Take the Underground (Piccadilly Line) to South Kensington Station (50 minutes travelling time). Note that Heathrow Express is not directly connected to South Kensington, so it is not recommended (it is also much more expensive).

From Gatwick airport

Take a national rail train to Victoria station (journey time 40 minutes) and then by Underground, (Circle or District Line; westbound) to South Kensington.

Both airports are some distance from central London and a taxi is not recommended for the whole journey. However, if you have to travel by taxi, establish the cost before you get in.
