In all, there are five terminals operating on airport grounds. Terminals 1 to 3 are centrally located and connected by covered walkways.

Hundreds of shops and restaurants are found across the airport on both sides of security and in the Arrivals areas. Passengers also enjoy easy access to a range of hotels in the immediate vicinity – including a selection of options right on airport grounds. The Hotel Hoppa shuttle service connects to those in the immediate surrounding area to Heathrow’s terminal buildings.

Ample parking is available right on airport grounds – with short-term, long-term and premium services offered. Those heading to central London can take advantage of express rail services, or they can hire a car and plan their own transport itineraries.
