Airport Insider // London Heathrow Airport

London Heathrow Airport

London's Heathrow Airport is full of dining and shopping options, as well as other conveniences for travelers.

Airport Code: LHR
Miles From City: 15

One of the world’s busiest international airports, Heathrow handles some 66 million passengers per year. The airport is sleek, wonderfully easy to navigate and packed with options—shopping at British stalwarts such as LK Bennett, Mulberry, Burberry and Thomas Pink; conveniences such as showers, VAT returns and access to the Heathrow Express and the Underground; epicurean delights at Caviar House & Prunier.

Yotel // Check in at one of the 32 “cabins” at this innovative capsule hotel, complete with en suite bathrooms, free Internet access and “techno wall” entertainment systems. Rooms start at £25 for four hours or £56 overnight. Enjoy monsoon-style rain showers and 24-hour room service.

Boots // The British pharmacy staple is perfect for picking up forgotten toiletries and medicines. Stock up on the Botanics range of products infused with plant extracts and tubes of Berocca, the effervescent “stay sharp” tablets that can’t be found stateside.

Harrods Food Hall // If you didn’t satisfy your fix at the original Harrods in Knightsbridge, you can stock up on gourmet sundries here, including chocolates, jams and tea and coffee. It’s the perfect place to pick up a stylish, yet inexpensive gift for a loved one back home.
