Transport on christmas Eve

Hello all,

We have made a last minute decision to go to London and found our flight to arrive at Heathrow at 8pm on 24 th december 2013.

Our destination is Colchester and we are going to colchester by train , I've not been able to read in details on public transport during eve or Christmas.Would we be able to go to colchester via train?I believe we would need a train to go to the station from the airport and another train to colchester Would all public transport be closed?

Thank you so much.

The last train from London (Liverpool Street) to Colchester on Christmas Eve will be at 21.38, so with a 20.00 arrival at Heathrow and a good hour needed to get from Heathrow Airport to Liverpool Street you could miss it.

There is a National Express coach from Heathrow Airport, Central Bus Station to Colchester at 21.45 on Christmas Eve, getting into Colchester just after midnight - I've just tried a dummy booking on it so it is definitely running. The coach also picks up at Terminal 5 and Terminal 4 before Central Bus Station.

You can do it by National Express coach - at 2145 or 2359

You can't do it by train - the last one leaves central London at 2138 and you can't get there in time.
