My wife and I and our two boys are visiting London this fall, and we have two questions for frequent visitors to London or other experts on this forum.
Q1. We are scheduled to arrive early afternoon on a Sunday, and are staying at a hotel a short walk from King's Cross/St. Pancras. From a comfort and convenience standpoint, would it make more sense to take the Piccadilly line from Heathrow to King's Cross or use the Blackberry car service? We will have just checked through customs after a 11-hour overnight flight and each of us will have a small, carry-on suitcase and backpack.
Q2. We will be in London for 7 days and plan to utilize the tube and bus routes to get around. I was leaning towards the Oyster Card but cannot ascertain the benefit of this vs. going contactless with a credit card and having the caps in place. On that latter point, is it fair to assume that I can use the same credit card for all four of us each time we access the public transit network?
Thanks in advance!
