Heathrow to London - train or taxi?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are flying to London this Tuesday, arriving in the early evening; a friend is traveling with us. We will be staying at the Doubletree in Bloomsbury, near the British Museum. We need to figure out the best way to get there from Heathrow. Our friend thinks a taxi would be the way to go, but I suspect that would be really expensive. I see there is an express train from Heathrow that leaves every 15 minutes, and takes 15 minutes to get to Paddington Station. I figure we could then get a taxi from there to our hotel (she doesn't want to deal with the underground while we have luggage with us). The tickets are 18 pounds each. Would we save enough money by taking the train (3 fares), then a taxi from Paddington Station to the hotel to make this option worthwhile? Or would 3 people sharing a cab to go directly from Heathrow to our hotel be cost effective? We'll be tired, and I'd like to minimize hassle, but I don't want to pay an unnecessarily exorbitant amount, either. I see from the web site that there is a 5 pound sur-charge to buy the tickets on the train - can you buy them in the station, or are advance ticket sales online only? I'd appreciate any help figuring this out.
