transportation from Heathrow to London on boxing day 2018

Hi
I see that the heathrow express does not run during boxing day. Does anyone know what time the tube starts? i couldnt find this information online. I will be staying near borough market. Would there be a bus to drop me off around there from Heathrow?

Thanks,
Jo

I'd never take the HEX even if it was running . . . unless you are staying right at Paddington. Otherwise it doesn't make sense because you still have to take a taxi or the Tube to your final destination. The HEX for Borough Market would be a terrible choice..

If you are traveling carry-on only and can handle the Tube use that. But a better option IMO would be a pre-booked car service like justairpors.com which would be door-to-door.

If you do want to use the Tube, where exactly are you staying (post code) - 'near Borough Mkt' could be closer to Southwark, London Bridge, or Borough stations.

It looks like tube specifics are quite posted yet for the holiday week. I would check the internet again closer. If you still can't tell or just don't want to worry about it you might try a car service like justaiports.com. One benefit of car service on holidays is without too much traffic it can be much quicker and so worth the cost time tradeoff for a holiday. And do watch for specific closures on any given line or station. Those happen even when not a holiday. Use this page from the tube website and pick "future date" tab and chose from the calendar that pops up to check any given day. https://tfl.gov.uk/tube-dlr-overground/status/

And do note-- justairports and some other car services charge less if you pay cash instead of by credit card. To SE1 justairports would cost 39 cash and 51 credit.

To London Bridge the most straight forward, but not necessarily easiest, tube journey would be Piccadilly line to Green Park, then Jubilee line to London Bridge.

At Green Park, there's quite a walk between the lines, but there are lifts if you can't face getting your luggage up and down a couple of dozen stairs between the platforms and the interchange corridor.
