We stay in Bloomsbury near Russell Square.

Have taken the tube quite a few times but our hands down preferred way to get from the airport is to hire a car service (not a taxi).

We've used Simply Airports with very happy results.

Do not use a London taxi for that journey; you'll be looking at £70-75 from Heathrow. A pre-booked car service will cost in the region of £40-45.

A list of generally well reviewed car services is given in the thread below.

'I can get you a real london taxi ....' More than a whiff of Billingsgate here, as each post discusses much the same thing, the 'getting' of a London cab and driver.

Shelly, you may take the Piccadilly line of the Underground to King's Cross station, a step free journey from start to finish, then a taxi from KX to Great Russell Street. Maximum fare from the airport to KX is £5.30 but would be £2.90 if you use PAYG on Oyster. Taxi fare from King's Cross to the hotel shouldn't be more than £7 - 10.

>>Remember I can get you a real london taxi which is wheelchair accessable for a flat fee of £50.Heathrow to Bloomsbury.<<

>>There is no 'whiff of Billingsgate',my family are london taxi drivers <<

Not only a whiff of Billingsgate, but an added flavor of solicitation and self promotion thrown in methinks.

Posts 2, 4 & 6 reported as spam. Please do the same.

I should also add that no taxi driver will offer a fixed price from the airport. to anywhere in Greater London.

This is just in case you were thinking of getting a pre booked car from Bloomsbury on your return or onward journey.

Do not choose Bloomsbury Cars.

Unfortunately I did last month.

The car was booked one week in advance.

It didn't arrive at the agreed time and it took me 3 phone calls to get a car to then turn up an hour late.

It was fortunate that I wasn't heading for an airport but it was a long distance journey.

I have used prepaid cars before in London but I will never use this firm again.
