If you hear the word "airport terminal" and you think of languid passengers boxed in industrial-style seats watching non-stop TV coverage and awaiting flight calls, Heathrow Airport in London may well surprise you. Heathrow is located 20 miles west of Central London and boasts excellent transportation links. And more international passengers utilize Heathrow than any other airport worldwide. In general, about 180,000 passengers come through Heathrow daily, equaling more than 65 million a year. But, in addition to efficiency, Heathrow also offers sophistication to its travelers.
Terminal 4 of Heathrow, which opened in 1986, hosts 38 airlines and serves about 14.2 million passengers annually. This terminal provides a stimulating experience for its guests by offering world class shopping, with opportunities for browsing available in areas before security, after security, and in arrivals. Merchandise also ranges widely--from travel needs, luggage, reading materials and gift items, to high fashion and accessories, sportswear, jewelry, and gourmet edibles. One can grab a magazine for in-flight reading, or pamper oneself with an exclusive luxury item. Terminal 4 shops, some with multiple locations, include Boots, Excess Baggage Company, Rolling Luggage, WH Smith, Borders, Austin Reed, Tumi, Escada, Burberry, Mappin & Webb, Thomas Pink, Mulberry, Tie Rack, Salvatore Ferragamo, Ted Baker, Nike, Sunglass Hut, Cartier, Links of London, Beauty Studio, Chocolate Box, Caviar House & Prunier, Harrod's, Cath Kidston, Dixons--Tax Free, Glorious Britain, and World Duty Free. Check out Hamley's highly popular toy store for gift ideas and amusements for the younger set; entertain anyone older with a visit to HMV for games, music and movies. Terminal 4 even showcases some flashy cars at the Best of the Best Supercars locale. Currency exchange is provided by American Express and Travelex; Spectrum Interactive rents fixed internet communication points to travelers.
You also can grab a bite to eat or a bit to drink while in Terminal 4. Dining options include Caffe Nero, AMT Coffee, Caviar House & Prunier Seafood Bar, Costa, Starbucks, Garfunkel's, and Bridge Bar and Eating House. Wetherspoons serves classic pub grub and is family friendly; Dining Street Restaurant offers a wide range of British comfort food; and Cafe Rouge provides a French twist to your Heathrow experience. Three restaurants located in the nearby Hilton hotel include Zen Oriental (offering Asian formal dining, open for lunch and dinner), Oscar's, and Aromi Restaurant (with Italian-style dining and daily buffet).
Another service offered by Heathrow Airport includes lounges, which give travelers a chance to unwind and revive away from crowds. Families with small children will enjoy the play areas found there, and business passengers will appreciate the facilities which enable them to work even while traveling.
Want to catch an early flight, or have a lengthy layover? Multiple hotels are available near Heathrow, and the National Express line operates the Hotel Hoppa bus, linking those hotels to the airport.
