Baggage retrieval system they’ve got at Heathrow”

Arrival

I arrived after an 8 hour direct flight to London Heathrow. On approach I was able to see some of the places I was planning to see from the air.

Thankfully I had no trouble getting my baggage.

The Tube

To get to my home base in Harold Wood I needed to take two tube lines to national rail (like commuter rail to suburbs) and then a bus.  This was not hard once I got going.  Everything is labelled very well if you keep your eyes open.  I got my Oyster card at the airport tube station and I was off.  Traveling with two suitcases, small ones mind you, is not great fun on the tube so I was looking forward to subsequent trips without luggage.  All my tube tips are on my general trip page.  This was my practice run for tomorrow when I needed to get around London.
