Pret A Manger <3 what else could you ask for?
Heathrow is huge and that makes it amazing. The shopping at Terminal 3 is fantastic, lots of designers and a smooth experience. I only wish there was a Marks & Spencer or Gordon Ramsey food outlet
Security here is much worse than anything in the U.S. They will toss the contents of bags for no reason at all.
Long walk from Central terminal to T3, long queue for VAT refund, long walk from security to AA gate. Departing from Heathrow is a promised exhausting experience, as always.
Great for shopping so many option n duty free.. Bad waiting chair
The worst!! Wish I was in T5...
Not a bad terminal. Make sure you go through duty free as they seem to have the best booze in all terminals. Loads of lounge to choose from if you have status.
If you are hungry, make sure to get some before leaving the duty free shops and restaurants area. Once you pass that, there isn't any other place to get food..
Try not to spend too much time wishing you were at terminal 5.
The first terminal I arrived in London.
Don't waste your time for looking smoking places cause there isn't any.
The posted walking times to the gates are exaggerated.
Not in the same league as T5, but still better than most!
Pret is your best bet for food if you want to afford to eat for the next week after your flight.
Bye for now London. We'll see yah in seven days...
Free wifi for 45 minutes
VAT refund queue can be crazy. Come in good time!
Longest walk ever to get to the AA gates...
Heads up on this Monday morning arrival: the regular customs line is 30-40 minutes faster than the Fast Track lane.
Terminal for International.
The Repack area is what I treasure the most at T3. Never ever a queue!
Get here easily with the Piccadilly line if you don't mind the tube
If you dont want to spend money on water after security, take an empty bottle, there are water fountains near the toilet.
While you're here, write to Virgin to ask them to move to a more suitable terminal building (that doesn't suck)
On the other side of security, it's the second worst place in Heathrow after the Central Bus Station.
YHWH IS SO GOOD!
Look for the Ben and Jerry's vending machine. Great ice cream while you wait
Make sure to use ePassport through security upon arrival if you have a compliant passport. It is quicker. Remove glasses when taking picture
You can use the AA arrival lounge if are arriving from Asia on a CX flight in business class for a nice shower.
Travel Tip: Virgin Atlantic is in Zone 1 - if you have to pay for extra luggage you (may!) not have to pay to change seats...very helpful :)
Over priced duty free.
Go to The Bridge if you want pub food. It makes a living.
Go at least 1 - 2 hours earlier than the usual 2 hours if you want to claim VAT. Do not pack away your purchases. Worse VAT refund systems I've ever experienced in my life.
Walk towards Pret and you find another seating area which is a lot less crowded!
Bar in terminal 3 sells bottles of Punk, ignore the presence of that Greene King vomit
If you're trying to get a VAT refund, make sure you have every single item with you or the customs will deny the refund on the total amount (and be rude about it too).
Backing my hometown. See u again u.k.
#HeathrowElf is keen to put a #Christmas smile on the face of 4 passengers in T3 this morning (16/12/13)! WHSmith books up for grabs near their store. Follow @heathrowairport on twitter to take part!
#simcards available opposite Boots shop by the arrival area #Farnborough #heathrow #mobilephone #calls

#taxi from #heathrow to #Farnborough, #Aldershot. If you need a #taxiservice pls CALL 01252 651669 or book online at www.dinez.co.uk. CHEAP compare to Heathrow taxis!
Toilet at LHR Terminal 3 level 1parking stinks!
If you are going to get a cab from the airport have cash not credit card to pay for it and don't be surprised if the cabs won't take you outside London :-(
Get a nice filter coffee from Pret rather than queue half an hour for the Starbucks napalm.
The security people are useless..They have no idea why they do it and can not justify anything... The are also 5 people standing doing nothing with 1 person working... Over priced over power people!
Don't bother getting to the gate early, there's bugger all at the gates. WH Smiths often have a deal with a free water if you buy a specific paper.
Come very early if u want VAT refunds
So a Hermes but no sport shop? This stinky little Terminal needs a refit. The only good thing are the charging points. Oh and lHR got progressive by providing 40 mins of wifi for free!
