    Known as the one of the busiest airport in the world. Tha Best way to get to the city is using tube (subway). Only take about less an hour we can reach the downtown of London. #traveling#LondonCalling

    Airports quality shows in busy times. Are the buildings designed for a large amount of people?How are the queues organized?Is it easy to navigate through terminals? LHR easily excels in all categories

    Well. It's an airport. I'm at terminal 3 but have used others too. With all the waiting time these days because of security you couldn't really ask for a better airport in terms of having things to do

    Heathrow, despite its undeserved reputation, is a great airport, especially terminal 5. Good facilities, great for shopping and some of the fastest baggage handling in the world.

    Depending on the security checkpoint you go through, it can either be hellish , or rather nice. Charge your phone where you can , as the outlets are different in various parts of the airport.

    Terminal 2: get huge takeout share-box for £12 at Yo Sushi. Then 'London's Pride' to sit in for coffee&use work stations with power sockets. 'Leon' does good range of healthy food options downstairs.

    Underground is effective way to get to terminal 4. Heathrow express+searching for shuttle bus+its travel will take almost the same time, but will cost more, though in peak times it is not comfortable

    2. Go to Huxleys which is on the left hand side after the security check, good beer and good food, for something under 10 pounds, you can get a very filling meal, avoid shops on the concourse level

    Huge difference between GOOD T5, and AWFUL T1-4. if you access BA lounges, good showers shoulder massage. Worth a go to Sofitel hotel spa landside if you have a longer than 2hours transit.

    Flying of T5? Always head to the North Gates right away. Most incoming travellers arrive near the South Gates so they are usually busier, or closed if the traffic volume is low. Either way, go North.

    For an 8 hrs layover from gate to gate, you get about 2-3 hrs to head out to Central London ( incl. travel time) if you take the Heathrow Connect or Express respectively. In that amount of time.
