Heathrow Terminal 4 is a railway station serving London Heathrow Terminal 4 at London Heathrow Airport.

The station is served by the Heathrow Express 'shuttle' service providing a train every 15 minutes between Terminal 4 and Heathrow Central. Some early morning, late evening and most Sunday services are operated by Heathrow Connect. Heathrow Express operate the station and tickets are sold for both Heathrow Express and Heathrow Connect services. Heathrow Express customers must first catch either a Heathrow Connect or shuttle service to Heathrow Central for access to Heathrow Express.

A separate Heathrow Terminal 4 tube station caters for London Underground Piccadilly line services. Transport for London Travelcards are not valid on services from the Heathrow Express station, though the tube station is in Travelcard Zone 6. Heathrow Central and Terminal 4 National Rail stations are outside the Travelcard zonal area. Journeys to and from Heathrow Central (formerly Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3) on the Heathrow Connect are free of charge and can also be used by passengers changing terminals at Heathrow.

Heathrow Connect services serve several other stations in west London and terminate at Paddington.
