My gf and I are flying out to New York in September, as we live over 4 hours away from London, we are planning on staying over the night before, we get into London at 5pm and our flight is at 2pm the following day.
We are torn whether to stay in central London and take the tube into Heathrow the morning of the flight, or stay over around Heathrow. If we were to get to Heathrow around 6pm, would there be anything to do to keep us entertained, shops, restaurants etc??
Any help is much appreciated :)
