Travelling through Heathrow this Christmas

We’re looking forward to welcoming you and your loved ones to the airport this Christmas and working hard to make sure your trip runs as smoothly as possible. To help with this process, please be aware of the following:

 

Consider your arrival time
Allow three hours to check-in before a long-haul flight and two hours to check-in before a short-haul flight – and make sure all your travel documents are up-to-date. Please don't turn up significantly early for your flight as this can cause unnecessary congestion in the airport and you may not be able to check in your bags. You can monitor current security waiting times using the Heathrow app and on your flight detail page.

 

Remove liquids from hand luggage
You can’t take liquids with a capacity over 100ml through security. Liquids under 100ml should be removed from your hand luggage and placed in a single transparent, re-sealable plastic bag of not more than one litre capacity. Each bag must be able to close properly with all the items inside. These bags are available free-of-charge before security. Passengers are strictly limited to one bag of liquids per person.

(“Liquids” includes all drinks and syrups; creams, lotions, oils, perfumes; sprays, shaving foam, deodorants, gels and pastes; soups, jams, preserves, chutneys – and snow globes)

    The Prince of Wales

    The Prince of Wales logo

    At The Prince of Wales we continually focus on our food... where it comes from, the supplier, the grower, the way it is stored, prepared, described, presented and finally cooked. We constantly strive for honest, good quality food and a friendly warm service that is special for our guests.

    In Britain we love familiarity and warmth. Whether that comes from the welcome as you enter your local pub or having your favourite pint pulled and waiting for you before you even get to the bar. The great British pub stands for so much more than just a place to grab a drink and a bite to eat. It’s part of the fabric of what makes Britain great.

    Pre-order food and beverages

    We have teamed up with Grab to offer you a pre-order food and drink service. We are working with a selection of restaurants across all Heathrow terminals and the service is available exclusively through the Heathrow App. Why not try it for yourself and if you haven’t so already download the Heathrow App.
