London next week

Hi, I have a question about best way to get to our hotel from Heathrow. We are staying at the ST recommended Vancouver Suites, 30 Prince's Square, London W2 4NJ, UK. I am inclined to take the tube, I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you
This is one case where the Heathrow Express plus a taxi from Paddington makes sense : quicker (though possibly more expensive, depending on numbers) than a pre-booked car door to door, but avoids having to get your luggage up the stairs at Bayswater tube and the walk from there.
None of that would be covered by the Oystercard, so you could get those once you're settled in. Bayswater is the nearest tube station.
Or if you wanted to do it all cheaply on the Oystercard, get those at Heathrow, take the Piccadilly Line, change at Hammersmith (walk across the platform) to any eastbound District Line to Earl's Court and change there (same platform, could be either side, though) for an Edgware Road train to Bayswater. But AFAIK there is no lift or escalator there, so you'd have to get your luggage up to the exit and walk a bit to Prince's Square. This way might also take a bit longer than the HEX+taxi.
I would love suggestions on what I have planned, how best to organize our days and how to include some of places in a way that saves time. We have 4.5 days. I am traveling for one week with adult Son.

I plan on doing a lot of London Walks
Tate Modern
Tate Britain
Museum of London www.museumoflondon.org.uk/mu...lan-your-visit -
I’d love theater suggestions, I have not purchased tickets yet and may buy at TKTS. Fear large lines, not sure what to do?
Double Decker bus, for fun, is there a better line to take with views?
Ottlengi restaurant, I have the books and would love to eat in one.
Afternoon Tea,
Walk around Shoreditch area, this seems like a cute area for shops.
Churchill War room, should I pre buy tickets?

You could combine a visit to the Tate Modern with a production at Shakespeare's Globe.

I am going soon too and I have been doing a lot of research - so, though I have not been to the Churchill War Rooms, based on what I have read you should definitely pre-book. When I go I will try every day with the lottery for Hamilton...

I am taking a food tour in Shoreditch - would be happy to post the link if you are interested in something like that.

I have had two great lunches at Ottolenghi Nopi. Book in advance!
