For Heathrow, get the Bakerloo line tube from Charing Cross tube station (a separate station from the railway station, with entrances actually in the square) north either to Piccadilly Circus (where you change for the Piccadilly line tube) or to Paddington for the much faster but much pricier Heathrow Express train.
Charing Cross station is 50 yards from Traf Sq.
Get off, stay on the platform and there are trains every 5 mins or so to Charing Cross from the other side.
