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)

    Located on Oslo’s waterfront, Norway’s new National Museum is now open to the public and it’s spectacular in size, scope and Scandinavian sophistication.

    Officially called the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, it’s the largest art museum in the Nordics with a total area of 54,600 square metres and housing 6,500 works across 86 exhibition rooms.

    As well as an enviable plethora of full-time works, the building includes a dazzling space for temporary exhibitions – the Light Hall situated on the roof – which has walls made from translucent marble.

    It’s a design statement that figuratively and literally tops off a remarkable build.

    There's lots of good stuff inside, too.

    Chronologically arranged, the museum shows in broad outline the history of the visual arts, design and crafts in Norway – which should please Scandi style aficionados.

    Elsewhere, one of the main attractions is the museum’s iconic collection of works by Edvard Munch, including his famous “The Scream”. Other notable works include paintings by Pablo Picasso and an array of other influential 20th century artists, such as Henri Matisse and Anna-Eva Bergman.

    There is also a rather wonderful room dedicated to renowned architect Sverre Fehn and permanent installations by Per Inge Bjørlo and Ilya Kabakov.

    When you're done probing the gallery's fineries, you can refresh on the large open-air roof terrace, take five in a café that faces the central courtyard and commemorate your visit in the museum's shop ensconced inside an existing 19th-century building.

    It's a vast, wondrous place that should be added to any Oslo itinerary whether you're travelling for business or pleasure.

    “Norway now has a modern museum with classic qualities,” says its director, Karin Hindsbo. “It enables us to show more of the collection than ever before, with spaces for temporary exhibitions of entirely new formats on an international scale.”

    “Our vision is to make art accessible to each and every person, and to reflect our times and the society in which we live,” she continues. “If we succeed in doing this, we believe that the museum could be the most important meeting place in society.”
