Thanks to the range of comfortable, peaceful lounges at Heathrow, your airport experience doesn’t have to be characterised by frantic travellers, screaming kids or desperate scrabbles for that last remaining seat. At Heathrow’s lounges you can escape the crowds and find tranquillity in which to work, relax, eat and drink at surprisingly low prices. Booking in at one of the lounges also entitles you to complimentary drinks, snacks, newspapers and magazines.

Heathrow LoungeThere are a range of lounges to suit all comers. Terminals 2 & 4 are home to the Plaza Premium Lounges. Sleek and stylish, these lounges illustrate the influence of their designer, the Hong Kong star Kinney Chan, and are perfect for relaxing and indulging ahead of a long flight or business trip, or as the perfect start to a pampering holiday. There are private relaxation rooms, a luxurious shower room, and a wellness spa with a menu of exclusive treatments run by Ila. There are also plenty of options for refreshment, with a tapas bar, a champagne bar with a wide choice of vintage and non-vintage options, and a generous selection of freshly made food and drinks available to all visitors. The Plaza Premium Lounges are open between 05:00am and 23:00pm every day. Terminal 3 is home to three lounges. The first of these is the Servisair Executive Lounge, where you can enjoy top-notch service and hospitality for three hours prior to your flight, including complimentary alcoholic and soft drinks; coffee, tea and snacks; television and a selection of newspapers and magazine; and quiet areas where you can simply sit in comfortable chairs and relax prior to your flight. The Servisair Executive Lounge is also great for business travellers, with internet access, computer points, and telephone and fax services to make sure you’re able to get that all-important work done. For travellers on long connections looking to refresh or catch a bit of shut-eye in between flights, Terminal 3’s other two lounges have single and twin bedrooms to allow you to do just that – you’d be forgiven for thinking you were still at your hotel, Park Grand Heathrow; among the most luxurious of the hotels near Heathrow Airport.

No.1 Traveller Bedrooms feature en suite bathrooms, and are open from 06:00am to 23:00am with a minimum stay of 3 hours. No.1 Traveller Lounge combines bedrooms and showers with a stylish lounge, where you can enjoy complimentary food and drink; a fully tended bar; free Wi-Fi, newspapers and magazines; a family room; massage and nail treatments at the No.1 Travel Spa; and even a games room and cinema to make sure you and your family can keep yourselves entertained. The SkyTeam Lounge in Terminal 4 offers similar opportunities to relax or work as you see fit, and features a mezzanine lounge with sweeping views over the airfield. The ultimate Heathrow lounge, though, is to be found – where else? – in Terminal 5. Aspire is a contemporary British-designed space with soaring windows on both sides, which afford dramatic views over the runway; a complimentary menu of British-inspired seasonal cuisine, with a premium menu available on request; there’s also a range of iconic cocktails, Spey whisky, and exquisite wines on offer. To help you relax as much as possible before your flight, there’s a Quiet Zone with rest pods where you can recharge and watch TV in privacy, televisions, newspapers and magazines, and showers available. And if you’re planning on working as you wait, there’s a work area with complimentary Wi-Fi and charging posts.
