London Heathrow Airport covers a huge area - with four terminals (T2, T3, T4 and T5) and a network of related infrastructure. Despite being a London airport, the actual location is some fifteen miles outside of the city, on the outskirts of Greater London. Visitors looking for somewhere to stay therefore have several options. London city centre is an option, as there are fast train links to the airport, but seeing as there is an abundance of excellent accommodation surrounding the airport itself, there is little point in adding the added stress of further travel into the mix. Bath Road features dozens of hotels and guest houses and the nearby villages of Feltham, West Drayton and Harlington also offer plenty of options.
Prices closer to the airport tend to be slightly higher, but there are plenty of reasonable rates available and most places accommodate both business and leisure travellers. Nor are properties limited to the typical airport hotel either - the surrounding areas of Heathrow feature several picturesque rural locations that are perfect for unwinding either before or after the hustle and bustle of the airport. Ultimately, the needs of the individual traveller will determine the most suitable location, but the City of London, the airport vicinity and the surrounding towns and villages are all viable options to consider.
Heathrow or Heath Row started out as a tiny airfield near a small hamlet in the parish of Harmondsworth, Middlesex. As the site grew, nearby buildings were knocked down and in 1944 the construction of London Heathrow Airport began. The airport now serves as the UK’s main international transport hub, with the most popular flights being New York, Dubai and Hong Kong. It is also the main base for the UK’s carrier - British Airways.
Some facts about Heathrow Airport:
With an average of over 1,300 flights per day and employing some 76,500 people, Heathrow is one of the world’s busiest airports and an important part of the UK economy. There is also much speculation over the potential to expand the airport even further - with the addition of a third runway.

The airport is open 24 hours and there are several places to relax, grab a bite to eat or catch up on some work with the free Wi-Fi.
