For Northumberland House, take the Piccadilly line to Piccadilly Circus and change to the Bakerloo line, going south to Charing Cross.

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 Charing Cross.

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 Trafalgar Square.

All trains come into the South Terminal, but there is a free Inter Terminal Transit train every 3 minutes (journey time 2 minutes).
