LHR to the Marais the hard way. Tips?

Jump to last reply

Using BA avios/miles, flying from US into LHR early morning Sunday Dec.23. At the time we grabbed those flights our plans weren't quite firm, and anyway nothing was available that day to CDG.

Still looking for a flight for the three of us, and finding nothing reasonably priced without waiting 8 hrs. I'm happy to get to St. Pancras and take Eurostar across, and plan to jump on tickets as soon as they're available.

How would you suggest getting to the train station? Tube vs. ? And how long would you allow between an 0645 LHR arrival time and train departure? A taxi from Gare du Nord to our Marais flat looks like the way to go.

Coming home we'll have been in London 10 days, so no rush on the other end.
