes (journey time 2 minutes).
