Transfers from Heathrow to Greenwich

I am spending 3 nights in London from 31st March as a start to our European adventure. We have a group of 3 adults, 2 children (10 and 12) and a baby (8 months old). I have already booked accommodation at the UStay in Greenwich and tickets on the Big Bus. What I am wanting to know is the best way to get from Heathrow to our accommodation - it will be at around 5:30pm on a Sunday. We are going to Paris after London and I have bought Eurail tickets for that. I assume the train is the best option for this transfer. Thank you so much for any help you can provide!

Book a car service. LHR to Greenwich is a schlep across London; your children may / will not find it amenable after a long haul flight; you may think the youngest will be ready for University by the time you reach your destination in any event (it is a trek).

Trains from London Cannon Street run to Greenwich rail station, but a car from the airport will be the least painful choice. Have a look at www.handicars.co.uk and www.justairports.com

You could take the train from Greenwich to London Bridge station and change there for a First Capital Connect train to St Pancras for Eurostar. Depending on when your train to Paris departs, it might not be too bad a journey. Check train times at www.nationalrail.co.uk

Thank you so much for that. I was thinking a car service would be best - thank you for the recommendations.

" I have bought Eurail tickets for that." Do you mean Eurostar tickets?
