Until 7th December, those lucky enough to be travelling on the service will experience a more joyful journey as one of its carriages has been transformed into an enchanting festive scene.
From November 5 until November 7, Christmas postal elves are on hand to greet passengers as they step onboard, where they will be surrounded with twinkling lights and the sound of sleigh bells ringing.
Once seated, passengers can immerse themselves in a magical carriage decked with colourful baubles, packed with parcels, and rammed to the rafters with festive fun.
During the journey, families will be able to write a letter to Santa, plus, special treats including a Golden Ticket giveaway and a chance to win a shopping spree are on offer across the three days.
Plus, for those travelling for the rest of December, the joy continues, as until 6th January a Christmas tree will be centre stage at Paddington Station, covered in bright baubles and vintage decorations.
Young passengers will be thrilled with a mini version of the Heathrow Express running on tracks around the tree in a snowy scene.
Finally, from 12th –23rd December anyone passing through London Paddington should not miss the festive atmosphere, when live performances from carol singers will roam the station, and seasonal Instagram worthy photo opportunities set up to delight every traveller.
The Heathrow Express is a stress-free experience that takes just 15 minutes to reach its destination, with spacious cabins, free Wi-Fi, and an Onboard Entertainment system. Plus, kids 15 years and under travel free, making a trip to the North Pole (or any other destination) even better value for money. ■
