I apologize if this is a difficult question, however:
I was looking for a way to get from Heathrow Terminals 1-2-3 to North Acton on the Central Line. I'm looking for the easiest, most pain-free way given that I will have some heavy luggage with me.
My plan was to use the Piccadilly line to Acton Town, change for the District line to Ealing Broadway and then take the Central Line to North Acton. However, I was informed that changing from the Piccadilly line to the District Line at Acton Town involves going over a pedestrian footbridge over tracks, and there is no operational lift, not a good idea for heavy luggage.
I am aware of Heathrow Connect with services to Ealing Broadway but I'm on a budget and am planning to use Travelcards which are not valid from Hayes & Harlington to Heathrow anyway.
Would it be easier to go back further into the city and change at Earls Court for the District line to Notting Hill Gate and then to the Central line. My concern here is that being further into the city might mean more escalators and perhaps greater crowds.
I was wondering if anyone had any real experience with these interchanges. Which option would be the easiest for a traveler with plenty of luggage? (Aside from Heathrow Connect).
And one more direction advice request. Would I be correct in assuming that the easiest way from North Acton to Kings Cross St Pancras would be changing for the Circle line at Notting Hill Gate given it is a Sub Surface Line?
