Arriving @ Heathrow at 11PM - should we forgo hotel on 1st night?

Jump to last reply

We are a group of 3 sisters in early mid- thirties traveling to London, Paris, Amsterdam in August 2012 arriving to Heathrow on Saturday 8/4/11 at 11PM – not ideal, but we bought the tickets using air miles. One of my sisters wants to forgo a hotel room the first night, and either:

1. Find a pub and have a pint until closing – then, what??
2. Stay in the airport and catch a few z’s
3. Store our luggage (one carryon each) + over the shoulder bags – if this is even possible – can we store our luggage in the train station – and begin touring?? This is during the Olympics, too - if that matters!

So, is she maaaad (as the Brits say), or should we just check in past midnight? (my vote) I’m posting here to humor her and prove my point, but I’m trying to keep an open mind. We’re flying from O’Hare on a 7.5 hour flight! 2/3 have been across the pond before – for some background. Thanks for your advice. If you agree with her, what should we do between midnight and 8am/ish? Thanks!
