Do you need a visa to enter the UK?

Which terminal do you depart from?

How many are there of you?

I've found two Traveller Articles with ideas:

tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g186338-c195392/Lon…

for central London

and

tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g186216-c184679/Uni…

for Windsor Castle

If you do plan on this please at least double check everything - flight times, checkin times, transport availability (and disruptions due to events etc); opening hours and so on - they can all change!

What is the timing of this 12 hour layover? It could be problematic if its overnight and you dont have a visa. Are you planning to get one?

No it is not overnight. I will find out what the cost will be to get a day visa - or even like a transit visa
