One of the largest airports in the world
As one of the largest airports in the world, London’s Heathrow Airport has a rich history that began in 1929. Originally, the airstrip was constructed along a small airfield once known as the Great West Aerodrome. Further construction began in 1944, and continues even today.
It was originally used by the military for long-distance flights to the Far East. Currently, London Heathrow Airport is widely regarded as the busiest one within the United Kingdom, and the fifth busiest in the world.
Heathrow serves about 190,000 passengers every single day, making it the one with the largest daily traffic in the world. LHR consists of five individual terminals, each housing a variety of facilities including restaurants, currency exchanges, shopping arcades, accommodation counters, and general information desks.
Another major London airport is Gatwick, located in Horley, approx. 35 miles away from LHR.
Where Should I Stay ? – Free Parking
Accommodation nearby comes in all shapes and sizes. Passengers traveling via any of the terminals are urged to visit the designated accommodation counters to learn more about the various options within close proximity to the airfield. Many properties offer (free) parking or special parking deals. A shuttle bus service is also provided by many.
Options range from boutique hotels, to B&Bs, to five star hotels, motels and even more modest guest houses as well as cheap hotels. Some popular lodging options nearby include the Renaissance Hotel, Holiday Inn, Travelodge, Radisson Blue Edwardian and the Sheraton Skyline Hotel.
When spending more time in London, it can be more convenient to choose a reasonably priced hotel or b&b in central London.
Airport Terminals 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5
As the oldest one at the airport, Terminal 1 was opened in 1969 by Queen Elizabeth II. It used to be the sole operator for all domestic British Airways flights, but this has changed with the development of Terminal 5. The hall underwent extensive renovation in 2005, that led to a doubling in the size of the departure lounge area. Additional space for retail activities was also added. While the facility continues to be as busy as ever today, it is expected to shut down by the end of 2016.
Terminal 2 of Heathrow airport opened only as early as June, 2014. Commonly referred to as the Queen’s terminal, it was designed by Luis Vidal + Architects and spans approximately 570 yards. There are also plenty of parking facilities large enough to accommodate over 1300 vehicles. As one of the busiest terminals in the airport, it consists of over 50 different shops and 17 bar/restaurant options.
Constructed and opened in 1961 to serve long-haul flights. During its early life, it provided access to helicopters as well and underwent significant expansion in 1970, through the addition of an Arrivals structure. Currently the building is used to primarily serve passengers traveling via Singapore Airlines, Qantas and Emirates. The complex has a cumulative area of just under 100,000 square metres, but is set to be demolished once the expansion of terminal 2 is finished.
Terminal 4 of Heathrow airport was opened in 1986 and is located closest to the cargo hangar. It has a total area of over 100,000 square metres and is used to accommodate the Sky Team alliance. Recently, an investment of around 200 million pounds has been made into Terminal 4 to enable it to accommodate 45 airlines. Traffic congestion and security is also expected to be vastly improved.
Situated in the middle of the southern and northern runways of Heathrow airport, Terminal 5 was opened in 2008 by Queen Elizabeth II. In the beginning it did encounter some brief operational problems initially, it now has the facilities and capacity to serve over 30 million passengers. The facility also consists of over 100 different retail outlets and restaurants, amidst a range of other facilities. Terminal 5 has a total area of approximately 300,000 square metres, making it the largest departure and arrival complex at London Heathrow LHR international.
