London logistics...help for a first timer!

Jump to last reply

I posted a bit ago about an itinerary for a week in and around London. I'm back to ask about my tweaked itinerary and some logistics around London.

I was the poster that was considering staying at a b&b in Kennington and I got reamed for it! I'm back to say that I found a hotel that I hope you will all find suitable for the central sights. I have decided on the Lime Tree Hotel in the Belgravia neighborhood. It is between the Victoria and Sloane Square underground stations.
1) What is the opinion on this hotel?

I was also considering on my previous post of landing and driving to Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and then onto Bath. I was told by so many that was not the way to start the trip. Driving after an overnight flight would not be the best idea. Here is the new, rough draft, itinerary:
Saturday May 17- Arrive in London; check into hotel; venture out to get our bearings
Sunday May 18- London
Monday May 19- London
Tuesday May 20- London
Wednesday May 21- Get a rental car; Windsor Castle; drive to Winchester
Thursday May 22- Stonehenge, Old Sarum, Wiltshire White Horses
Friday May 23- Bath; overnight at Heathrow hotel for Saturday May 24 flight home
2) What is the opinion on our itinerary?

London logistics:
3) What is the best way to get from Heathrow to the Lime Tree Hotel?
4) Should we get any tickets at home...Tower of London...or not worry about it?

Thanks!
