Normally London black cabs charge a small extra fee like 5GBP on Chrstmas day, but minicabs will charge
whatever they can get
which is usually loads as the black cabs will likely be on holiday too
Tubes & most overland transport are usually shut BUT Heathrow Express normally runs a bus to Paddington which is a better place to start your trip to the hotel from. I don't fancy your chances of picking up a cab from the taxi rank there though
. You might also like to fly into City airport which is much better for access than Heathrow.
Might be easier to arrive in London on 27th or later when the underground's back in action.
As snowqueen says, some sales may be long gone by the 26th...some don't start until 28th...
Or just go now, because as the economy keeps going down, the number of sales keeps going up
