I'm arriving in Heathrow at 10:40pm on a Monday in October and am thinking about staying at a hotel very close to Paddington just for "easy sake". I have a limited amount of time in London as the main goal of my trip is to make my way to Manchester to see a friend. So I'm thinking Tuesday and maybe part of Wednesday in London and that's it.
That said, I'd love to make it to Paddington station on Monday night, but seeing as I'm arriving so late I'm not sure I can clear customs and get to the last train (which I think is at 11:30ish) in time?
Any insight? Maybe I should just stay by Heathrow then take an early train into the city the next day. Thanks for any advice.
