There are a ton of ways you can get to the airport, but we decided to return to Heathrow the same way we came - via the underground. Taking the Tube back to the airport is easy as long as you don't have 35 pieces of luggage. I had a carry on suitcase, and another large bag, plus a purse. I stood rather than sitting because I was afraid my bags would get in the way of people walking past. In retrospect, I recommend just sitting. Plenty of people did it and just tried to keep their bags as out of the way as possible. No one seemed to mind. I imagine everyone is used to it. The ride was quite long, so having a seat would have been great. On the other hand, I just kept telling myself it was my mini-workout for the day, trying to keep my balance and keep hold of my bags because the operator was a bit of a wild driver ;)
I think it's awesome when the public transport runs easily into the airport. It gives you another option instead of hiring a taxi. Of course with Uber, Lift, etc you do have some more options these days.
