Heathrow to London - Shuttle, Cab or Car Service?

My family of 2 adults and 3 kids will be arriving in London late on a Saturday night. By the time we get our bags and go through customs, it will probably be past midnight. Does anyone have any recommendations on the best way to get from Heathrow to South Kensington at that time of day? Hopefully there is something I can arrange in advance so as to avoid being overwhelmed upon our arrival. Thanks!

I've used justairports.com

It's a car service you book in advance. The driver will be waiting for you in the arrivals hall.

A cab will cost a fortune, a shuttle like dot2dot charges per person so would likely cost even more.

So a car service like Apres recommends is you only real option.

Try either justairports.com or Ray Skinner at http://www.london-transfers.com/

Often justairports is cheaper. But for larger vehicles or special requests, Ray may quote less. I just used Ray/London Transfers for 6 of us and for the people mover he was cheaper by £7. So I'd contact both for quotes. Justairports discounts for cash. Ray discounts for prepayment

dot2dot went out of business several months ago and it's successor skyshuttle has gone out of business too.
