Luxury at Heathrow Airport

Flying is not just about getting onto a plane and travelling to your destination anymore. For those who love luxury, the journey should be as exciting as the destination. Here on High End Traveller we have covered premium lounge openings at some of world’s best airports. In this post we centre our focus of London’s main hub Heathrow.

London is considered the playground of the rich and is home to the largest number of billionaires in the world. Heathrow reflects this wealth by providing top services to those who fly from it. So with that in mind, let’s look at the top luxury services Heathrow has to offer.

Personal Shopping

One of the great joys of travelling by air is shopping before you get onto your flight. Heathrow was one of the first airports to introduce a personal shopping experience. The service was so well received that airports across the globe have replicated it.

The experience has been positively reviewed by some of the web’s top lifestyle bloggers. One such blogger was I am Ella who wrote a detailed article on the experience.
She noted that the special treatment started the moment she arrived at the airport. She was collected at the terminal entrance and taken through security without having to wait. She reported that the personal shopper room had a sofa, dressing table, clothes rack, changing room, and of course champagne. The blogger noted how she could ask for advice on any piece of clothing from the expert assistants. Those who book the personal shopping experience can also arrive earlier at the airport (5-6 hours before their flight).

Gourmet Food

Eating out in London is one of the city’s great joys. Yet many travellers do not get to experience the city’s famous gastronomic scene. However, if you are leaving London via Heathrow you will still have a chance to try the food of two of the UK’s most talented chefs.

Leading UK airport experts Parking4Less discussed in their blog post entitled ‘Heathrow in Search of Perfection’ that both Gordon Ramsay and Heston Blumenthal have set up shop at the famous airport. Ramsay and Blumenthal both have a three Michelin star restaurant (there are only four in the country) and both have brought their skills to Heathrow. If you’re a foodie and want to try dishes prepared by two of the world’s greatest chefs be sure to visit their respective restaurants.



World Class Lounges

Heathrow has several lounges for its business and first class passengers, yet one stands apart from the rest and that is Qatar Airways London Heathrow Premium Lounge. The exclusive lounge is in terminal 4 and has been described as a highly restrained adult environment by airport reviewer Head for Points.

The lounge includes a huge array of luxury services for their guests. There is a fine dining restaurant and delicatessen to eat at. For guests looking to freshen up before the flight the lounge features private showers. The service in the lounge has been compared to that of a five-star hotel.
