My husband, 6 year old daughter and I will be visiting London for the first time. Our flight will arrive at Heathrow this Saturday (June 25th) at around 10:40 am, but we are not able to check in to our rental apartment until 2:30pm. (Note that the apartment is located in Bayswater, right above Hyde Park.) As recommended here, I'm considering hiring Just Airports to take us from Heathrow to London.
I am guessing we'll probably get to London before 1:00pm and it would be nice if we could have lunch and walk around while we wait to check in to the apartment. Question is - what should we do with our luggage while we wait? I understand we can leave our luggage at Paddington Station. Should we hire a car from Just Airports, have them drop us off at Paddington Station and leave our luggage there while we explore for an hour or two? ...then perhaps take a cab from Paddington Station to our apartment?
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks so much!
