Catering to more than 190,000 daily passengers, London’s Heathrow airport (LHR) boasts its fair share of superlatives–it’s not only the world's busiest international airport, but the biggest in the UK, the closest airport to London and, since the opening of its fifth terminal back in 2008, home to the UK’s largest freestanding building. With over 90 airlines flying to and from more than 170 international destinations, if you’re traveling to London, there’s a good chance you’ll be landing at Heathrow.
The only airport linked to the city by London Underground trains, Heathrow makes a convenient choice, but the enormous airport can seem overwhelming to first-time visitors, so leave plenty of time to check in or collect your luggage and pass through security. Don’t worry if you’re arriving unprepared or your flight is delayed either, as Heathrow has just about everything you could ever need right on site—currency exchange facilities, accommodation and luggage storage.
