    Every day at Heathrow 1,400 flights take off and land – one every 45 seconds and nearly half a million per year. You should use underground (Piccadilly Line) from here to city center.

    When coming in from or flying out toward the west on a clear day, look out the window to catch a glimpse of Windsor Castle

    Terminal 2, has plenty of seating available, though not much privacy and the lights tend to stay brightly lit.

    One of the best airports, is really crowded but somehow you have all the facilities you need and is really well organized and you are able to find the gates really fast.

    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

    visit Caviar House restaurant. I recommend the tsarini, moderate in price (relatively). You will not find this sort of thing easily in the USA. A nice break between connections. Located terminal 3.

    Always fly BA. Love T5. Great connections between T5 A, B, C. Just catch the train and it takes you to the long haul flights in a couple of min. Great restaurants and nice lounges.

    Love the upgrades as the facilities are fresh, especially the Queens terminal (number 2). Make sure you give plenty of time (15+ minutes) if traveling around the airport like to a lounge

    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.

    Don't waste your money on pricey + shitty airport food. Go straight for the Boots Meal Deal. £3.79 for sandwich, chips and drink. I lived off this steal for 6 months. Just don't get the prawns.

    Heathrow is huge, but very well organised. Actually I'd like to share very obvious tips: pack your fluids right and fulfill tax-free forms beforehand... and you'll have great experience of efficiency.

    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

    Give enough time to make it to your gate... grab a meal at Wagamama (or anywhere else) before your flight if you can... BA is serving less food these days

    Huge airport with many terminals. Getting from the Terminal 1,2,3 metro station to security over Terminal 3 takes about 15,20 minutes. Make sure you get here well in time. Lots to do and explore!

    Terminal 5 is great. Modern, clean, spacious, and easy to negotiate. Great views of the airfield too. Only slight drawback was very slow through passport checking on the return journey.

    Terminal 2 has excellent shopping and restaurants to keep you busy. Long walk to departure gates so plan ahead. Do not be alarmed by the non-existence departure passport control.

    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.

    Duty free has a great selection of scotch with a good selection at the tasting bar. Give yourself some time to go through it and buy something you probably can't get back home.

    The new T5 is simply one of the best in the world! Plenty of dining and shopping to whittle away your time before wheels up. I like getting out to the satellite gates early for a bit of calm 😑.

    Returning US travelers, security is between Areas D and E, and is super fast with a Fast Track ticket. Even with per screened ticket, though, you still need to remove laptop, iPad, liquids, shoes.

    If you're at Terminal 3 departure and travelling alone, don't wait at the main waiting area. Walk towards the lounges and check out the quieter cafes where you can grab a bite to eat in peace.

    LHRt was an easy airport to move through. The Tube (train station), being on the grounds was a breeze. The people were helpful and the transport to my destination was easy. Early flights are the best.

    Look for the nice deals in the grocery stores, I got a huge sandwich, chips and drink for €3,75. Plan your time on the Internet, the longest you can get for free is around 90 minutes.

    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.

    It's a sprawling but you move through security quickly and for international flights there's a tram to get you to the B and C gates after check in. 1.5 hours before your flight is perfect.

    Terminal 1 can be a deceptive maze. Get ready to hoof it if your a gate is in the B30's. Had to run. Giraffe has the best food if you have the time. Nice shops in holding.

    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.
