Heathrow offers a wide range of services and facilities to help smooth the journey for parents travelling with babies and children.
There's lots of pre-flight fun and entertainment for your children in our free Mr. Adventure Stay & Play areas. With slides, soft play areas and separate baby and junior zones, there's plenty to keep young ones entertained and exercised. Mr Adventure colouring-in and activity sheets are also available.
There are baby change areas in each terminal at Heathrow, both before and after security control – just look for signs with this symbol. Many are located alongside the toilet blocks.
While there are restrictions on the liquids you can take in your hand luggage, when travelling with a baby you’re allowed to take enough baby food, sterilised water, prepared baby milk and expressed breast milk (up to 2 litres) for the journey. Any additional liquids will need to be packed in your checked-in baggage.
If you are travelling without your baby, liquid items should be stored in containers not exceeding 100ml or in your checked-in baggage. However expressed breast milk up to 2 litres is permitted even if you are travelling without your baby.
At Heathrow, we like to simplify travelling for everyone… including babies. Let us help you prepare your little one’s carry-on with our Reserve & Collect baby milk service. Simply order baby milk, baby food and everything you need for travelling with your baby and we’ll have it ready for you at the airport after security.
Child-friendly restaurants are easy to find at Heathrow, with most providing high chairs and children's menus.
Many of our restaurants take part in our Kids Eat Free meal deal to help keep little tummies full while you wait for your flight. Mr Adventure’s been out discovering delicious meals for your young explorers. Look out for the Mr Adventure signs at participating restaurants or ask at our information desk.
