At the airport, Blog,
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Festive cheer and seasonal smiles can be seen all over London, filled with sparkling fairy lights and delightful decorations. The same cheer and buzz can be felt off the streets and within the UK’s biggest airport! If you are travelling through Heathrow this festive season, then we have an array of activities to add some extra seasonal sparkle to your travels. 

Festive gifting made easier at Heathrow

If you’re a last-minute shopper and decided to leave some Christmas shopping right before catching your flight, then you’re in luck, as we have a bunch of special seasonal touches that’ll elevate your gifts that little bit more.

There will be gift-wrapping stations dotted around the Terminals, including personalised ribbon printing, and unique Christmas cards that can include a Polaroid printout. There will also be special chocolate offers to make your holiday gifting that little bit sweeter.

Don’t miss out on the unique claw machines in each terminal that include some amazing prizes, such as Bose speakers and gift sets from Rituals! Try your luck and make your airport journey a memorable one. 


Seasonal serenades

It’s easy to think of sparkling lights and massively decorated Christmas trees when it comes to getting into the festive spirit, but here at Heathrow, we want you to enjoy the special sounds of the season through carolling with a twist.

The Brass Quintet and Jingle Belles will be filling the airport with echoes of classic and much-loved Christmas songs and carols through instrumentals and harmonising.

So, even if you’re in a rush and can’t stop to take in the dazzling sights of the decorated airport, your ears can be treated to some festive cheer as you navigate through the Terminals to your flight!

Here is the schedule of each musical group:

Brass Quintet –

Terminal 2 – 21st December, 12pm-4pm

Something a little extra special for kids

Travelling with little ones isn’t always the easiest, especially over the busy Christmas period, so to make it a bit easier on you and to add a bit of extra excitement to your kids’ travels, we have a tonne of activities happening at Heathrow!

Father Christmas and Elf – your kids can sit on Santa’s lap before jetting off and get a lovely picture with the big man that they can cherish during their holiday and beyond.

Christmas Activities – from unique colouring packs to a fun caricaturist, there’s lots to keep them busy before take off.

Kids eat free – it’s back for the festive period! Kids Eat Free* offer. It’s a simple concept: when an adult chooses an item from the main menu, your kids can eat for free. They'll be spoilt for choice with great restaurants to choose from and a wide range of dishes. Kids Eat Free will be running from 15th December – 1st January. 


From everyone here at Heathrow, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
