    I really enjoyed it. I went with a Ferrari owning mate who is a walking encyclopaedia on the marque - it was like having my own personal guide.

    Seeing some of the early stuff in the metal is lovely. Lot's of interesting memorabilia including the early drawings - which are surprisingly amateur.

    It's not that big: taking our time, examining everything, discussing all the exhibits in detail, we were out in two hours.

    Years ago I thought it was expensive and not as quick as I thought.
    It may well have improved by now

    I can get full family return for £56 if I book now and get 30 day advance rate. It says 15 mins to Paddington ?

    That seems reasonable to me.
    I recall my journey was closer to an hour and was about £50 and that must have been 15 years ago
    I remember because I thought I was being ripped off at the time

    Heathrow Express is easily the quickest route to Paddington... it's usually quite pricey but that sounds like a good advance deal... but...

    If this is at the new Design Museum in South Kensington... then you'll be getting another tube or taxi to there from Paddington... whereas you could go their direct on the Picadilly line tube... and whilst that won't move as quickly I think it would normally be quicker for that A to B. Should be cheaper too... especially if you will continue to use a day travel card later in the day.

    Where are you coming from to need the Express mind? Must be a good show if you're flying in just for that!

    Staying at Heathrow Chris, making a few days of it with wife and kids, legoland and a few other things. It’s the kids I’m bothered about as in staying on trains etc for too long. Happy to jump in a few taxis.

    Dubious about taking the bairns on tube just with how busy it is.

    Eh? Plenty of kids manage, some even travel alone to school via the Tube.
