There is a good choice of options for transferring between Heathrow Airport and Victoria train station. There is no single 'best' option. What is best for you depends on your attitude of compromise between cost, speed, comfort and location of your destination in London.
The fastest, most reliable options are rail based from the cheap and crowded London Underground to the expensive, fast and roomy Heathrow Express train.
London Underground Train. For most people this is going to be by far the cheapest transport option. Underground trains leave Heathrow about every 5 minutes throughout the day you take the Piccadilly Line (Dark Blue) to Green Park then change onto the Victoria Line (Light Blue) to Victoria. There is a flat fare to London Victoria which includes interconnecting with other lines. Downside is crowded carriages in London and negotiating escalators, steps with luggage.
National Express Coach runs the UK's main national inter city bus network. In their way into and out of London these coaches stop at Heathrow. For a fare only slightly more than the Underground you get a luxury coach with bathroom between Heathrow and Victoria Coach Station in London.
Heathrow Connect Train . A full size 'over-ground' dedicated airport train that shuttles between Heathrow and London's Paddington Station. Despite being a stopping train it still makes its destination, Paddington in Central London in 25 minutes, about half the time of the Underground, but you then need to take the tube to Victoria.
Heathrow Express Train is the Rolls Royce option. The train runs like the Heathrow Connect train to London's Paddington station but non-stop taking just 15 minutes. The Heathrow Express runs every 15 minutes.
