Directions for your London City airport transfer

London City Airport (LCY) is a small, one-runway international airport located just 11km east of London city centre. Your transfer from City airport to London shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes in a taxi. To begin your journey, you will take Hartmann Rd toward Camel Rd before turning right onto Connaught Rd/A112. Your driver will follow this road across two roundabouts before taking the exit onto N Woolwich Rd/A1020. Then, they will take the ramp to Lower Lea Crossing/A1020 before exiting onto Aspen Way/A1261. After a few km, your driver will then merge onto Tower Hill/A100 and follow this street into the city centre. From here, your driver will use the local roads to reach your hotel.

Why choose a London City airport taxi?

City airport is located quite close to the city centre of London, so taking a City airport taxi is quite affordable. It also means that you won’t need to navigate the busy public transport in London, putting your personal belongings at risk. Instead, you will make your way directly to your hotel in comfort. 

London city airport taxi prices

The local black cab drivers at City airport don’t offer a flat-rate fee for the journey into the city centre of London, instead, they will charge you using a taximeter based on distance.
