We are arriving at Heathrow about 7 am a week from Thursday. We have not been to London in a long time - have no problems navigating the NYC Subways or Paris Metro.
It looks like we could take the London Underground from Heathrow to Gloucester Road. But, I am guessing it will likely be rather crowded and we will each have a carry-on suitcase.
Suggestions? It looks like if we take the Heathrow Express we are going to wind up on the opposite side of the city and still have to combat crowds. Should we consider the National Express? I can't figure out the website instructions - can you book it when you arrive?
