I was dreading having to stay at a hotel by Heathrow Terminal 5 but actually I would recommend the Travelodge Hotel there. The others were way too expensive but the travelodge was well OK. Decent value for money, given it’s attached to one of the World’s biggest airports!over 2 years ago

Few airports are particularly fun, but most aren’t this awful. Woe to the connecting passenger: after being shuffled up, down, and around; riding a pointless shuttle bus; and being re-re-scanned by security, you’ll be dumped into a shopping mall and forbidden from proceeding to your gate until a short time before the flight actually departs.over 5 years ago
I flew through LHR both on my way to Dublin and on the way back home (Canada).
At the beginning of the trip, I was dead tired after an overnight flight with very little sleep, so I didn’t much feel like taking in the atmosphere. I must say though, I had no trouble getting where I needed to go – a shuttle bus and a subway all just to get to the other side of the airport seems like a hassle, but I found everything to be very efficient.
On my way back home, I had no time for anything. I booked my connection a little too tightly, so I basically had to run!
Next time I fly through or if I get to visit London, I will make sure to give myself a few hours to walk around and check it all out. There certainly seems to be a lot going on, and as major hub, it’d be great for people watching.over 6 years ago
